servings

1
bag (8.75 oz) Chex Mix® Honey Nut snack mix
1/4
cup dried blueberries
1/4
cup dried cranberries
1/4
cup roasted sunflower seeds
2
cups white chocolate chips
1/2
cup blue and red candy-coated chocolate candies
  1. In a large bowl, combine the snack mix, blueberries, cranberries, and sunflower seeds.
  2. Place the white chocolate chips into a medium, microwave-safe bowl. Melt in the microwave on High for 60-90 seconds then stir. Melt for an additional 30-60 seconds, if needed.
  3. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the snack mix, and stir until well coated. Turn the mix out onto a large piece of wax paper, sprinkle with blue and red candies, then allow the white chocolate to stand at room temperature for about 1 hour to harden. To serve, break the mix up into large chunks.

Cute!  If you wanted to be lazy, you could just add the blue and red candies to chex mix to make it look patriotic too :) 

Can you tell I'm looking for shortcuts this year?! lol

 Cute idea. Unfortunately I do not like white chocolate. Maybe I could replace it with coconut or marshmellows.

 Great idea. You could also make your own with mini pretzels, gold fish, marshmellows, and red and blue candy.

Yep, definitely going to make this. I thought it was coconut when I looked at the picture but since its white chocolate then I'm in!
