It’s that time of the year again! The holiday season — a time for family, friends, and of course, food. Between holiday celebrations and other exciting festivities, there are so many occasions to celebrate during the most wonderful time of the year. There are also countless different desserts and sweet recipes that make the holiday season so special. Pies, cookies, cakes, festive drinks, and more. But what about the perfect holiday snack: Christmas Chex Mix.

If you’re looking for the perfect treat to make this season, look no further. Every year, I make this Christmas Chex Mix around the holidays. It never disappoints, and is certainly a crowd pleaser. It’s sweet, salty, and extremely easy to put together. You only need a few ingredients to make this delicious holiday trail mix. I made it for my roommates last week and it disappeared in less than two hours. Enjoy it as a snack with some friends, or serve it at your holiday party!

Here’s all you’ll need:

- 3 cups Rice Chex (you can also use wheat or corn chex)

- 1 cup Cheerios (I used honey nut cheerios but you can use any kind)

- 1 cup pretzels

- ½ cup white chocolate

- M&Ms (use any kind, I chose peanut

First, get a large plate, or baking sheet. On this sheet, combine the cheerios, pretzels, and rice chex. Then, add a few handfuls of your M&M’s. Mix them all together.

Next, melt some white chocolate, and drizzle it all over your mix. Make sure to combine it all! Then, let it sit for about 30 minutes so the white chocolate can harden. Done!
