I made this super easy, super fun, super tasty Holiday Snack Mix to share with friends on Easter. It has just the right mix of salty and sweet – and by changing the type of chocolate candy, it’s perfect for any holiday gathering!
You can use just about any type of cereal you want to make this snack mix. Here’s what I used…
4 cups toasted rice cereal
2 cups toasted oat cereal
2 cups pretzels
1 bag Hershey’s candy coated eggs
1 bag white chocolate chips
First mix the cereals, pretzels, and candy eggs together in a large bowl. Place the white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave on high for another 30 seconds. Stir until smooth, microwave for another few seconds if needed. Immediately pour over snack mix and toss gently until well coated.
Spread mix onto wax paper and let set.
When cool and set, break into pieces. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.
Change the candy to red, white, and blue M&M’s for 4th of July, or Fall colored M&M’s for Halloween or Thanksgiving, or red and green M&M’s for Christmas. You can also use colored candy melts in place of the white chocolate chips – or chocolate or butterscotch chips. I think Reese’s pieces would be yummy in this mix, too! Or maybe add some peanuts – really it’s just whatever tickles your taste buds! 😋
