Mom’s White Chocolate Pretzel Mix

It seems most people have a preference on eating a sweet, or salty snack. But most people I have found, no matter which way they lean, love them both together. This is one of those sweet and salty snacks (maybe treat is a better word) that both children and adults will love. And there are two healthy cereal’s in here so it can’t be too bad for you right?? This version came from my Mom, who would always have a big bag of this waiting for us when we would visit. And unless you are making this for an Army, I would recommend cutting the recipe in half.

The below pictures are from when it was cooling. I forget to take any after it was broken apart.
