Cookie Week {Day 5}: White Chocolate Snack Mix Recipe

Ok, this is obviously not a cookie, per say, but it DOES make it into my Christmas cookie gifts every year. I strategically place these scrumptious little “clumps” of  sweet N’ salty goodness all over my cookie trays.

As well as being a fantastic addition to Christmas cookie trays, it’s perfect for bagging up as party favors, serving as party snacks, and  just keeping on hand for the occasional droppers by. You can change the colors of the M&M’s for different seasons and holidays, and trust me….it’s delicious.  It has been well loved by children and adults alike. Not only do my kids go crazy over it, but my Grandma absolutely love it, too!  Have I convinced you yet?
