It comes together in under 5 minutes in a single bowl making clean up a breeze. It will last up to 1 week when stored properly making it the perfect make ahead treat for your summer party.

What you'll need:

  • Chex Cereal - I used corn Chex but wheat, rice or even honey nut will work.

  • Pretzels - Mini twists, snaps or rods.

  • Cheerios - I like to use regular but honey nut is also delicious.

  • Peanuts - You may choose to leave the peanuts out or substitute another nut of your choosing.

  • Almond Bark - I prefer the vanilla flavor and melting of almond bark but white chocolate chips will also work.

  • M&Ms - I used plain M&Ms but I also love peanut M&Ms, mini M&Ms or peanut butter if you can find them. Be sure to choose patriotic colored.

  • Sprinkles - Don't be shy to add lots of sprinkles! Use one or a variety for lots of red, white and blue.
