I enjoy including my neighbors when I make Christmas goodies. This recipe for Reindeer Chow was a hit last year. It’s basically my favorite parts of a few different recipes for Puppy Chow and Monkey Mix combined with red and green M&M’s to make my own version of Reindeer Chow. I put it in cute little boxes from my local craft store, attached a poem (below) and had a perfect gift to leave for each of my neighbors.
Reindeer Chow Recipe
9 cups Chex Mix (rice)
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
3 cups mini marshmallows
½ cup peanut butter (or a bit more)
½ cup butter
1¾ cups powdered sugar
1 ½ cups pretzel sticks
1 bag red and green M&M’s
Mix the Chex Mix and marshmallows together in a big pan or on foil/wax paper spread out on the counter
Melt both kinds of chocolate chips, the butter and peanut butter
When the mixture is completely melted drizzle it over the dry ingredients. Continue to mix the chocolate in until all of the dry ingredients are covered with chocolate. Quickly add the powdered sugar while the chocolate is still warm.
Make sure the powdered sugar covers all of the chocolate so that the pieces do not stick together. Add the M&M’s once the mixture is all covered.
Place the Reindeer Chow into individual containers, add a gift tag and bow and you have a delicious treat to share.
Enjoy your Reindeer Chow.
