I make this every Christmas now with the following changes: used 2 pkgs of Ghiradelli white chocolate chips (tastes much better than the other brands) used 1 can whole cashews and 1 bag red & green M&M's without peanuts. This is so good I am thinking of packing it up in holiday food bags for giving at the office next year. Read More

I had a very hard time with this recipe. I have had something similar to this mix before however it tasted much better than this blend. I thought this version was a waste of time money and effort. Read More

Every time I make this people ask me for the recipe. We love it. The only thing I do different is melt the white chocolate in the microwave 1 minute at a time mixing in between and add cashews instead of peanuts. Read More

Delicious and so easy. I simplified and only used 4C Rice Chex 3C pretzel sticks and 2C peanuts. I used white chocolate chips and just melted them in the microwave on Medium power. So good- we can't stop eating it! Read More

This is a perfect version of this holiday favorite -- don't bother looking anywhere else for your recipe. I agree with other reviewers that the double boiler is unnecessary -- just melt chips or broken-up bars in the microwave. PLEASE don't economize on this recipe -- Ghiradelli is a must to make this taste great -- no stuff labeled "white candy coating" here! When I make this I mix everything except the M & M's with the white chocolate then after it's mixed add the candy. This keeps the candy from melting if the white chocolate is hot. Read More

I made this for a party and everyone loved it! I added craisins and instead of just using peanuts I added a can of mixed nuts as well. Satisfies the sweet/salty tooth! (Melted white chocolate chips in the microwave - MUCH easier) Read More

This is a great variation of Chex Mix! I made it last year for coworkers and it was a HUGE hit. Very easy quick recipe. I came back this year to find the recipe again--it's a keeper. WARNING: You may want to eat it all yourself!:) Read More

Yummy!! I made this for my kindergartener's class snack and it was a hit. I used Halloween M&Ms and it looked very cute. I kept some of it here at home and I couldn't stay out of it. Everyone wants the recipe. Read More

I make an "adult" version with toasted slivered almonds instead of peanuts and dried cranberries instead of m&m's. My "kid" version has no nuts and sprinkles instead of m&ms. Read More
