12 cups Rice Chex cereal (or store brand)
1 bag (12 oz) white chocolate chips
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup dried cherries
1/3 cup pecans, coarsely crushed
1/3 cup green and red candy-coated chocolate pieces
(see my tips below)

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!


1: Place cereal in a large bowl.

2: Place white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and zap on high for 20 second intervals, stirring between each, until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Pour over cereal.

3: Add coconut, cherries, pecans, and candy pieces. Toss until well coated.

4: Pour cereal onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Allow to sit in a cool, dry location until it firms up. Break into pieces.

Darlene’s Tips: You can use a mix of rice, wheat and corn cereal if you prefer. You can also add other shapes of cereal, like Os or balls. Use any nuts you like or skip the nuts. You might try flavoring the melted white morsels with pepermint extract for a more Christmas flavor. Add candy sprinkles to the mix too or crushed candy canes!
