This was such a great recipe. My 5yr old daughter helped make it with me- couldn't find wheat nuts- used chocolate covered sunflower seeds- that worked great. Also instead of choc. peanuts- used choc. covered pecans. We put in decorative glass containers with computer labels and named it as our daughters' "Special Christmas Recipe"- she was so proud-when she gave it to relatives- she would tell people "I made it my ownself- with my own two hands! Thanks for the recipe- it added alot of fun to the holidays!
Yum! I also used dried cranberries instead of the wheat nuts. In place of chocolate covered peanuts I found cocoa covered peanuts which provided a nice contrast to the red and green M&Ms. This made a lot. I was able to give away three bags in gift food baskets and still keep a bowl for ourselves. Thanks for the easy colorful Christmas snack!
I give this 5 stars 'cuz it sounds so good! The Wheatnuts make it unique...for those of you that can't find them they are in the snack section of the grocery store usually on a top shelf where the Chexmix and stuff like that is...NOT with all of the canned nuts. If you've never tried them they aren't actually nut they have a nut-like flavor and most of the variety of shapes don't remotely resemble a nut! Make the extra effort to find them. They are addicting and like nothing you've tried before! I think the additon of Craisins is a great idea and I will add those as well. White yogurt coated raisins or white choc. coated mini pretzels would also be a fun & colorful addition! Thanks for this new & different version of a salty & sweet snack! I will be giving this away to teachers neighbors pastor friends etc. and I'm sure my kids will have a blast putting it together and bagging it up for everyone!
I didn't make the mix exactly as written. I used one jar of salted roasted peanuts two bags of Christmas M & M's one bag of white chocolate chips one bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips and a large bag of Craisins. The tartness of the craisins helped cut the sweetness of the candy and the salty peanuts were a nice contrast to the other ingredients. Mixed together this stuff tastes sooo delicious! And so quick and easy! I put it in Mason jars for teacher gifts as well.
