3 cups corn chex
1 cup small pretzel twists
1 cup peanuts
2 12-ounce packages white chocolate chips(Ghirardelli)
1 12-ounce package m&m's ( I only found an 8 ounce)
Mix together cereals, pretzels, peanuts and M&M's in a large bowl. Melt white chocolate in a double boiler and stir until smooth. Pour over mixture in the bowl and toss gently until well coated. Spread on wax paper lined cookie sheets and let cool. When cool break up into pieces and store in an airtight container ( not in a warm area because of the chocolate... a pantry cupboard should be ok)
Makes about 16 one cup servings
I found this recipe in a Midwest Living magazine but changed it a little. They used honey-roasted peanuts and I did not have any. I also substiuted white chocolate chopped for the chips because I had a 2.5 pound bar to use up I bought for Christmas baking and didn't use it. I used a little more than half the bar, chopped. It was Ghirardelli bought at Sams club. I am only able to get the white chocolate chips in the winter near the Holidays so I buy a few extra bags to have throughout the year. This would make a great Hostess Gift. My family really liked this one and it did not last long.
