  • 1 12- ounce boxes of Chex cereal used rice and wheat
  • 1 16- ounce bag Snyder’s sourdough pretzel nibblers
  • 1 7.5- ounce bag Bugles
  • 2 boxes white CandiQuik
  • 1 cup Christmas mini M&M'S divide in half
  • 1 bag Starlight Peppermints about 30, divide in half
  • ½ cup Christmas sprinkles divide in half


  • Cover two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats
  • In a Ziploc bag crush the peppermints using a hammer or meat mallet
  • In a very large bowl combine the two Chex cereals, bugles, and pretzels. Use two large spoons and gently mix so as not to break up the pieces too much.
  • Remove half of the cereal mixture and set aside leaving the remaining half in the very large bowl. You are going to work in two batches.
  • Melt one package of the CandiQuik according to package instructions.
  • Have your M&Ms, crushed peppermints and sprinkles ready.
  • Drizzle about one-fourth of the melted CandiQuick over the cereal. Quickly sprinkle M&Ms, peppermints and candy sprinkles (1 tablespoon at a time) over the cereal. Mix gently using two large spoons.
  • Repeat this step two to three times pouring the melted CandiQuik and then quickly sprinkling M&Ms, peppermints, and sprinkles, then mixing. Do this until you have used all of one package of CandiQuik and half of the M&Ms, peppermints, and sprinkles.
  • Dump this batch onto your prepared baking sheet letting it completely cool.
  • Repeat the above steps for the second batch.
