10 Days 'Til Christmas!!

Hey Everyone! It's officially less than one week until Christmas even though my poor countdown is working overtime. We're getting there! My recipe posts have begun so here we go!

4 cups Rice Chex
4 Cups Corn Chex
1 cup pretzels
1 1/2 cups Mixed Nuts
1 cup Bittersweet Chocolate Morsels (optional)
