Recipe worth Sharing - Blizzard Pary Mix

While browsing on Taste of Home.com, I came across a recipe called Blizzard Party Mix. I thought it sounded good and decided to make it for a baby shower a few weeks ago. The shower seemed the perfect excuse to try it out. Anyway, it was a hit and we all thought it was pretty addictive. It only took about 15 minutes to make (including unwrapping the caramels and chopping them up). It would be a great snack for this weekend's big game so here it is for those interested.  I modified it just a bit - here's my version.
BLIZZARD PARTY MIX


Ingredients:
2 3/4 cups Corn Chex
2 3/4 cups miniature pretzels

1 1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts
1 pkg Kraft caramel bits or 40 caramels, coarsely chopped
2 package (12 oz.) vanilla or white chips

Directions:
In a large bowl, combine the first four ingredients. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chips; stir until smooth. (Only heat at 30 second intervals and stir after each so you don't burn the chips) Pour over cereal mixture and toss to coat. Immediately spread onto waxed paper-lined baking sheet; let stand until set, about 20 minutes. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 4 1/2 cups.

Enjoy!
