Ingredients
  • 4 cups Mini Trix Cereal
  • 1 cup vanilla wafer cookies
  • 1 cup chocolate wafer cookies
  • 4 cups pretzel sticks
  • 4 cups popcorn plain or coloured
  • 1 cup M&M candies or any candies you enjoy
  • 1/2 cup blue candy melts
  • 1/2 cup red candy melts
  • 1/2 cup green candy melts
  • 1/2 cup confetti candy melts
  • 3 ounces white chocolate
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil divided
Instructions
  1. Line 4 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Spread Mini Trix cereal onto one cookie sheet. Set aside.
  3. Spread chocolate wafer cookies onto one cookie sheet. Set aside.
  4. Spread vanilla wafer cookies onto one cookie sheet. Set aside
  5. Place pretzels in a large bowl near the last cookie sheet. Set aside.
  6. In a small bowl melt the white chocolate in the microwave for about 1 minute. Check after 30 seconds, then keep checking every 15 seconds after. Mix until smooth and completed melted. Drizzle over the chocolate and vanilla wafer cookies randomly. There's no right or wrong way to do it. Allow to cool.
  7. In a small bowl combine blue candy melts and 1 and 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Place bowl in the microwave and cook for about 1 minutes, checking every 15 seconds to make sure it's melting correctly. Mix with a spoon until it's smooth. Once it's smooth transfer it to a tiny cup (egg cup or shot glasses work great) so you can dunk the pretzels into it. Dunk each pretzel into the melts so it comes up 3/4 of the way up the pretzel. This will make them look like lightsabers from the Star Wars movies. Make sure to tap each pretzel to remove excess coating. Lay each pretzel on a cookie sheet to allow the coating to set up.
  8. Repeat the process with the red candy melts.
  9. Then repeat the process with the green candy melts.
  10. In a small bowl combine the confetti candy melts and 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Place bowl in the microwave and cook for about 1 minute, checking every 15 seconds to make sure it's melting correctly. Mix with a spoon until it's smooth. Once it's smooth drizzle it over top of the Mini Trix cereal in random fashion. There's no right or wrong way to do it. The purpose is to make the Mini Trix cereal clump like granola pieces. Once you finish drizzling, allow the candy coating to cool completely. Then you can break the mixture into small pieces.
  11. I used coloured popcorn in this recipe. If you don't have coloured popcorn you can make your own, or use plain popcorn. It works just as well. Or you can coat plain popcorn with white chocolate and sprinkles if you like. Get creative and have fun with it.
  12. Now wait for everything to cool and all the candy coatings to harden. Once that happens you can toss everything together in a giant bowl. Carefully mix it together so you don't break any pieces. Toss in some M&M candies for added crunch and a hint of chocolate with each bite of Jedi snack mix.
  13. Store in an air tight container. If it lasts that long.
  14. Serve with a big Mini Trix Cereal Jedi Snack Mix with Lightsaber Pretzels loving smile!
  15. May the force be with you!!
