Coconut Easter Munch Mix

Pin It

For my first food post I thought it would be appropriate to share one of my favorite things: dessert 
varieties of Chex mix. Every time I make a batch I think, "Wow, I really made a lot. Surely it will get stale before we can finish this". 
Cut to me 10 minutes later. White chocolate covered fingers reaching into a half empty container of this delicious goodness. 
Needless to say, it never gets stale.




With Easter just a week away I wanted to come up with a festive snack for the occasion. I had just done some shopping and brought back coconut and easter m&m's. I had coconut and chex in my pantry and knew exactly what I wanted to make. If you love coconut and chocolate this is a "must make" for sure!

 Easter Munch Mix
by: Back for Seconds

  • 24 oz white chocolate 
  • 9 cups Chex cereal
  • 2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1 cup peanuts (or pretzels)
  • 1 1/2 cups plain m&m's (I used the Easter kind)
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut m&m's
Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave stirring after 30 second intervals until melted and smooth. In a large bowl mix together the chex, coconut, peanuts, an m&m's. Pour the melted chocolate over the mix and gently stir until everything is evenly covered in the white chocolate. Pour onto wax paper and let it cool for about 30 min. Break apart and store in a tightly sealed container.
