  • Mix pretzels, corn cereal squares, peanuts, and candy-coated milk chocolate pieces together in a large bowl.

  • Melt white chocolate in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Pour melted white chocolate over pretzel mixture; stir to evenly coat. Quickly transfer mixture to the prepared waxed paper and spread in a thin layer; cool completely. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.

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 completely; gives it a little more festive color. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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 make as many variations as you want! Quick and easy! Read More
