My sister-in law gave me this family recipe of hers a few years ago and it's now become a tradition to make this in my house every Christmas. You'll need a big bowl to mix this in, as it makes a lot! I sent some into work with my husband and everyone loved it. Sweet and salty, the best combination! Enjoy!
5 cups Cheerios (original)
5 cups corn or rice Chex cereal
1 (10oz) bag of mini pretzel twists
2 cups salted peanuts
1 bag plain M&M's (holiday color)
2 bags white chocolate chips
3 Tbls. vegetable or canola oil
Combine first five ingredients into a very large bowl and set aside.
In smaller, microwavable bowl, combine the white chocolate chips and oil, mix well. Microwave for 1 minute, stir. Microwave for another minute, stir. May need one more minute (depending on appliance).
Pour over dry ingredients and mix well. (It may seem like there's not enough chocolate to cover it all, but keep stirring, it will coat everything!)
Spread out on parchment or wax paper lined baking sheets to cool. Store in air tight container.
