Hi Friends,

Kids big and small love to help in the kitchen — especially when you're whipping up a snack that combines a few of their favorite flavors. This sweet-meets-crunchy mix is sure to be a big hit. Make extra to package in plain paper lunch bags embellished with one of our free printable labels.

  • 1 box Chex cereal (any flavor)
  • 5-6 cups popped plain popcorn
  • 1 bag of small pretzel knots
  • 1 bag of green and brown M&M's (or coconut, peanut or peanut butter M&M's)
  • 1 bag of chocolate-covered raisins
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 package almond bark/white chocolate candy melts

In a large saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate chips; add the peanut butter and mix until smooth. Remove from heat and add cereal and mix until cereal is coated. Meanwhile, pour powdered sugar into a large plastic bag. Pour coated cereal into bag and shake until cereal is covered in powdered sugar.

Next, melt the almond bark according to package directions and pour over popcorn, then mix until popcorn is well coated with white chocolate. Add M&M's and about half a bag of pretzels and toss together. Add chocolate-covered raisins and mix gently, then pour onto a large sheet of wax paper and allow to dry. Once dry, break into pieces and mix with the chocolate/peanut butter cereal mix. Store sweet and salty mix for several days in an airtight container.
