Several weeks ago, I found these Eggnog Candy Melts at Walmart. I grabbed them, not knowing exactly what I would use them for, but knew I would come up with something great.

Although Christmas is over, it is still pretty chilly, and that means it is the perfect weather for eggnog. I love eggnog! I also love snack mixes! I decided these eggnog candy melts would be the perfect addition to this Christmasy chex mix. I added craisins, pistachios and mixed nuts to add some tart and salty elements so the sweet eggnog taste wasn’t overpowering. I also threw in some Mickey pretzels that we brought back from Disney, just for fun! Then I topped it off with red, white and green sprinkles to give it a little more of a holiday look. I think it turned out great, and my coworkers were crazy about it too!

5 Cups Rice Chex Cereal

2 Cups Pretzels

1 Cup Mixed Nuts (we used almonds, cashews, and pecans)

1/2 Cup Shelled Pistachios

1/3 Cup Craisins

1 Bag Wilton Eggnog Candy Melts

1/2 Jar Holiday Sprinkles


  1. Pour chex, pretzels, nuts, and craisins into a large mixing bowl, set aside.
  2. Pour bag of candy melts into a large microwavable coffee mug. Microwave on high in 15 second intervals, stirring, until completely melted and smooth when stirred.
  3. Pour melted candy melts over chex & nut mixture, stirring until coated evenly.
  4. Spread on a parchment paper lined pan or cookie sheet (I like using my lasagna pan so it stays contained).
  5. Pour on the sprinkles, as much as desired. Leave to set at least 1 hour or more (I let mine sit overnight inside my cold oven.
