The Ultimate Christmas Candy

There is just nothing better then making a sweet treat to give to friends during the holidays.  Maybe you even make a little bit extra and save it to munch on while you are wrapping presents in the next several days. 

My mom has been making this Christmas Candy ever since I was little and I love wrapping it in fun packaging and giving it to friends to munch on. 

Just last week I placed it at every table setting when my friends came over so they had a sweet treat waiting for them after dinner.  It served as both a great table decoration and addition to the tablescape, but a nice take-away as my friends left. 

And the best part, this stuff is really simple.  

I know you have seen it everywhere this holiday season and I don’t claim to have created this recipe, but only to inspire you to use it in ways that you might not have thought before. 

I even put some on my dessert board last week to go to a friend’s party!  

Whether you put it on a dessert board, give it as a gift, or just snack on it during the holiday season… this treat is a must make! 

Simple ingredients make this an easy dessert that you can make over and over again.  

  • 1 block white bakers chocolate
  • 2c Chex mix
  • 1 bag M&Ms (red and green make this super festive – but you could also change it with the holidays and make this treat year round)
  • 1c Pretzels 
  • 2c Cherrios

First melt your chocolate and add it to all of your ingredients. 

After you mix the ingredients place a large sheet of parchment paper out and pour the mixture on the paper.  Note: you want to make sure to mound the mix – you don’t want it to be thin or it will just all break apart into little pieces and your goal is to have some nice big chunks! 

Let it cool and then serve! 

Hope you enjoy this as much as I do this Holiday Season!
