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.
