Peppermint Reindeer Chow

Easy to make. Plus the kids can really help with this one! My daughter even added red sprinkles, which apparently help the glow of Rudolph's red nose, who knew?
To package it all up for the reindeer we poured it into little  paint cans from Target add I made fun little printable using, Maree Truelove's new Christmas clip art. These would make a fun treat for teachers, party favors, school parties, or just to set out on Christmas eve!

Here's what your going to need:
5 cups Corn Chex
1 bag Andes peppermint crunch baking chips
2 cups powdered sugar
3 TBS crushed peppermint sticks (optional)
Red sprinkles (optional)

Step 1: Pour powdered sugar into a gallon ziplock bag. Then add in your crushed peppermint and sprinkles if you would like. The sprinkles aren't necessary at all...but here we were improving the brightness of Rudolf's nose :). Just a little fun touch if your making with the kids!

2. Now melt your baking chips. I used my chocolate melter of course, here's more info on melting chocolate if you need it.

Step 3: Once melted, pour of chef mix in a large mixing bowl.

Step 4: Then gently stir. Don't use to much pressure or you'll smash your reindeer food to pieces! 

Step 5: Pour about half of your chex mix into the bag, make sure it's sealed really well, then shake, shake, shake! The kids love doing this part! 

Step 6: Use a slotted spoon to scoop on the covered mix and place into a second mixing bowl. Then repeat the process with the other half of the chex mix.

My daughter added just a few more sprinkles for good measure.

And the best part don't have to share this with the kids! It is after all for the reindeer :)!
