Connie's Cereal Party Mix

Comment on this recipe

During the busy holiday season, I buy pretty containers, fill them with party mix, seal, then place a colorful bow on top. It makes a good and pretty gift for those you want to remember at Christmas times, such as teachers, bus drivers, delivery people, etc.

Ingredients

1-1/2 pounds almond bark or white chocolate
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 box (13 ounces) Trix cereal
2 cups Rice Krispies
2 cups Cheerios
1 can (12 ounces) or 3 cups mixed nuts
1 package (8 ounces) small round pretzels

Instructions

Melt almond bark or white chocolate in double boiler or in microwave. Add vegetable oil. Mix until smooth. In large bowl or container, combine the cereals, nuts and pretzels. Pour melted almond bark or the white chocolate over the cereal mixture and mix well. Cool. Keep in sealed container when not being served.
