Christmas crunch snack mix

I love trying to come up with new things at the holidays... along with our old favorites...
I was looking for something new to add to our holiday Christmas tins that I am giving out full of goodies.... and this was exactly what I was looking for...sweet, yummy and full of good things... you can switch out things or add what you like... for example: use milk chocolate instead of white, add crushed pretzels instead of coconut... use what you like and have... and thought this might be a favorite at other holidays just use the colored M & M's from that time, like pastel ones for Easter, Orange and black ones for Halloween... you get the idea.. whatever you do make this, it is delicious.. Enjoy

Christmas crunch snack mix

2 cups Rice chex cereal (or crispix, or use your favorite cereal)
1 package white chocolate chips
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 cup red & green plain M & M's

In a double boiler add white chocolate heating and stirring occasionally till smooth and melted.  While the chocolate is melting, in a large bowl add the Rice chex, coconut, & almonds  mixing to combine.  When chocolate is melted pour evenly over cereal mixture.  Fold in M & M's stirring to coat well.  Spread mixture out on waxed paper to cool.  When cool break apart and store in an airtight container.  Enjoy
