Making Reindeer Snack Mix is Easy!
Once you’ve melted the chocolate and peanut butter, add in the cocoa and sugar and spread it out on parchment paper. Allow it to cool completely before adding the remaining ingredients.
While it’s cooling, chop up an assortment of candy bars into small pieces. I used Snickers Bars, Twix, and Kit Kat, but any of your favorite candy bars would be good to use.
Reindeer Snack Mix
A delicious snack full of flavor that's perfect for the holidays
- 6 Cups Chex Rice Cereal
- 1 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
- 1/2 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
- 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
- 2 TBS Cocoa Powder
- 11.4 oz bag Holiday M&Ms
- 12 Fun Sized 4 each – Snickers, Twix, and Kit Kat Bars (chopped)
- 2 Cups Pretzels
Add chocolate morsels and peanut butter to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave at 30 second intervals until it's melted. Stir.
Add cereal to a large bowl. Add in the melted mixture. Stir to coat the cereal.
In a separate bowl, combine cocoa and sugar. Add to cereal mixture.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread mixture out in a single layer. Allow it to cool completely, about an hour.
Chop the candy bars into small pieces.
Once the mixture has cooled, return it to a large bowl, add in candy bars and pretzels. Stir to combine.
Store in an airtight container.
After it’s cool, return the mixture to a large mixing bowl and add in the candy bars, M&Ms, and pretzels. Stir to mix it all together.
This is great for putting in gift bags or in a holiday container. Include the printable recipe card along with the snack mix.
