Pretzel Cereal Crunch Recipe

A festive container of this salty-sweet treat was left in my mailbox several Christmases ago—and disappeared in a twinkling! My neighbor shared the quick and easy recipe. I've since added peanut butter because I love that flavor! —Cindy Lund, Valley Center, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:18 servings


  • 1-1/4 cups Golden Grahams

  • 1-1/4 cups miniature pretzels
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1 package (10 to 12 ounces) white baking chips
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the cereals, pretzels and pecans. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chips; stir until smooth. Stir in peanut butter. Drizzle over cereal mixture; toss to coat. Spread evenly on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Cool completely; break into pieces. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 9 cups.

"Try using 2 tablespoons of veg oil when you melt the chips. For peanut free, don't add the nuts or the peanut butter."

"This was very good! Next time I would use honey nut cheerios instead of the apple cinnamon. Oh, I also added ~1.5 cups of marshmallows and 1.5 bags of white chips to accommodate them."
