Have you guys ever seen the episode from Everybody Loves Raymond when Debra gets a recipe from her mother in law (Marie) and she suspects she didn’t give her the right recipe but can’t prove it? Only to figure out later that Marie did give her the right recipe, but she “nicely” let Debra use her spices. Marie was clever in hiding a “fake/wrong” spice in the bunch. Everyone thinks Debra has lost her mind but she insists that she knows something is not right.
Well, this recipe came from my mother-in-law….no no she didn’t give me the wrong recipe but years ago when Matt and I were celebrating our first Christmas together he wanted his mother’s White Christmas. So I emailed her and asked for the recipe. She sent it to me immediately…..then a few weeks went by and she emailed me again, it seems she had omitted an ingredient in the original email. Luckily for me I had not made the treats yet so no harm done. But I couldn’t help but think of that episode when I read the second email….sabotage? Probably not…. right, Penny? 🙂
I make this treat every Christmas and I put it in nice little bag to give to friends and family. It is really good and easy to make.
3 cups Cheerios
3 cups Rice Chex mix
3 cups Corn Chex Mix
2 cups plain chocolate M & M’s (during the holidays you can get the red and green, really cute)
2 cups pretzel sticks broken up
2 cups peanuts (lightly salted)
1 pound white chocolate/almond bark
In a very large bowl, mix all your ingredients except your white chocolate. Set aside.
In a large double boiler or microwave melt your white chocolate. Carefully not to over microwave otherwise it will curdle and you will have to start over.
Pour your melted white chocolate over your mixed ingredients. Gently mix. Lay everything on 2 baking sheet and put in your freezer for 1-2 hours. Break up the cooled treat and put into cute Christmas bags or boxes.
