White Chocolate Christmas Mix – AKA Christmas Crack

White Chocolate Christmas Mix

This White Chocolate Christmas Mix is also known as Christmas Crack by some, but no matter what you call it, you know that it is absolutely addicting! This mix consists of M&Ms, peanuts, Cheerios, Chex cereal, pretzels and white chocolate. This is a great easy treat to make for gifts, parties or just because!

Here are some tips for making my White Chocolate Christmas Mix:

  • If you would rather, you could use vanilla almond bark instead of the white chocolate chips. Either would work in this recipe, and sometimes the almond bark is easier to melt without burning.
  • Feel free to add a little more of any of the ingredients that you love! We usually add a little more M&Ms, because my kids like to pick them out of this!
  • Either rice or corn Chex will work for this recipe. You can use on or the other or even a mixture of both.
  • Be sure to let this cool completely before you break it apart and store or serve it. If not, you will end up with a big mess on your hands.

These are the ingredients that you will need for this Chex Christmas Mix:

  • Chex cereal
  • Pretzel sticks
  • Cheerios
  • M&Ms
  • Peanuts
  • White chocolate chips

  1. I’ve made this several times. Today I tailored it for Halloween. I added bugles. I dipped some in black melts for wizard hats. I found fall colored chocolate sixlets candies instead of M And M’s. And I melted green and white melts to give it a ghoulish color. It was a big hit and I’m already plotting every holiday version!
