Looking for something easy yet festive to make for the holidays? Try out our twist on classic Muddy Buddies: Reindeer Chow!
Wax or parchment paper
Large plastic bag
9 cups Chex Cereal (any variety will do)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup seasonal M&Ms
Pour cereal into a large mixing bowl. Next, prep a cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper, set aside.
Place chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cook for 1 minute and stir. If it’s not completely melted, put it back in for up to 30 seconds more. Once it’s melted, add vanilla and mix. Pour it over your Chex Cereal and mix with a spatula until well coated.
Take a large plastic Ziploc bag and place powdered sugar inside, then add chocolatey cereal. Close and begin to shake it up so that all the squares are evenly covered with sugar. Place the Reindeer Chow on the baking sheet and let it cool. Once you’re ready to serve, add holiday M&MS or other season candy and chow down!
