Since today was not a school day, Jackson and I made a few Easter Treats while Carly napped. Along with the chocolate-dipped peeps that have been a blogland favorite,
we also made a long time family favorite...white chocolate mix, and gave it an Easter twist by using the fun pastel M&M's. Here's the recipe, taken from our church cookbook:
In large bowl, combine 5 c Cheerios, 5 c Chex or Crispix, bag of mini pretzels (approx 10 oz), 2 c nuts (I used peanuts and almonds this time), and 1 lb M&Ms.
In microwave safe bowl, melt 2 packages (12 oz each) vanilla chips with 3 tbsp vegetable oil. Stir until smooth. Pour over cereal mixture and mix well. Spread onto wax paper until cool.
Break apart, eat, and if you have any leftovers....store them in an airtight container!
