Olympic Village Snow White Chocolate Party Mix

Years ago I tried this recipe from Taste of Home and it has been a holiday and anytime favorite ever since, though in humid summer places it does not work out so well.

We have many variations, and currently we are using bright, Olympic colored m&m's and adding 5 cups Rice Chex and 3 cups mini-marshmallows. I just had to have easy access to this recipe. Happy Winter Olympics, 2010!

White Chocolate Party Mix
15 Servings Prep/Total Time: 30 min.

5 cups Cheerios
5 cups Corn Chex
2 cups salted peanuts (optional)
1 pound chocolate M&M's
1 package (10 ounces) mini pretzels
2 packages (12 ounces (each) vanilla chips
3 tablespoons oil

In a large bowl, combine first five ingredients; set aside. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat chips and oil at 70% power for 1 minute, stirring once. Microwave on high for 5 seconds; stir until smooth. Pour over cereal mixture and mix well. Spread onto three waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Cool; break apart. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 5 quarts.
