Peanut Butter & White Chocolate Holiday Crack

You guys, do not make this. I promise you you’ll regret it.

This is one of those recipes that is 100,000,000 times greater than the sum of it’s parts. I barely even like white chocolate, but for some reason when it’s coated on top of a random mix of things, it becomes literal crack.

So, normally, I would buy every ingredient separately, but when I was in CVS to pick stuff up, I saw these Reese’s snack mixes that basically have every ingredient in one little package. If they were full price I probably would’ve passed, but since they were on Halloween clearance (like $0.90 each…best deal ever), I went for it!

If you can’t find the mix, it’s no big deal, you’ll just need to grab pretzels, reese’s pieces, and mini reese’s cups in addition to the chex, cheerios, white chocolate and peanuts.

On a sheet pan lined with foil, pour the chex and cheerios.

If you’re using separate ingredients (not Reese’s snack mix) add peanuts, Reese’s pieces, and pretzels. If you’re using the Reese’s snack mix, separate the mini peanut butter cups from everything else, and add the separated mix (not the cups).

Melt the white chocolate in the microwave, in 30 second intervals, until fully melted.

Pour the melted white chocolate over the ingredients.

Mix together until everything is coated (I poured the mix into a bowl, but you can mix on the baking sheet if you’re less messy than me!).

Once the chocolate has cooled slightly, but before it becomes firm (give it about 3-4 minutes), mix in the mini Reese’s cups. If you mix these in too early, they will melt and lose their structure.

Spread the mix onto a parchment lined baking sheet, and place into the fridge for at least 15 minutes to let harden.

Once firm, break into chunks and have at it!
