1 package (24 ounces) roasted peanuts
1 package (19.6 ounces) Golden Grahams cereal
1 package (15 ounces) raisins
1/2 cup butter, cubed
12 ounces white candy coating, coarsely chopped
2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 package (2 pounds) confectioners' sugar
2-1/2 cups red and green milk chocolate M&M's
1. In a large bowl, combine the peanuts, cereal and raisins. In a microwave, melt the butter, candy coating and peanut butter; stir until smooth. Pour over cereal mixture and toss to coat.
2. Working in batches, place sugar in a large bag; add coated mixture. Close bag and shake to coat. Spread onto baking sheets; sprinkle with M&M's. When cool, store in airtight containers.
Chock-full of raisins, peanuts and M& M's, this crunchy salty-sweet mix stays fresh for weeks. I keep it on hand to serve to unexpected guests or to fill decorative containers to give as last-minute gifts.
