  • 3 cups (30 g) popped popcorn
  • 4 cups (108 g) Rice Chex cereal or similar product
  • 1 cup (64 g) pretzel twists
  • 1/2 cup (70 g) roasted cashews
  • 2/3 cup (173 g) peanut butter or your favorite nut or seed butter
  • 3 tablespoons (42 g) salted butter
  • 2-3 tablespoons (20-30 g) holiday sprinkles
  • 2 cups (240 g) powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup (150 g) red and green M&M's


  • Place the popcorn, cereal, pretzels and cashews into a gallon-size (3.8 L) resealable plastic bag. Set aside.
  • Place the peanut butter and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat on high for 20 seconds and use oven mitts to remove the bowl for stirring. Continue to heat in 20-second sessions and stir until the mixture is melted and smooth.
  • Pour the peanut butter mixture over the popcorn mixture, seal the bag and gently shake to coat everything in peanut butter.
  • Open the bag and add a few tablespoons (20 to 30 g) of sprinkles, seal the bag and shake again.
  • Open the bag and add the powdered sugar, seal the bag and shake again.
  • Pour the snack mixture into a serving bowl and gently stir in the M&M's.
