Sweet and salty.. this snack mix is sure to be a hit.. whether for the family or at the office…. Beware.. it will be tough stopping once you taste this.. it should come with a warning label.
I cut the recipe in half because I didn’t need a lot… you can do the same… or even double it if you need it for a crowd.
I took the picture using cute Halloween cupcake liners… a word to the wise.. they aren’t that sturdy so if you’re toting it somewhere… be sure to put them in tightly in a airtight container so they don’t spill out.
Another option is to make up little plastic pags and tie them with Halloween ribbon ot black and orange ribbon.. you can find that at a sewing/craft store.
Since pretzels are really the only salty item in the mix.. I added a little more than the recipe called for… you really can be flexible with the amounts.
Remember .. you get what you pay for.. I tried melting inexpensive baking chocolate and ended up throwing it out.. it simply did not melt well.. use a brand you are sure of… or I used Ghiraradelli White Chocolate Baking Chocolate… it really is the best.
Make sure to chop up the chocolate really well.. it will help melt better.
I hope you enjoy this little snack!
Recipe: Halloween Chex Mix
All you need:
4 cups Rice or Corn Chex Mix (I used Rice)
8 oz White Chocolate baking chocolate, chopped
2 cups small pretzel twists
½ cup raisins
1 cup candy corn
½ cup Betty Crocker decorator black and orange candies (for cupcakes etc)
All you have to do:
Place the chopped white chocolate in a large bowl. Microwave on high for about 1 ½ - 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Make sure you stir this well.. you will find after about a minute you can stir out almost all the lumps…
Stir in the pretzels, Chex and raisins until coated... then the candy corn and decorator candies. Spread the mixture out on a waxed paper lined baking sheet.. allow to cool and harden. Mine took a couple of hours to completely harden.
Divide up the mix into cupcake liners or plastic cups or plastic bags.
