Last year I posted this simple recipe and except for the Ceviche recipe (which doesn’t qualify as winter “comfort food”), this little bit is the most consistently clicked-through recipe I have!
I made a batch as recently as Saturday, and it didn’t make it through the weekend. So, if you’re not afraid of keeping a little sweet and salt around, definitely give this recipe a try!!
In fact, the most common remark I hear from Billy is, “How quickly can you get this stuff out of here?” Translation: if you swing by our house and this is on hand, you can bet I’ll be sending you home with your own stash!
Here’s what you need:
- 1 box Corn Chex cereal (you can also use Rice Chex)
- 1 bag pretzel sticks
- 1 package “white” or “chocolate” bark (most stores only have this available during the holidays, so I stock up!)
Place the blocks of bark in a microwave proof bowl.
At this point, I add more ingredients (alternating between cereal and pretzels) until until there’s no excess melted bark sitting in the bottom of the bowl. Next, stir in the M&M’s.
Finally, spread the mixture into a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Allow it to dry before breaking apart.
And get it out of your house as soon as possible!
