    Match Your Team Colors!

    GWEN MALINOWSKI from CHICAGO, IL

    We make this often to watch sporting events. Use candy coated chocolates to match your team's colors for your Super Bowl party! Delicious and festive at the same time!

    Great Treat

    Trina Zentko from BRAZIL, IN

    This snack was great. I make it and put it in little bags and tie with ribbons and put it as "little gifts" for my sons teachers. It is also good if you add candy coated chocolates to it.

    Yummy snack!

    Debbie from Westminster, CO

    I made this tasty treat to bring with me to Bunco and it was a hit! Everyone loved it, including my kids!! I will definitely be making this over and over again, especially with football season underway!

    Make it chocolate

    Julie Schauer from Redwood City, CA

    This is a very good snack recipe for when we have friends over and are sitting around having a cocktail and snacks. But, I made two batches, one with white morsels and one with semisweet chocolate morsels. Many prefer the white because it is sweeter, but most prefer the chocolate.

    Made it red, white, & blue

    Jan Wilkins from BLYTHEVILLE, AR

    This is our last day until after 4th of July, so we brought in "snackies". I brought this, only I divided the melted white morsels into 1/3's and used red food coloring in one, blue food coloring in another, and left one alone. Everyone enjoyed the "red, White, & Blue Party Mix"

  •  Star(s)

    Delicious!

    Sandra Kusz from TOLEDO, OH

    This is a delicious snack food; I could make a meal out of it. The only problem I had was melting the morsels in the microwave. I ended up adding some melted shortening in order to make a more fluid mixture to pour over the other ingredients.

    Fun and Easy

    michelle schroyer from Malta, IL

    Loved this recipe, so easy we experimented with various candies, nuts and dried fruits, we loved dried cherries, and for added flavor used cherry flavored oil to part of the white chocolate with red candy melts and drizzled over all for a fancy look.Big hit, would be great for Valentines Day gifts

  •  Star(s)

    Addictive

    CHRISTINA GRUTZIUS from PLAINFIELD, IL

    This was a huge hit. We made enough to fill four gallon zipper bags. When taken to work, it disappeared! We added dried cranberries, dried cherries, and a little bit of candy coated chocolate and it was marvelous.

    Tasty Party treat

    Gilda Rogers from

    I like colorful display of foods. The white chocolate made a delicious contrast to other party foods I served. I agree, you don't need to wait for a party to make!

    Kristy Lauer from RUBY, MI

    This was fast, fun, easy, the kids just loved helping and it went over fantastic! I suggest making a double batch because it disappears fast! PS: I also tried substituting cheerios and candy coated chocolates in place of the caramels to the mix...it was awesome!

    Great Teacher Gift

    Penny Cobb from BAILEY, NC

    I made several batches of this for my kid's teachers. No complaints, no returns on that gift. Not too sweet, not too salty. Just right!

    Blizzard Party Mix

    Nancy Campbell from CEDAR SPRINGS, MI

    This has to be one of the easiest recipes around! I made it for Thanksgiving and now my husband wants me to make it every time he runs out of this snack! I used cashews in place of peanuts. I also put the unwrapped caramels in the microwave for 10 seconds. This softens them just enough to snip with scissors.Knives are hard to use when cutting up the caramels.

    Blizzard Party Mix

    Piper Lashbrook from JACKSONVILLE, FL

    This is a super easy recipe to make with your kids. My 11-year-old son even made a batch by himself. We substituted candy coated chocolate candies for the caramels and crispy chow mein noodles for the peanuts. It was one of the most complimented items in my Christmas gift tins this year!

    Gone in 60 Seconds...

    STACY TAPLEY from PLANO, TX

    I made this treat for my Christmas gift basket although they did not quite make it in the baskets. My husband and I ate the entire batch in one evening. Absolutely fabulous to eat and easy to make!

    Blizzard Party Mix

    Roxanne Jenkins from MILTON FREEWATER, OR

    I just made this for Christmas goodies, made 2 versions and both of them are wonderful! I used dried cranberries and dried cherries, used mixed nuts too, tried the chips but like the white candy coating better.I cut up the caramels in half in one batch and used candy coated chocolates for the other. Hubby loves this one better than chex mix.

  •  Star(s)

    Blizzard Mix

    Shalene Kerere from Reedsville, WV

    We love this treat. It is also good for individual snack bags (i.e parties). I do not use the caramels, though. Instead, I use plain candy coated chocolates...& if it is a holiday, I use the holiday colored ones. That makes it especially colorful at your party or the kid's party.

    Great Gift

    Dusty Buttram from Haysville, KS

    I put a bag of this in with a "Teacher Goodie Basket" and it was a big hit! I was asked to make a big batch of it for snacking during teachers meetings last fall they all loved it!

    Blizzard Party Mix

    Pat Gardetta from OSAGE BEACH, MO

    Football season is over but this recipe stays on! I make it with white chocolate one time and semi-sweet chocolate the next. Either way it's a great snack. My advise - Double the recipe.

    Blizzard Party mix

    Linda Jenkins from LITTLE RIVER, SC

    I thought this was very good but a little sweet. One question....one of the reviews said they used sauce instead of the caramels. I too used the sauce because I thought the caramels would be horrible to cut. Not sure if I used too much, although I used a cup (probably should have been less since it was liquid!!), and my mix is a little sticky. How much sauce would you use and was any of yours sticky? I would like to make it again and have it come out better. The taste is wonderful!!! any suggestions on cutting the caramels??

    I had a party at the kids school and the parents really liked it. The only complaint was "Where's the chocolate?" I made another batch at home with semi-sweet chocolate instead and the teachers loved it.

    Blizzard Party mix

    Susan Kohl from Mountain Home, AR

    I found that cutting caramels was not easy but very tasty. I used caramel ice cream topping instead and added some milk chocolate chips right after I oven toasted the cereal. Then I followed the rest of the recipe. It was gooie good!

    Valentine's Goodies

    Sandy Williams from NORTH MANCHESTER, IN

    Bethany Heide from TINLEY PARK, IL

    This was so easy to make for a quick snack! My family prefers semi-sweet chocolate so like another reviewer, that's what we substituted as well. This recipe is also flexible enough to allow other changes like nuts, other cereals and raisins or dried fruit.
