I used my monster munch recipe from Halloween and tweaked it for St. Pat’s. I did 2/3 of the batch with green, and 1/3 in orange (The Irish flag is green, white, and orange). Next time I think I’ll do a darker orange, but you get the idea. And I switched out the Reese’s pieces for mini M and M’s since they were more like the colors of a rainbow. (And I would have used pretzel twists since they look more like shamrocks, but all I had was sticks).
This is so simple, quick, and easy to make- and everyone LOVES it! That’s a good combination in my book! : )
Recipe by My Stained Apron
14 oz candy coating or almond bark*
5 cups Chex (corn or rice)
1 cup peanuts
2 cups pretzels
1 cup mini M and M’s (or regular)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Mix together chex, peanuts, pretzels, and M and M’s in a large bowl.
Melt candy coating and pour over chex.
Stir quickly with a large spoon.
Sprinkle powdered sugar over chex and stir together.
Lay out on a large cookie sheet lined with wax paper to dry.
*You can do this in 2 batches if desired, using different colors for each batch. Then mix together after candy coating is set.
