  • 3 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 4 cups multigrain Cheerios
  • 4 cups rice Chex cereal
  • 2 cups pretzel sticks
  • 1 cup roasted cashews, optional
  • 1 9 ounce bag peanut butter m&m eggs
  • 1 cup pastel milk chocolate m&m’s
  • ½ cup shredded, sweetened coconut
  • extra white chocolate chips, for topping


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the white chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each, until the chocolate is melted.
  • Note: if you don’t have coconut oil, you can leave it out. I find that it makes the white chocolate firm up a bit more, but it’s not 100% necessary!
  • Mix the Cherrios, Chex, pretzel sticks and cashews on the baking sheet. Toss them gently. Add on half of each version of m&m’s. Drizzle the mixture all over with the white chocolate. Use a spatula or large spoon to gently (and somewhat quickly) toss the mix together, until all of the pieces are coated. Sprinkle in the remaining m&m’s and gently toss once more. If desired, sprinkle the entire sheet with the shredded coconut. You can also sprinkle on more white chocolate chips if you wish!
  • Let the mixture set for 20 to 30 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl or jar that you can cover or a resalable plastic bag. You can definitely make this a day or two ahead of time!
