Winter Party Trail Mix

Winter Party Trail Mix

Edited on Nov 29, 2007

This mix tastes great to kids of all ages. Keep it in a sealed container, such as a zipping plastic bag or a jar with a tight-fitting lid, for up to two weeks.


4 cups thin pretzels, any shape
2 cups raisins
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup round oat cereal
12 oz. package Nestle white chocolate chips
1 cup M&M candies (Hint: choose seasonal colors)


Combine pretzels, raisins, cranberries, and oat cereal, tossing gently to blend. In a microwave, or double boiler over simmering water, melt white chocolate chips, stirring occasionally until of nearly liquid condition.
Remove from oven. If using double-boiler, dry bottom of bowl. Drizzle over snack mix in bowl, toss, and continue drizzling until all pieces are completely coated. Spread out on waxed paper to cool for an hour. Gather up, and stir in candies. Package as desired. Hint: Attach colorful handmade labels for a much-appreciated gift. Great for teachers.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
