  • Spread out a large piece of parchment paper out onto the counter or onto a baking sheet.
  • Toss together cereal, pretzels and m&ms in a very large bowl.

  • Using a wooden spoon or a spatula, drizzle melted white chocolate all over cereal, candy pretzel mix and toss until everything is completely coated.
  • Turn mixture out onto parchment and spread into an even later. Let harden for about 30-40 minutes.
  • Break up into chunks and store in an airtight container!
