Every Thursday night I get to be a part of 30 to 50 you adults and leaders, where we share dinner, hang out and talk about life. It’s literally the best night of my week. Each week we pick a theme for the food, Mexican, Salad Bar, etc. Last night we had to bring food that starts with the same letter as your first or last name.
Even though it was my idea, I had no idea what to bring. Kiwi’s? Garden Salad? Kale Chips? Green Beans? I spent a couple days wishing my Kathy started with a C, chicken is just so easy…
Then yesterday morning it dawned on me – GORP! Good Old Raisin’s & Peanuts. A Girl Scout favorite.
I found a fun recipe on AllRecipes.com and revised it a little.
6 c Rice Chex cereal
3 c pretzel sticks
1 c raw almonds
1 c dry roasted peanuts
1 c craisins
1 c dark chocolate M&M’s
12 oz white chocolate
In a LARGE bowl, mix cereal through the M&M’s.
In a microwave safe bowl; melt the white chocolate – 1 min at a time, until smooth.
Pour the white chocolate over the cereal mix 1/3 cup at a time and mix until all pieces are coated.
Turn out onto a large piece of parchment or wax paper until cooled.
Put the whole mix back in a giant, brightly colored bowl and enjoy!
