White Chocolate Snack Mix

Recipe by  

"Here is a sweet snack mix that is delicious and colorful. Saltiness and sweetness is the best combination! Don't be afraid of trying other cereals, candy or nuts. Salted almonds, granola, or, butterscotch chips would be fine substitutes or additions."

I've been making this for years, but I use only one Tbsp of oil. This helps the white chocolate to retain a bit more of a "chocolate" consistency. I also substitute Peanut candy-coated chocolate pieces because my family just can't get enough of the nuts. You can substitute Valentines, Easter, 4th of July and Fall colored candy pieces to adapt this to any holiday or season. Great alternative to traditional snack mixes.

3.5/5 stars. I was so excited to find this recipe because a woman at my church always made a similar mix when I was a kid and I absolutely loved it. I was somewhat disappointed with this recipe because there is simply not enough chocolate to coat all the ingredients--and I used two FOURTEEN oz. bags of choc. chips plus the listed 3 tbsp of oil! I'm going to try adding at least another half bag and see if it's better.

This was the best Christmas snack I've ever made! Following someone else's suggestion, I reduced the amount of oil just a bit. I used holiday-shaped pretzels with the green and red M&Ms. I also used golden grahams cereal to add a little extra sweetness to go with the salty of the peanuts and pretzels. I couldn't put it down.

I make this recipe with Christmas tree shaped pretzels, and red and green M & M's. When tied into a cellophane bag and inserted into a festive container, this makes a tasty, inexpensive and personal gift! I also print the recipe on a recipe card and slip it into the container, since everyone always asks for the recipe.

I have given this snack mix as Christmas gifts two years in a row now. I always get people raving about it. I absolutely love it too and have difficulty stopping myself from eating all of it when I'm making it! I usually add about 1/2 package more of the white chocolate chips just to cut down on the oil and cover everything better. I also spread my whole kitchen table with waxed paper (I tape it to the table with tape) and just dump this stuff out on it to cool. Then, just throw away the paper when you're done! Makes clean-up easier, I think! This is good stuff -- you can't go wrong with it!

I found the chocolate coating to be kind of wet or greasy even after letting it set up. I ended up putting the mix back into the bowl and tossing it all with a little powdered sugar. It fixed the greasy problem and still tasted good. I loved the sweet and salty combination, but next time I won't add 3T of oil to the chocoalate chips.

I love this mis and make it all the time. Since my time is limited, I have adapted it to my "busy mom" schedule. I buy the foil snack bags of Traditional Chex Mix and add in extras like M&M's, peanuts, crusehd up candy bar. The bag already has the pretzels and the seasoning is wonderful. If I can find the white bark I use that, if not, then white chocolate chips work great.

This is the one I have been looking for! It is utterly addictive. Makes a ton of snack mix. I used christmas mix m&m's and square pretzels. Filled disposable decorating bags with it and tied at the base with red and green ribbons to give as office gifts. Resembles snow covered Christmas trees.
