Reindeer Mix

I had a little bit of time on my hands the other day while my husband was at work, so I thought I would make a fun treat to bring him and his workies!  :-)  Enter…Reindeer Mix.  Like Puppy Chow — but peppermint.  Thus, Reindeer Mix.  You dig?  Some of you are yelling at me through the computer — too EARLY for the Christmas “stuff.”  To you, I say — I know.  BUT, it was an especially cool and overcast day, I was playing Christmas music in our apartment, and I thought — why not?  

Reindeer Mix
Serves: Lots of hungry men (or just a lot of peeps in general)

Mix Far Away

1 regular-sized box Rice Chex cereal
1 cup Peppermint Hershey’s Kisses
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


1. Melt the Hershey’s Kisses and butter in a *large* microwave-safe bowl.  Do this in 30-second increments, and stir in between each session.  When melted, stir in the vanilla.

2. Pour the Rice Chex cereal into the very melty chocolate-butter mixture, a little bit at a time — and stir gently, coating.

3. In a Zip-Lock bag, add half of the powdered sugar, and half of the Chex mixture.  Zip up the bag and shake what yo momma gave ya!  Empty the bag into an airtight container, and repeat the process with the remaining powdered sugar and Chex mixture.

4. Enjoy!  But not too much, otherwise you will get heartburn.  I’m not kidding.

    Wow, this one sounds great!! I will try it fo sho!!!
    I’d have to say my favorite is traditional chex mix; also my best friend Kimmy’s mom taught me how to make Froot Loop Candy. It is this white chocolate mix up of froot loop cereal, rice krispies, dry roasted peanuts, chopped dates (yes as a child I avoided the dates, but now Iove them in this), baby marshmallows. You melt the white chocolate, and pour all the other stuff in and then spoon it in little spoony chunks onto wax paper. (like you would with cookie dough) When it dries it is truly a sweet treat!! But you have to work fast, because it does cool, dry and harden quickly.

    What a fun blog!!!
