Golden Grahams Mix

Can you believe there are only 39 days until Christmas?!?  I'm so excited!! 

Since we are so close to the holidays, I thought I'd start sharing some of my favorite holiday recipes with ya all.

This is a new favorite and I don't really have an actual recipe for this one.   I have no idea what it's called so I'm just going to call it Golden Grahams Mix.  I went into the lounge at work one day and it was there.  I decided I'd make it at home that weekend so Dave could try it too.

What you need:
White almond bark - 1 lb.
Golden Grahams cereal - 1 box
Salted peanuts - 1 jar
Mixed nuts -small can
Pretzels - 1 bag

So, since I don't have a recipe this is what I did:
Melted half of the 1 lb bar of white almond bark in a 6 quart pot (I think that's the size I used).
Once melted, I dumped in a few cups of cereal, a couple handfuls of peanuts, about 1/4 of the can of mixed nuts, and a handful or so of pretzels.

Then I just mixed it all together until everything was pretty well covered.  Next, I dumped it out onto a parchment paper covered cookie sheet.  I stuck in the cookie sheet in the fridge while I did the next batch.  Once the almond bark was hard, I just broke it into pieces then put it in a bowl.

I know, not real exact but you could really alter this anyway you want.  More cereal and less nuts, more nuts and no pretzels, etc.  It's so easy and really good.

If know or have a name for this let me know!  :o)

You are going to laugh...I've heard this called Crack, or White Trash Snack Mix. I know, weird. I had some last year and LOVED it. That would be great to make and wrap up for gifts! YUM!

Looking forward to seeing more recipes! :)
