Connie's Cereal Party Mix

Comment on this recipe

I use this at the holiday season. I fill pretty Christmas tins and give them as gifts.

Ingredients

1-1/2 pound 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) mixed nuts, about 3 cups
8 ounces small round pretzels

Instructions

Place almond bark or the white chocolate in double-boiler (or in microwave) and add the vegetable oil. Heat until smooth and melted. Mix all the cereals, nuts and the pretzels together in a large pan or bowl. Pour the melted almond bark or white chocolate mixture over the party mix and mix well. Cool in container. Keep in sealed container when not being served.
