Reindeer Chow Recipe

This is MY FAVORITE Christmas Baking Recipe. This will be my fourth year making it.

Reindeer Chow

5 cups Honeycombs Cereal

2 cups Thin Pretzel Sticks (broken in half)

1/2 cup Butter

1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter

1 (11.5-ounce) package (1 1/2 cups) Real Milk Chocolate Chips

1 cup Powdered Sugar

1 cup red and green M & M s

Combine cereal and pretzels in a 4-quart bowl; set aside.

Place butter, peanut butter and chocolate chips in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 45 seconds; stir. Continue microwaving until butter and chocolate are melted (15 to 45 seconds). Stir until smooth.

Immediately pour chocolate mixture over cereal in bowl; stir until well coated. Spread mixture evenly into a single layer on two waxed paper-lined cookie sheets.

Refrigerate 20 minutes to set.

Break into bite-size pieces; place half of mixture into two 1-gallon size resealable plastic food bags.

Pour 1/2 cup powdered sugar into each bag; close bags. Shake bags until mixture is well coated. Place 1/2 cup candies in each bag.

Store in sealed bags or airtight container in refrigerator up to 4 weeks.

Makes 9 to 12 cups.

Christmas Baking

Every December, I always take an entire day and bake Christmas Goodies. I have made my list of what I am going to make. I can't wait, this is one of my favorite days of the year. I usually have my baking session towards the beginning of December, but since I am getting to spend two weeks after the kids get out of school in Mobile with my family, I am going to wait until we get down there to do it. We are not going down there until the week of the 20th, but I have my list and am ready to go!

Chewy White Macadamia Nut Cookies
Chocolate Snowball Cookies

Isabella FINALLY got her Elf this year. She has been wanting one to come visit her for many years, we figured out this year what we were doing wrong. We read somewhere that you have to write Santa a letter prior to Thanksgiving asking for one to come visit. I didn't know that you had to request one! So, the day after Thanksgiving, she woke up to find a VERY pretty Elf in her bed laying beside her. She decided she would name her Hopeful Hannah after her best friend, Hope and Hannah Montana of course! Saturday, Hopeful Hannah was sweet enough to leave Isabella the DVD Merry Madagascar, I am not calling it a movie, just a DVD. Did you know that it is only 22 minutes long? I didn't! Sunday, Hopeful Hannah should have brought coal, but instead just did not bring anything or even do anything fun. Monday, Hopeful Hannah brought Isabella the movie Christmas Do Over. It is a cute movie that is an ABC Family Original. Let me tell you what Hopeful Hannah decided to do this morning! She rolled Isabella's bed and our Christmas tree in toilet paper! We KNOW it was Hopeful Hannah because Isabella found her on the Christmas tree with the empty toilet paper roll around her! Hopeful Hannah is SO funny! I can't wait to see what else she decides to do or bring!
