This snack mix will be the hero of all your parties and the perfect treat to enjoy while watching a movie with the fam! The mix of sweet M&M's, cereal, and white chocolate with the salty deliciousness of the peanuts and pretzels is a flavor combo that satisfies when those snack cravings hit!

Who doesn't love to have a sweet crunchy snack when watching a movie? There is just something about having a yummy treat to munch on when you're sitting on the edge of your seat!

With Madison home and the recent DVD release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier on September 9th, a family movie night at our house is in the works, and we'll definitely be passing around a big bowl of this Sweet and Salty Snack Mix!


I picked up some M&M's in the candy aisle at Walmart because M&M's are a very important component of this Sweet and Salty Snack Mix. Be sure to take this coupon with you for $5 off the new Captain America 2 DVD when you purchase the M&M's.

I mixed all of the ingredients up in a big bowl...

Then I melted some white chocolate in the microwave with a little bit of coconut oil until it was nice and smooth. I poured the white chocolate over the M&M mixture and stirred to coat everything nicely with the creamy, sweet white chocolate.

Once everything is coated nicely, I spread it out onto a parchment lined baking sheet and allowed the white chocolate to dry. Once it dried, I placed it all in a giant bowl and we were ready for our family movie night!

Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups mini twist pretzels, salted
  • 2.5 cups toasted oat cereal
  • 2.5 cups crispy corn cereal squares
  • 1 cup peanuts, salted
  • 1 cup M&M's
  • 1 (11 ounce) package white chocolate chips
  • 1.5 tablespoons coconut oil or vegetable oil

Instructions

  1. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl combine 2.5 cups pretzels, 2.5 cups oat cereal, 2.5 cups crispy corn cereal, 1 cup peanuts, and 1 cup M&M's. Gently mix to combine.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl combine the white chocolate chips with 1.5 tablespoons of oil and microwave on high for 30 seconds at a time. Stirring well at each 30 second interval. Be very careful not to burn the white chocolate. It can be a bit fussy. The white chocolate should be smooth, so keep stirring to get the smoothness.

Spread the coated snack mix onto the parchment lined baking sheet in an even layer and set aside to dry. Once the white chocolate is dry, transfer the mix to a large serving bowl and enjoy! Store in an airtight container at room temperature.

  2. Hmm I either answered incorrectly or don't know myself at all. LOL Maybe both? Like Yellow, you often have your head up in the clouds. You and Yellow are very much dreamers. It is very easy for you to see the big picture, but not as easy for you to see the details. You have a wide range of friends that do a great job of grounding you and you’re always up for a good time!

  9. You and Orange tend to have a million things going on at one time. You are a multitasking extraordinaire. You are a social butterfly and don’t have one set group of friends, but fit into many different groups seamlessly. You have many different hobbies and love trying new things.
