White Chocolate Gorp

This is one of those recipes that is totally customizable to whatever you like or have on hand. I made some around Christmas and more recently, I made a half-batch the other day to take to a friend's house. Kids adore this stuff...and grown-ups enjoy it just as much.

2 lbs white chocolate (almond bark is perfect, or you can use white chocolate chips, with a couple tablespoons of shortening added)
6 cups crispy cereal squares (Crispix, Rice or Corn Chex)
3 cups Cherrios
2 cups pretzel sticks or mini-twists
2 cups cashews, peanuts, pecans, or whatever mixture of nuts you like
12 oz. mini or regular M&Ms
1-2 cups raisins or dried cranberries or cherries (optional)

Melt chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave.
Combine all the other ingredients in a large roaster pan or bowl.
Pour chocolate over mixture and stir gently to coat everything evenly.
Turn out onto wax paper to cool/dry.

Isn't that easy? And it's so totally munchable. It makes a ton, too.


  1. I just found this recipe on all and made it today. My question is how do you keep the m and m's from melting? Mine tastes good but it turned brown from all the melted m and m's.

  2. Sallie,
    I'm not really sure, actually! I never had a problem with the m and m's melting....but you could just try stirring them in after you coat everything with the white chocolate. It's not like the m and m's need a chocolate coating anyways! The white chocolate would be cooler and probably wouldn't melt them that way. Thanks for writing, and good luck!
