As requested by my buddy, KIP...the following recipe is the BEST holiday stuff on the planet. I must confess that it comes from one of my bosses at work. She makes it every year for the holidays and people FIGHT over the last crumb.
Enjoy, you have been warned.
Holiday WHITE STUFF
2 cups Rice Chex
2 cups Golden Grahams
2 cups Cheerios
2 cups pretzel sticks, broken up
1 can (12 oz) salted peanuts (NOT dry roasted)
1 package white candy coating mix (usually found in the baking section—it is I think about a 20 oz package and it comes in cubes
Put all of the dry ingredients in a very big bowl and mix well. Put a few cubes of the coating stuff in a saucepan on low ( I set the burner on 3). Stay with it or it will burn. Stir regularly. As it starts to melt, add more cubes and continue to stir until they are all melted. ( The package says you can melt in the microwave—I strongly advise against it). Pour white stuff over dry ingredients and mix to coat with a large spoon. Turn it out onto a silverstone baking sheet and spread out evenly. Let dry completely, about 3 hours or so. Break it into pieces and enjoy.
