I wasn't planning on making this mix for the Christmas weekend but our oldest son, Andre, was rummaging around in the pantry last Saturday until I finally asked what he's looking for and he's like,"Where is that mix with the white chocolate on it?" Had to admit I hadn't made any, but decided if he looks for it if it's not there, maybe I really should make it for him. I'm easily persuaded, wouldn't you say?☺ It helps that it IS delicious, and we ALL like it, and it's SUPER EASY, and doesn't take a lot of time. So here it is folks:
1 bag thin pretzel sticks
5 cups cheerios
5 cups corn chex
2 cups salted peanuts
1 lb. M&M's (optional)
1½ lbs. white chocolate disks
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil, optional
In a large mixing bowl combine the first 5 ingredients; set aside.
In microwave safe bowl, heat the chocolate disks and oil. (White chocolate is usually thin enough for easy coating and mixing, so the oil really is optional. Sometimes I use it , sometimes I don't.)
Heat at 1 minute intervals, stirring well after each. When there are only a few lumps left reduce to 30 second intervals. Overheating chocolate makes it seize and then you can't use it. Stir until it is smooth and lumps are all gone.
Pour over cereal mixture.
Mix gently but well with a rubber spatula until everything is well coated.
Spread out onto a flat surface onto a piece of waxed paper.
Allow to rest until chocolate is set again. Store in an airtight container.
