Favorite Ingredients Friday


During our book adoption year at school I was on several committees to review curriculum. This required me to make several trips to our state capitol. The woman in charge of the Business curriculum for our state always sweetened the deal by having her homemade snack mix on everyone's table.

When I was trying to decide which homemade gift to bring to the other teachers in my department, I decided to share this treat. They didn't go to the meetings, so they hadn't had it yet.

I found a similar recipe and adapted it. This isn't exactly the combination that Barb made, but it's close. I added the dried cherries because I had them in my pantry. The beauty of this recipe is that you can add or take away what you want. Jim wants me to make him a batch using Golden Grahams. You could also add nuts or change the M&Ms to plain. It's all up to you! If you need to bring some snack food to a holiday event over the next week or so, I recommend this one. I guarantee you won't regret it. And the best part is it's EASY!

White Chocolate Snack Mix

1. 2 c Rice Chex
2. 2 c Corn Chex
3. 2 c Wheat Chex
4. 2 c Cheerios
5. 2 c mini pretzels
6. 2 c peanut M&Ms
7. 2 c dried cherries
8. 3 12-ounce bags white chocolate chips
9. 2 T vegetable oil

Mix together the first 7 ingredients. In a double-boiler, melt the white chocolate and vegetable oil. Pour the melted white chocolate over the dry ingredients, and mix until thoroughly coated. Spread out on wax paper until hardened. Break into small pieces.
