Jan's Munchies

My friend Jan and I have often found the same recipes and we make a joke over who's name will claim it. It was tempting to call these Kathy's munchies but that just didn't seem right as this is Jan's claim to fame amongst our friends. Her and I call it '2 cups'...that makes it really easy to make as it is 2 cups of each ingredient. The only trouble would be if you forget what the ingredients are. There should be a warning on this recipe....
Be careful-once you start eating this you can't stop! Jan and I know...we have over indulged on this these.

In a large bowl mix the following together:
-2 cups Golden Grahams
-2 cups Cheerios
-2 cups pretzels
-2 cups salted shelled peanuts ( if you have a nut allergy leave out the peanuts and just add extra of the other 3 ingredients.

Place 2 cups of white chocolate wafers in a microwavable bowl. Melt stirring every 30-45 seconds. You do not want to over heat. Take out and stir when very small pieces still look hard. Stir well until very smooth and pour hot white chocolate over the dry ingredients.
Spread on wax paper lined baking sheets and allow to set in fridge until hardened. (about 15 minutes) Break into bite size pieces. Store in a large plastic container or ice cream bucket. Keep in the fridge or freezer.


  1. This is another must make now on my list. I had forgotten all about this type of goodie.

  2. This would be great for our family Chrismas get together. Thanks for the recipe.

  3. I will be making that for Christmas if at all possible.That is if I have time.

  4. oh yummy - can't wait to make it!

  5. Looks so good and easy! I love the sweet/salty flavors combined!

  6. If I make it, I'm using milk chocolate, since white chocolate & I don't get along so well. Other chocolate is a toss up, so we'll have to see. It looks really good though!

  7. Your recipes all look so delicious! Thanks for sharing them!

  8. I just love sweet and salty. . .I'll whip these up yet. .another quick recipe.

  12. I've made this recipe many times but I add Christmas M & M's to make it even more festive.

  13. This looks like something savory that makes me want to eat them right now...I think I will try those next time.
