Tis the Season For…White Christmas Crunch!

22 12 2009

I ran across the original recipe about 10 years ago, but changed it as it became a house favorite.  This is quick to make, equally quick to clean up from, and there’s never any left over.  That’s a tough combination to beat!

White Christmas Crunch

3 cups Cheerios
3 cups Rice Chex
3 cups Corn Chex
1 can salted peanuts
1 med. bag M & M’s chocolate
1 med. bag M & M’s peanut butter
1-10 oz. bag mini pretzel twists
2 bags white chocolate chips
2 Tbsp. shortening NOT oil

Place all dry ingredients into a very large mixing bowl. Place white chocolate chips and shortening into a glass measuring cup and microwave at 30 second intervals until melted and smooth.   Stir the melted chocolate into the cereal mixture until well coated. Turn out onto 3 foil lined cookie sheets and allow to cool.  Break into pieces to serve.  Keep in air tight bags or containers.

Tasting Notes:
This has that sweet-salty-crunchy thing going for it.  People find it difficult to pinpoint what the ingredients are because of the peanut butter M &  M’s.   It vanishes wherever I take it.  I make it to take to work every Christmas.  Merry Christmas!

Sweet and salty is my all time favorite combo. I know I could make that disappear quickly. Yum!
