Last Minute Treats: Sweet Cereal Party Mix

This recipe takes all of about 7 minutes to throw together and my family can't get enough of it. It is also very flexible. Use up whatever you have in the cupboards! I've eaten this several times with Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal in it and it was excellent. But you can use any combination of cereal you want. I used 5 cups of Cheerios, 2 cups Rice Chex and 3 cups Corn Chex. I also used peanuts and subbed in some white almond bark because I only had 1.5 bags of white chocolate chips. See? Totally flexible!

Sweet Cereal Party Mix
10 cups cereal
2 cups nuts
10 oz bag of pretzels
1 big bag of M&Ms (mine were from Halloween! Oh well!)
2 12 oz bags of white chocolate chips (or white almond bark)
3 Tablespoons coconut oil (veggie/canola is fine)

In a very large bowl (I used a roasting pan) mix together all ingredients except white chocolate and oil.

Over a double boiler or in a microwave (stir every 30 seconds), melt chocolate and oil. Pour chocolate over cereal mixture and mix well to coat. Allow to cool until set. Break apart as desired to eat. Enjoy!
