Spring Snack Mix – makes 8 party bags
2 cups Pretzel Sticks
2 cups rice Chex
1 bag microwave popcorn, popped
1 bag- 12 ounces white Wilton melting candies, sold at Michael’s and Walmart
Spring colored sprinkles
8 Wilton Party bags, sold at Michael’s or Walmart
Cover a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick foil. In a very large bowl place the pretzels, rice Chex, and popcorn (If your bowl is not large enough you may have to divide the mix in half and make half at a time). Melt the white Wilton melting candies in the microwave according to package directions. Pour melted candies over the pretzels, rice Chex and popcorn; stirring to coat the mix evenly.
Pour mix onto rimmed baking sheet and spread out. Sprinkle the pastel sprinkles and M&M’s on top. Do not mix after you have sprinkled the sprinkles and M&M’s on or the white chocolate will cover the candies! Once the mixture is set (it takes about 30 minutes) break up and package in clear or decorative Wilton party bags. Makes 8 party bags. Enjoy!
