Christmas Candy Crunch

We are a snack loving family. Honestly, I don’t really know a family that isn’t. So when I whip up a batch of this Christmas Candy Crunch, it can only mean 2 things – we are preparing to give delicious gifts for Christmas to family and friends or we are getting ready for a movie marathon. Inspired by the Candy Corn Crunch for Halloween, this super easy recipe only takes 5 ingredients and about 15 minutes of time. And it’s similar to our Luck of the Irish Party Mix for St. Patrick’s Day.

One of the best things about this snack mix is that you can use whatever ingredients you like. The base for the recipe is Corn Chex cereal and the “glue” holding all the ingredients together are melted white chocolate chips. Then the added ingredients are totally up to you. I used small pretzels, Reese’s mini peanut butter cups and festive M&M’s candy.
