white chocolate party mix

If you are like me, you’ve been busy shopping, decorating, and wrapping…oh, and tending to the usual household tasks, along with taking care of three busy kids.  For some reason, I always leave the baking to the end of our holiday preparations.  Maybe it’s because we really don’t need more sweets this time of the year!

However when I’m short on time, this recipe for white chocolate party mix is my go-to.
