Chex Mix
Chef:  Donna Evans - Turpin, OK          Category:  Appetizers

1(12 oz) can mixed nuts
1(8 oz) bag plain M&M candies
19 (8oz) bag peanut M&M candies
1 (98oz) bag small pretzels
5 cups Cheerios cereal
5 cups Rice Chex cereal
1 (22-24 oz) package vanilla almond bark
3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions: Using a large container (the top of a heavy plastic angel food carrier works well), mix all ingredients except almond bark and oil. Place almond bark and vegetable oil in glass container, microwave on medium high until melted. Stir occasionally. Pour melted almond bark over dry ingredients and stir until coated. After the mixture has cooled, break in pieces. Store in zip lock bags.

Notes: Instead of using mixed nuts and M&M candies, I sometimes use purchased trail mix which includes raisins. Sometimes I substitute small butter crackers. This recipe makes nice gifts.
