Monday - Martin Luther's Birthday - School's Out!

Want to make something with the grandkids since they are home today? It's from Rhonda.

Rhonda Rhodes at the Joy of Denim and Lace.

Christmas Trash

2 cups of Cheerios Cereal
2 cups Kix Cereal
2 cups of Corn Chex Cereal
2 cups of Rice Chex Cereal
2 cups of mini pretzels
1 < 12 oz > bag of red and green M&Ms
1 < 24 oz > bag of red and green peanut M&Ms
2 < 24oz > package of white almond bark

Mix cereals, pretezels, and candies in an extra large mixing bowl. Melt the white almond bark over low heat over stove or microwave.... Stir often
Spoon melted almond bark coating into the trash-mix, and stir until evenly coated. spoon out the wet mixture onto a flat surface such as cookie sheet or pieces of parchment paper and allow to harden.
Once the trash-mix has dried break up into small pieces.

Now this is something they can make - it is easy - and it is delicious.

Okay - it's not Christmas technically - but then again - isn't every day Christmas?

This looks fun and good!!!! I make something similar called Puppy Chow. Your pig is so cute, have you seen the new Geicko Weeee pig? I LOVE him!!

Melissa Ann Goodwin said...

Oh my goodness, I SO want to eat that! Love coming here for your inspiration - food and otherwise. Compassion is such an important thing, and that sweet piggy face is adorable.

Maple Lane said...

I think that sounds so delicious and I am hungry! I'll share this with my sis for her granddaughters, too.

Hope you have a restful evening and a great week!

Ann said...

hey it's close enough to Christmas to make it and besides, it would be a good idea to test the recipe out a few times before you make it for the actual holiday :)

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

I have grandcats, so won't be making this any time soon. I just don't think they'd care for it and then I'd have to eat it all. :)

GrammyK said...

I'm going to have to try this sometime!! :-) Looks pretty cool!! <3

Red Rose Alley said...

That looks yummy, Chatty. I did a Faith post today. Come and see it when you get a chance...I think you will like it. You know, I'm really getting excited about Valentine's Day! It's one of my favorite holidays of all, and your new Header reminds me of a Valentine. I love it!

Belle said...

Looks very yummy! Compassion is the greatest form of love. Great quote.

Michaele said...

I need to ponder on that thought for the day. Thanks Chatty.

Buttercup said...

I'd love that snack all year round. Had the day off, too. Loved the leisure, even if I did schedule a dental appointment.

Mevely317 said...

Forget the little kids ... I'm going to have to make up a batch while it's still (somewhat) chilly. What a delightful twist on the traditional recipe!!!

PS - Love your new header!

Love Of Quilts said...

The piggy got it right.

Rob-bear said...

Yup. Looks good. Just the thing a Bear needs before hibernation!

Jim said...

That looks wonderful, Sandy. I would leave the nuts and peanuts out but still good. A few raisins could sub.

I hope you enjoyed the holiday. Not much different here, every day is a Saturday or a holiday for retired people.

Of course I could have gone to the MLK Day parade in Houston. They always have one or two of those.
