1 c Rice Chex-brand cereal
1 c pretzel twists, small
1⁄2 c dry-roasted peanuts
1⁄3 c sweetened dried cranberries (craisins)
1⁄3 c dried pineapple, coarsely chopped
1 c white chocolate chips
1 canning jar, quart-size with lid and ring
1 food storage bag, small

Layer cereal, pretzel twists, peanuts, cranberries and dried pineapple in a quart-sized canning jar.

Place white chocolate chips inside food storage bag, and place on top of layered ingredients.

Seal jar, and attach a free printable gift tag with preparation instructions.

Makes 3 1/2 cups snack mix.

To prepare:

Remove white chocolate chips from jar. Empty remaining jar contents into a large mixing bowl, and mix thoroughly.

Place white chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl. Melt white chocolate chips in the microwave for 30 seconds. Remove and stir until melted. If additional time is needed, check at 15 second intervals. (You may add 1 teaspoon solid shortening to thin chocolate mixture, if necessary.)

Pour melted white chocolate chips over snack mixture. Stir until snack mixture is evenly coated. Spread mixture in a single layer over waxed paper, and allow to cool completely.

Break mix into smaller pieces, and store in zipper food storage bags or an air-tight storage container.
