This is good for parties (or just a fun snack at home), but you could also make a big batch of this, split it up, put it in some cute clear bags, tie with a ribbon, & give as a gift.
1 (10oz) pkg mini pretzels
5 cups Cheerios
5 cups corn chex
2 cups peanuts (salted)
1 lb M&M’s
Combine all & set aside.
Mix the following:
2 pkg (12oz each) vanilla chips
3 Tbs vegetable oil
Heat in microwave (on medium) for 2 minutes. Stir once. Microwave (on high)for 10 seconds.
Stir until smooth. Pour over cereal & mix well. Spread on wax paper lined baking sheet.
Cool & break apart. Store in airtight container. Yield: 5 quarts
Note: I typed out the recipe just as it appeared in my cookbook, but I don’t like to microwave chocolate. There’s too much of a chance it will burn & then be ruined. I place the chocolate & oil in a glass bowl.
I take a small saucepan & put a couple of inches of water in it. Put the put on the burner, then put the glass bowl on top of the saucepan. (Make sure the water does not touch the bowl.) Simmer water while stirring chocolate.
This will melt the chocolate evenly & there is less chance it will burn.)
Variations: You could try this with chocolate chips or butterscotch chips as well!
