Warning, this is super addicting stuff right here! On one of my recent road trips, I saw a Rice Krispies “Crunch Mix” in a gas station. “Duh, I can totally make this,” I thought. It’s so easy!
The best thing about this Rice Krispies snack mix is that you can add whatever you want! I think this is an easy-to-do gift or snack for any party. What are your favorite snack mixes?
Start by making a batch of Rice Krispies treats. I followed the original recipe from Rice Krispies. I added some sprinkles to my batter, which ended up making them a little pink in color; I loved it!
Let the Rice Krispies cool and set; then cut them into squares. I let mine sit for about 30 minutes. I took the squares and cut them into even smaller pieces and rolled them into tiny bite-sized balls.
Then you add the good stuff. I added Flipz white chocolate covered pretzels, M&Ms, chocolate covered almonds, and mini Teddy Grahams. The mini Teddy Grahams were so stinking cute!
I wanted to make some red chocolate covered pretzels for the snack mix too. I can’t seem to get enough chocolate covered pretzels these days! These are very easy to make. You will need:
½ Bag of candy melts
1 tbsp Crisco
2 C Pretzels
- In a microwave safe bowl, combine your candy melts and Crisco. Melt for 30 seconds and stir. Microwave for another 20-30 seconds and stir until well melted.
- Pour 1 cup of pretzels into your chocolate a stir. Use a toothpick or folk to pick your pretzels out, and lightly tap on the side of the bowl remove excess chocolate.
- Set on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and allow to cool.
- Repeat with a second cup of pretzels.
Combine all your ingredients together and dig in! I will tell you though that it is dangerous to leave an open bag of this laying around!
