ELF BAIT CHRISTMAS MIX RECIPE

This little Christmas mix is sometimes called “White Trash” which is basically a bunch of different sweet and salty snacks that are tossed in melted white chocolate. However, for Christmas, I thought it should have a slightly more, um, elevated name. So we’re going with Elf Bait here!

TIPS FOR MAKING THIS SWEET CHRISTMAS MIX:

  • Mini M&Ms can be added for more color, and, of course, for more chocolate!
  • Any combination of your favorite sweet cereal will work with this recipe.
  • When melting chocolate in the microwave, it’s helpful to melt at only 50% power to ensure the chocolate does not burn. You can add 1 tsp of oil if you want to have the chocolate to be thinner.
  • Using a couple of big spoons to coat the cereal with the chocolate allows you to do it while it is still warm to the touch and easier to spread. Just toss it quickly, like a salad.
  • By cooling the mixture in refrigerator for 20 minutes, it allows the chocolate to set faster but it’s not necessary if your house is cool enough.
  • Store the finished white chocolate mix in an airtight container or a ziploc bag. Keep it at room temperature or in the fridge. It should last for about 2 weeks if stored in an airtight container.
  • I do not recommend freezing this mix since it will not thaw at a good consistency.
