This isn’t so much a recipe as a series of guidelines.
- Two 11 ounce bags of white chocolate chips (I like Ghiardelli but that’s just me. And yes I know that there’s not really any such thing as white chocolate…it’s “white confectioner’s coating” but come on…who doesn’t really just call it white chocolate?)
- 3.5 Cups Cheerios
- 3 Cups Rice Chex (small box)
- 3 Cups Corn Chex (ditto)
- 1 Pound plain M&Ms
- 2.5 Cups mixed nuts (salted, no peanuts)
- 2 Cups small pretzels (Eagle Snacks work well)
Dump in the chips in the bowl and stir with a rubber spatula (every now and then) until they’ve melted smooth. You can walk away from time to time but be careful not to let the water get to hot or the cocoa butter will bog.
Dump everything else in the bowl and fold over and over until the hunks and chunks are well coated.
Spread the mess out on parchment paper or freezer paper and set in a cool place until it sets solid, then break it into pieces and seal in tins.
Dole this stuff out carefully. It is highly habit forming.
