  1. Cover a large area of counter space with waxed paper and tape it down.

I've been making this for years to give as gifts. Very fast and inexpensive. I sprinkle a little colored sugar (red and green) on the mixture once it's spread onto the wax paper before it cools ...

Did no one else think the proportions of this recipe were completely off? No one has a bowl big enough for these ingredients. What a mess.

This is a great snack mix. One bite and you can't stop eating it!

Very addictive. Quick and easy. Makes a lot -- I had to split it up into two large bowls. I used a little bit more white chocolate than called for ... but too much can be overwhelming.

Very good, easy and makes quite a lot. Some of the amounts listed didn't jive with ingredients i purchased, but didn't seem to be a problem. Makes nice gifts for friends and family.

The second time I made it, I accidentally bought rice Chex instead of corn--just as good! I also added more bark: 36 oz total and a few more m&ms. It stuck together better. I think you could ...

Took this to work and got many compliments from coworkers. I simply followed the recipe and found it quick and festive. If you're looking for simple and addictive, this is your mix!

Super easy to make and really versatile! I've made it several times using different colored candies for different events. Fruity Pebbles make it really festive an yummy too!

Totally "Christmas Crack", gave it away with gifts. It was a real hit!
