White chocolate and peppermint combined with sweet and salty flavors make for the perfect holiday snack mix. This Reindeer Chow makes a great gift or holiday road trip snack!
Do you have that one thing that you have to make/eat/drink every year during the holidays, or else it just doesn’t feel like the holidays? This Reindeer Chow is my MUST MAKE every year. That and these chocolate peanut butter marshmallow cups that my grandma would make every year. I started making this Chex mix type snack back in college to bring to holiday get-togethers and I haven’t stopped making it since.
Chocolate mint flavored things are normally not really my favorite thing, but there’s something about this mix that it just is amazing! The crunchiness of the Chex cereal and m&m’s mixed with the minty baking chips, a little bit of salt from the popcorn, and the pretty red and green colors just makes me feel so festive. And there’s just enough white chocolate candy coating on the whole mix that it ties it all together without being overly sweet.
The other thing that I love about this snack mix is that it makes the perfect, easy homemade gift. It makes a pretty big batch and you can easily double it to give to coworkers, clients, neighbors, or for that last minute holiday party you get invited to. I like to buy holiday themed tins or mason jars at the dollar store and use those as super easy gifts. I’m also going to make a batch to bring with me on my 10 hour drive home because it's perfect for road trip munching!
