Snack Mix and a Giveaway!

Today is day two of the Gooseberry Patch giveaway!  For more details and to enter visit yesterday's post featuring Easy Cheesy Bean Dip HERE.

Today's recipe is yummy, too!  (I've tweaked it a bit here and there so I'll give you the GBP recipe and my tweaks, too. 

Touchdown Toss  (page 45)

3 c. doughnut-shaped oat cereal
     (You know, the one that begins with C-H and ends with E-E-R-I-O-S?)
3 c. bite-size crispy corn cereal squares  (Yep, starts with C-H and ends in E-X.)
3 c. cookie-shaped cereal 
3 c. pretzel sticks, broken
3 c. graham crackers, broken
1 c. sunflower kernals
2 c. candy-coated chocolates (The thirteenth letter of the alphabett squared *wink*)
3 c. salted roasted mixed nuts
3 lbs. white melting chocolate, chopped

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except white chocolate.  Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl.  Microwave on high for one minute; stir well.  Continue to microwave at 30-second intervals until chocolate is completely melted.  Pour metled chocolate over cereal mixture; stir to coat well.  Transfer cereal mixture to 2 ungreased 10"x15" jelly-roll pans.  Spread cereal mixture evenly on pans; refrigerate for about 45 minutes, or until chocolate is set.  Break into pieces.  Makes about 24 cups.

 That's our Rebekah...she made this!  She's quite the handy-dandy helper in the kitchen!
Now...here's how we tweaked it!

Since we have some peanut allergies in our family we did a half-and-half sort of mixture.  After mixing together everything except the nuts and chocolate we separated half in one bowl and half in another.  We added 1 1/2 cups nuts to one bowl.  Instead of using 3 lbs. of white melting chocolate we use 1 lb.  It was very tasty!  I think the 3 lbs. would be too sweet.  It was the perfect mix of sweet and salty!
