In October I discovered this amazing snack mix recipe that left me addicted to Reese’s Pieces. I did my best to wean myself off of it, but I resurrected the recipe this month and gave it a Christmas twist. Now I am addicted again! But this time to classic M&Ms. Here is the ultimate addictive party mix your friends will simply adore and you won’t be able to get enough of this holiday season. Try adding nearly any Christmas candy you want to give it your own twist!

1. Preheat oven to 275F. Line a small baking sheet and set aside.
2. Melt the butter and pour it into a large bowl. Stir in the sugars and milk powder until fully combined. Stir in the pretzels and spread them on a lined baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes until light brown and fragrant.
3. Allow the pretzels to cool completely before breaking them apart and adding them to a small bowl and tossing them wit the M&M’s. Serve.
