{EASY} Easter Snack Mix

This snack is SUPER easy and also SUPER addictive. Once you start eating it you won't be able to stop.


But it has Cheerios and Chex in it, so it is kinda healthy, right?

What you'll need:

  • 5 Cups Cheerios
  • 5 Cups Corn Chex
  • 2 Cups Salted Peanuts (skip peanuts if there are allergies in the class)
  • 1 Large Bag of M&M's
  • 1 Package (10oz) Miniature Pretzels
  • 2 Packages (12oz each) Vanilla Baking Chips
  • 3 Tbsp Vegetable Oil

* One full batch will be enough for an entire class to share. If you want to make a smaller amount, just use 1/2 of what is listed above for each ingredient.

How to make it:

  • In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients; set aside.
  • In a large microwave-safe bowl, heat chips and oil on medium-high for 2 minutes, stirring once. Microwave on high for 10 seconds; stir until smooth. It is easy to over-cook it, so be sure to check on it often.
  • Pour melted chips over cereal mixture and mix well. Be sure to stir down to the bottom of the bowl to make sure it coats evenly.
  • Spread the mixture onto waxed paper.
  • Let it sit to cool 15-20 minutes until the chocolate is no longer sticky.
  • Store in airtight container.
  • YIELD: 5 quarts.
