Recipe by Mama Carp…. Name of recipe by Joanne Pollock Kohler (sister) lol

Just in time for Easter- I was messing in the kitchen and this is what I came up with ❤

revised 2/11/2014

  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 3 Tablespoons light corn syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 oz. pretzel sticks ( I used ½ of an 8 oz. bag of gluten free pretzels by Glutino)
  • 1- 16 oz. jar of honey roasted peanuts
  • 1 -14.25 oz. box chocolate flavored Chex cereal (gluten free)
  • 1 cup Kraft Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits
  • 1- 12.60 oz. bag of “bunny mix” M&M’s
  • 1/8 cup reduced fat Skippy  creamy peanut butter
  • 8 oz.(1/2 package) of CandiQuik vanilla flavored chocolate

In a large plastic bowl- combine Chex cereal, pretzels and nuts; stir & set aside.

In a saucepan melt the first three ingredients together on stove- bring to a boil making sure that all the sugar has dissolved. Add baking soda and stir- mixture will be HOT! immediately pour over Chex mixture and stir well.  Microwave mixture for three minutes, stirring every minute. Line counter with wax paper and spread mix out to cool for a couple of minutes. Sprinkle generously with Kraft Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits & the M&M’s. Melt the white chocolate and peanut butter for approximately 2 minutes in the microwave, stirring halfway. Drizzle white chocolate/peanut butter mix on top of “HTGT” mixture. When hardened, break into pieces and place in bowl to serve. Also darling in individual treat bags with a ribbon & tag ❤ Take advantage of all the holiday M&M’s throughout the year and change up the nuts as well!! We make this for every gathering : )

  1. i am going to make this! Target is the only place that sells White Chocolate M&Ms, these would be great in this. Christmas time Target also has a White Chocolate Peppermint M&M for a minty treat!
