White Christmas Mix

Printer-friendly version

Here’s what you need:


  • 1 box Corn Chex cereal (you can also use Rice Chex)
  • 1 bag pretzel sticks
  • 1 package “white” or “chocolate” bark (most stores only have this available during the holidays, so I stock up!)
  • M&M’s


Place the blocks of bark in a microwave proof bowl. Heat in the microwave in short, 30 second increments, stirring the blocks every time.  The blocks will gradually soften (2 minutes is all I need in my microwave).  HEAT JUST UNTIL SOFT. Stir in a couple of cups of cereal (don’t measure, just eyeball!) and stir gently. After the cereal is mostly incorporated in the bark, add the pretzels and stir.

At this point, I add more ingredients (alternating between cereal and pretzels) until until there’s no excess melted bark sitting in the bottom of the bowl.  Next, stir in the M&M’s.

Finally, spread the mixture into a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.  Allow it to dry before breaking apart.

Serve in a bowl or put in glass jars to share with others.
