White Chocolate Chex Mix

White Chocolate Chex Mix

This recipe comes from a new dear friend of mine from church, we’ll call her “C”.  C and I were asked to coordinate the food for a big weekend church event.  This was the first time I helped coordinate such a big occasion, but C had done it many times, so I was able to learn a lot from her!  One of the best things I took away from this experience was this recipe.  For the Friday evening session, C and I made dessert for 150 women.  While we served mini cupcakes, brownie bites and tartlettes, C was brilliant in also putting together a big batch of this mix for the guests to enjoy.

I immediately decided I wanted to make this mix myself and thought it would be perfect to give to our pumpkin party guests as favors.  So, I headed to the Dollar Tree and bought some cheap (yet cute!) pumpkin shaped favor bags. It was a quick recipe to whip up and portion out to 25 favors.  You can serve it in favor bags like I did, or just set it out in a big bowl.  Even better…this mix can be used for any event and the ingredients can easily be altered to include your favorite candies!

White Chocolate Chex Mix

Printable Recipe

5 cups Cheerios
5 cups Corn Chex
2 cups peanuts (optional)
10 oz bag small twist pretzels
1 big bag of M&M’s (I used the dark chocolate kind)
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 (12 oz) bags Nestle Premier White Morsels

In a big mixing bowl, mix the cheerios, corn chex, peanuts, pretzels and M&M’s.

Melt the vegetable oil and white morsels together in a double-boiler (or a heat-proof bowl over simmering water) and pour over chex mix.  Mix with wooden spoon or if the bowl has a lid, shake the bowl to mix.  If desired, lay out on wax paper to dry or just let dry in bowl without lid on.

Penny Says: Use generic brand cereal to save money!  I was able to save a couple of dollars by buying the generic brand and there was no difference to the taste!

  1. My family has a recipe like this that they make for family get togethers, it’s dangerous stuff!

  2. That is a definite holiday make recipe!!

  3. I am going to pass this recipe along to my friend Kate! This is the same one she requested, right?

  4. I’ve made something very similar but the main ingredient was popcorn with the cereal and m&m’s thrown in. Yours looks equally good and am certain just as tasty.

  5. ojhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  6. Hi! I am going to use your idea and make this as favors for a party this week! Should this be made the morning of, or can it be made the day before?


    • Hi Lorie,

      It can definitely be made the day before. Just make sure you let it completely cool and dry before putting them in the favor bags, or storing it.

      Have fun at your party!! (I’ll also send this response to your email to make sure you get it.)


  7. This was a hit at the party…thanks for your help!
