Everyone in Indianapolis knows about this recipe, it’s the White Chocolate Party Mix featured in our Jr. League cookbook, Winners. I’ve tweaked this “White Chocolate Monster Munch” so all my favorites are in this version of the medley: Rice Chex, pretzels, cashews and M&M’s.

But basically, you can add whatever cereal, nut or candy that you’d like. The original also calls for Corn Chex, Cheerios and dry roasted peanuts.

I think I’d eat shoe leather if it was covered in white chocolate, so I’m always thrilled when I get a generous bagful at Christmas from my neighbors. Made with red and green M&M’s makes it extra festive for a holiday hostess gift.

Halloween Chex Mix

With this  Halloween Chex Mix AKA White Chocolate Monster Munch, I used Autumn colored milk chocolate M&M’s, but the classic would work fine, too. Revert back to peanuts instead of cashews if that’s your preference. Throwing in some candy corn would be another perfect autumnal ingredient and would definitely mark this as a Halloween treat.
