It’s easy to infuse your dessert with America’s proudest colors. For a quick, sweet snack, spike your favorite Chex mix or cereal/trail mix with stripes of melted white chocolate and red and blue candies.


  • 1 15-ounce package frosted cereal or sweet and salty snack mix, like Sweet ‘n Salty Honey Nut Chex Mix
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 cups lightly salted popcorn, popped
  • 4 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup red M&Ms
  • 1 cup blue M&Ms


  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper. In a large bowl, combine cereal or Chex Mix, raisins and popcorn. Microwave white chocolate chips on high for 90 seconds, adding additional 30-second increments, if needed, until chocolate is melted through. Pour melted chocolate over the snack mix, stirring until coated. Pour mixture onto wax paper and top with red and blue M&Ms. Let entire mixture cool, then break into snack-size pieces for serving.
