Christmas Crunch - Festive Vanilla Popcorn Mix

This sweet and salty Christmas Treat is an easy holiday snack made with popcorn, pretzels, cherrios cereal, white chocolate and m&m candies. 

This popcorn mix is my number 1 treat to make during the holidays. Last year for 4th of July I made Patriotic Popcorn and for Easter it's always Easter Bunny Munch MixI thought it was only fitting to make a Christmas themed popcorn, so yesterday I tossed together a Christmas Crunch MixChristmas Crunch is perfect to put into cute holiday themed bags to give to teachers, friends and great for parties.

I was in charge of treats for Carson's Cub Scout Christmas party, so I thought this popcorn mix along with some cookie bars would be fitting. I like to add peanuts from time to time, but one of the kids has a peanut allergy. When that issue comes up I usually just substitute with plain Cheerios. 

This snack is always a huge hit with all the kids as well as with the adults. Everyone thinks it's hard to make, but literally it takes only about 10 minutes to throw together. 
Once the popcorn mix set up I added it to festive party bags and added a candy cane to each one. 

Christmas Crunch also fits perfectly into Christmas tins with pretty tissue paper.  If you're looking for a last minute treat idea I think you'll love this recipe.

YUMMY! YUMMY! I make something similar...with cereal. I think this is an awesome way to use up the 'last' of ingredients like this that I have on hand. Thanks so much for sharing.
