Salty meets sweet as cereal, pretzels and peanuts get a coating of melted white baking pieces. Package this gift from the kitchen in boxes that resemble takeout containers.


  • 3 cups bite-size rice square cereal
  • 3 cups bite-size corn square cereal
  • 1 cup small pretzel twists or pretzel sticks
  • 1 cup honey-roasted peanuts
  • 2 12 - ounce packages white baking pieces
  • 1 12 - ounce package mint-flavored candy-coated milk chocolate pieces


  1. In a very large bowl combine cereals, pretzels and peanuts; set aside.
  2. Melt baking pieces according to package directions. Pour melted chocolate over cereal mixture. Stir gently to coat. Spread on a large piece of waxed paper or parchment paper. Sprinkle with chocolate pieces. Cool and break into pieces. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week or in the freezer for 1 month. Makes 16 cups.

I do not understand what 1 24 oz - 12 white baking pieces means - a 24 oz or a 12 oz pkg. Please clarify. Thanks.

pjs1232, when I view the recipe, it says: two, 12 ounce packages of white baking pieces. The total weight of the white baking pieces would be 24 ounces total. Does that help?

Can you tell me what white baking pieces are? Are they white chocolate chips? White almond bark? Thanks!

Hello! Midwest Living food editor Hannah here. "White baking pieces" is the generic term we use in our recipes to refer to white chocolate chips you'd find in the baking aisle, but white almond bark would probably work too. Whatever your preference is. Thanks!
