Spring Mix

There’s a popular dessert recipe in my family with an inappropriate name.  Sure there are other names for this dessert, but the real name is politically incorrect.  Though I decided that it must be shared because everyone, and I mean everyone, loves this recipe.
For the sake of being polite, we’ll call it…
Spring Mix
You will need:
•3 cups Cheerios
•3 cups Rice Chex
•3 cups Corn Chex
•3 cups pretzel sticks
•3 cups dry roasted peanuts
•1 bag M&Ms
•3 bags white chocolate chips

1.) Combine all ingredients except M&Ms and white chocolate in a large bowl.
2.) Put white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 3 minutes, stirring every 30-45 seconds until melted.  Continue to stir once chocolate is melted so it starts to cool.

3.) Pour melted chocolate over cereal and stir together.

4.) Then stir, stir, stir!  Make sure everything is very well coated.  Once coated, add the M&Ms  and continue to stir.

5.) Let cool for about an hour and allow mix to harden.  Then break into chunks and store in a dry airtight container.

Still wondering the real name of this delicious concoction?  Well,  here’s a hint.  The first word is the color of egg shells and the second word is what you put out to the curb once a week.  Got it ;)?
Does this politically incorrect  name stop me from eating it?  Not a chance.  It’s sweet, salty, crunchy, and chocolatey. Just make it and give it a try, I bet you’ll be too busy munching to even care.

    1. Haha no not at all!! I laughed 🙂 I wasn’t sure if anyone would care and when I brought it to work and told everyone the name they were all like, it’s called WHAT?!

  1. Ha!
    I have never heard of this mix before, but I think
    that I would like the sweet and salty combination
    of it all. Mmm!

  2. I was so intrigued about what it could be called and then realized I’ve had it before…it’s definitely not as bad as I thought..lol. My Mom makes it at Christmas time with red and green M&M’s but for that Holiday she calles it white chocolate snack mix=)

  3. That looks amazing!!! I can’t wait to make it for my mother, she loves ALL those things so so much! Thank you thank you thank you! I don’t know if I’m right on this one…but what I’m taking with me is that I love me some WT!

  4. Whenever I’ve had this, I’ve always heard it get called ‘White Bark’, a bit nicer name. Its such a weird snack, too, because it looks disgusting but tastes so sweet your body nearly rejects it on the first bite.
