Recipe: Reindeer Chow

Friday, December 11, 2009

Making Reindeer Chow might be one of my favorite (and easiest) advent activities with the kids. They love getting to cook and measure out the ingredients and truly, it's sooo tasty. You might have seen something similar at your mall; they call it "White Trash"... I think Reindeer Chow sounds a tad more festive, don't you?

Reindeer Chow

4 C Cheerios
4 C Chex (I used 2 cups rice & 2 cups corn)
4 C Honeycombs
2 C Holiday M&Ms
2C Pretzels (minis or sticks)
1 Pkg Almond Bark

Use a really large mixing bowl (sometimes I just half the recipe and make it in two batches if I don't have a really large bowl available) and spray a light coating of cooking spray on it. Mix together all the ingredients except the almond bark.

Melt the almond bark. You can do this in a double boiler (a metal or glass bowl over a pot of boiling water) or you can microwave it according to the directions on your package. Once the almond bark is melted you can pour it over the cereal mixture and mix thoroughly.

Spred the mixture out on wa paper to dry and cool. Break it apart and store in an airtight container.

I warn, you, this is so addictive.
