  • 2 cups corn Chex or similar crispy cereal
  • 1 cup miniature pretzel twists
  • 1 and 1/2 cups Lucky Charms cereal
  • 1/2 cup Lucky Charms marshmallows (pick out of cereal)
  • 3/4 cup green M&M's, or other candy-coated chocolate, divided
  • 1 bag (11 ounces) white chocolate chips
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil


  • Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine corn Chex, pretzels, Lucky Charms, Lucky Charms marshmallows, and 1/2 cup of the green M&M's.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, add the white chocolate chips and vegetable oil. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and microwave for another 25 seconds. Stir until melted and smooth. If necessary, return to the microwave for a little longer. (Use bursts of 10 seconds stirring for 10 seconds in between each burst). Pour the melted and smooth white chocolate over the snack mix.
  • Gently stir until completely combined and then transfer to the prepared baking sheet and spread into one even layer. Add remaining 1/4 cup M&Ms on top.
  • Allow to harden at room temperature or place in the fridge until firm, about 10-20 minutes. Break into pieces and serve or fill plastic bags and attach the free printable (link to printable above this recipe).
