What You'll Need

  • 9 cups assorted unsweetened cereals*
  • 3 cups salted nuts
  • 2 cups pretzel sticks
  • 2 - 12 ounce packages (4 cups) white chocolate chips

How to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Cover a large surface with waxed or parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, mix together cereals, nuts and pretzels. In a microwavable bowl, melt white chocolate chips in microwave on 70 percent power for 1 minute. Stir. If necessary, continue to microwave in 10 to 15 second increments until melted. Stir melted chocolate into cereal mixture until well coated. Quickly spread out over covered surface. Once cooled, break-up and store in resealable containers or bags.

    *My suggestion for cereals that can be used with this recipe include Cheerios, and/or all Chex flavors.
