Updated Sep 30, 2020

Ingredients

  • 6 cups Rice Chex™ cereal
  • 1 cup cocktail peanuts
  • 1 bag (12 oz) white vanilla baking chips
  • 1/4 cup red candy sprinkles
  • 1 1/2 cups red candy-coated chocolate candies

Steps

  • 1
    Line large rimmed pan with waxed paper. In large bowl, add cereal and peanuts.
  • 2
    In medium microwavable bowl, microwave white vanilla baking chips uncovered on High 45 seconds; stir. Continue microwaving and stirring in 15-second increments, until chips are melted and smooth. Pour over cereal and peanuts; mix to coat. Spread mixture in pan; immediately top with sprinkles. Cool about 30 minutes or until set.
  • 3
    Gently break up coated cereal mixture into bite-size pieces, and place in large bowl. Toss in chocolate candies. Store covered at room temperature.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Make the snack mix even more red by using red nonpareils instead of red candy sprinkles.
  • tip 2
    Because microwave ovens vary, carefully watch when melting white vanilla baking chips to avoid burning.
