...'Tis The Season!

You know it's really the Christmas season when everyone pulls out their best of the best sweets...cakes, cookies, pies... (Like, be honest, how many pieces of fudge have you eaten this month??) Anywho, we are having some out-of-town friends for dinner tomorrow, and I wanted to send them back on the road with some munchy treats. They have about a 6-hour drive after leaving our house, and ... 'tis the season after all. So, I made a batch of what I call my Christmas candy mix. I make it every Christmas to give out to friends, teachers, and neighbors because it is so easy, and it makes a ton! Plus, there are so many festive and creative containers to put the stuff in. Easy, peasy.

Here's the recipe:
1 10 ounce mini twist pretzels
5 cups cheerios
5 cups corn chex
2 cups salted peanuts
1 lb plain M&M's
1 1/2 lbs. white chocolate almond bark

Mix all the ingredients together (except the chocolate). Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, and then pour over the dry mixture. Mix all together until cereal mixture is all coated in the white chocolate. Pour it out onto wax paper and let it cool/harden. Break it apart in medium chunks and put in ziplock bags or containers to give away.

Ok, you had to ask about the fudge, didn't you?! Ouch.

This looks terrific (and somewhat addictive!) I'm sure your guests appreciated having travel snacks.
No doubt you made them feel right at home.


P.S. We missed having you at the cookie exchange!
