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.
