Puppy Chow. Christmas Crack. Reindeer Munch. White Chocolate Chex Mix. I’ve seen many different names for this kind of snack mix over the year. It’s a popular item to make over the holidays. It’s one that you just cannot stop eating and is great to make in a large batch and gift. Another thing I love about this particular recipe is that it’s easy for kids to help with. Christmas Chex mix is something we all look forward to enjoying over the holidays.
Over the years I’ve added different items to this mix. This year, I let my little ones pick what they wanted in it. I have to say, they did a great job because it was delicious.
Making the mix is pretty simple. I always look for the almond bark or white candy coating that melts in the trays (included a picture below.) First, put all of the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Then pour the melted candy coating on top of the mixture. Gently stir/ mix to make sure everything is coated.
Place a sheet of parchment paper on top of a large baking sheet. After everything is mixed together, pour it onto the baking sheet and spread it out. Pour some festive sprinkles over the mixture to top it off. Allow it to dry for about an hour. Once completely dry, break apart and enjoy!
This is a great mix to put out at parties. You can also put it in little bags and tie a cute tag onto the bag. Sometimes the craft stores have the Chinese takeout boxes, this mix is great in those as well and it make a tasty little gift!
