This BROOKSIDE Party Mix is great for an everyday snack but pretty enough to take to your next evening at friends. Make it today!
Place 2-1/4 cups (550 mL) cereal in each of two large mixing bowls; set aside. Line two large trays or cookie sheets with wax paper.
Place white creme chips and 2 tbsps (30 mL) butter in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 30 seconds; stir. If necessary, microwave at MEDIUM an additional 10 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Stir in 1/4 tsp (1 mL) vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal in one bowl; stir until cereal is evenly coated. Pour cereal mixture into large resealable food storage plastic bag.
Add 6 tbsps (90 mL) powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until cereal is well coated. Spread cereal mixture on prepared tray. Cool completely.
Repeat procedure with chocolate chips using remaining cereal, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar.
Stir together cooled cereal mixtures, chocolate pieces, almonds and dried cranberries. Store in a dry, cool place.
