Kerri’s Concoction Sweet Snack Mix

People ask me when I am going to make more of this sweet snack mix that is so simple. Kids love it. White chocolate, (any plain) cereals, nuts, pretzels, dried cranberries, and spices. You can use whatever dried fruit or plain cereals you prefer.

4 cups shredded wheat cereal biscuits
4 cups crispy rice cereal squares (such as Rice Chex®)
