2 pounds almond bark/white candy coating
3 cups Captain Crunch's Peanut Butter Crunch cereal
3 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
3 cups (small) pretzel sticks, broken in halves or thirds
1-2 cups colored M&M candies (red and green for Christmas)
Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment or wax paper; set aside.
Melt almond bark according to package directions (in a microwave or double boiler).
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.
Drizzle the melted almond bark over the mixture, then stir quickly, but carefully - so as not to break or crush the "sticks and stones" until all are well coated.
Using 2 spoons, drop and shape the mixture into approximately golf ball-sized mounds onto the prepared baking sheets.
Refrigerate until firm.
Store in an airtight container.
