White Chocolate Snack Mix

White Chocolate Snack Mix
– adapted from an Alton Brown’s recipe for White Trash, no longer available from Alton but certainly searchable

Prep time: 15 minutes, give or take


  • 2 cups Cheerios toasted oat cereal
  • 3 cups Chrispix rice/corn cereal
  • 8 ounces M&M’s plain chocolate candy
  • 1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
  • 1 cups small pretzels
  • 1 (11 ounce) packages white chocolate chips (Ghirardelli brand preferred)


  1. Dump the cereals, M&Ms, nuts & pretzels in a large bowl.
  2. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave or in a double boiler. Melt very slowly, stirring occasionally, being careful not to burn the chocolate.
  3. Dump melted chocolate over the rest of the ingredients and fold over and over until you have well-coated hunks and chunks.
  4. Spread the whole mess out on parchment paper and set in a cool place until it sets up, then break it into pieces.
  5. Store in zip-top bags or air-tight containers.

Recipe can be doubled.
