Chocolate White Chex Mix

white chocolate chex mix Recipe by KELLY HAMILTON

“Chocolate White Chex Mix” This sweet and salty mixture is made up of pretzels, corn chex, cheerios, peanuts, m&m’s, and white chocolate. It’s your everyday chex mix with a little something extra! It doubles as a mid-day snack, but also as something sweet for a dessert. You could eat it for breakfast and wouldn’t judge you one bit.

Ingredients Needed For This Chocolate White Chex Mix:

This is your typical chex mix recipe, but just to point out a few things below:

  • Chex cereal- you can use corn or rice chex for this recipe!
  • peanuts & pretzels- Get salted for both of these to really give you that salty/sweet combo you’re looking for here
  • white chocolate- Use plain old white chocolate chips for this recipe because they’re easy to find
  • oil- canola or vegetable oil work great

Step By Step Instructions For Chocolate White Chex Mix:

Step 1: Combine pretzels, cheerios, corn chex, peanuts, and m&m’s into a VERY large bowl. If you don’t have a big enough bowl, use two and put equal amounts of each ingredient in both bowls.

Step 2: In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave chips and oil on medium-high for 2 minutes. Stir, and then continue to microwave in 10-second intervals until completely melted and smooth.

Step 3: Pour white chocolate over cereal mixture and mix well with a rubber spatula or clean hands.

Step 4: Spread out over 3 parchment paper-lined baking sheets and let cool completely. Break apart and store in an airtight container.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Change the theme for different holidays- use green & red m&ms for Christmas, red white and blue for 4th of July. You can even add 3-4 tbsp of colored sprinkles to make it extra festive.
  • Use the biggest bowl you can find- sometimes we have to split this up into 2 bowls if we don’t have one big enough.
  • Use your hands- Find that mixing the white chocolate into the chex mix works best if you use your hands vs. a spatula. Gives you a nice even coat, so don’t be afraid to get your hands a little dirty!
  • Use parchment or wax paper- this is the easiest to use if you don’t want your white chocolate to cool and stick to whatever you put it on.

Storing & Freezing:

This chex mix can be stored in an airtight container or zip-lock bag for 2-3 days at room temperature (as long as it’s not too hot inside, it is chocolate so it will melt if too hot).

It stays best if kept in the freezer where it’ll stay fresh for up to 1 month. Typically make a batch and put it right into the freezer and just serve it straight from there!

  • Use parchment or wax paper- this is the easiest to use if you don’t want your white chocolate to cool and stick to whatever you put it on.
  • Cut this recipe in half- this makes A LOT of chex mix, so if you don’t want a ton leftover just cut the recipe in half (although you won’t regret leftover,  promise).
