Christmas Crunch Mix Ingredients

How to Make Christmas Crunch Mix

In a large bowl, combine the Chex cereal, Cheerios, pretzels and peanuts.

In a microwave safe bowl or the container the candy coating comes in, melt the candy coating according to package directions, usually 90 seconds to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 second interval until melted and smooth. Be sure not to over melt the candy coating as it will burn and become too thick to stir and coat the mix evenly. Pour the melted candy coating over the ingredients in the large bowl and toss to coat with a large spoon. Ingredients should be evenly coated in the candy coating.

Spread the mixture out in an even layer on a parchment paper covered sheet pan. Immediately sprinkle with the sprinkles and then the M&M’s. Lay gingermen cookies evenly across mixture. You can find mini ginger men cookies at Target, Kroger or Walmart. I have also used these I found on Amazon.

Allow mixture to cool completely. Break apart to serve. Store in an airtight container or baggie at room temperature.

The combination of flavors and textures is so satisfying and slightly addicting. I love the addition of the mini gingerbread men cookies because they give the mix that ginger cookie flavor that’s so specific to the holiday season. And they’re just so darn cute too!

  2. Made this tonight. So yummy!! I couldn’t find the mini gingerbread men cookies so we substituted Teddy Grahams instead. Thanks for
    a great recipe!! ????

    1. Hi Dan! I use lightly salted peanuts for the salty/sweet combo, but you could use either since they’re being coated in the candy coating. Enjoy!

  3. The gingerman minis are impossible to find. They didn’t have them at all in Ohio ???????? I’m going to keep looking. Not in any Target’s up here
