Ingredients
  • 5 cups Lucky Charms cereal
  • 3 cups pretzels
  • 1 bag (about 6 1/2 cups) popped popcorn
  • 1 (10-ounce) bag M&M's
  • 3/4 cup sprinkles of your choice
  • 1 1/2 cups dry roasted peanuts (optional)
  • 4 cups (24 ounces) good quality white chocolate, chopped or white candy melts
Instructions
  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the cereal, pretzels, popped popcorn, M&M's, sprinkles, and peanuts, if using.  

  3. In a separate bowl, carefully melt the white chocolate in short 20-30 second bursts in the microwave and stirring well between each burst of heat until the white chocolate is smooth.  

  4. Pour the melted chocolate over the other ingredients and mix well to coat all of the snack mix in white chocolate.    Transfer the mixture to the parchment lined baking sheet and spread out.

  5. As the white chocolate cools, the snack mix will firm up and set (about 10 to 15 minutes).  When set, break into pieces and store in an airtight container.  

Recipe Notes

* I prefer the regular buttered kind but you could use kettle corn or another variety if you like.

If you opt to use white chocolate chips, add 3 tablespoons of oil to them before melting.  It will help them melt better and more smoothly since they have ingredients added to help them keep their shape and not melt as easily.
