I really enjoy making different themed chow mixes for each holiday season during the year, and this Christmas Snack Mix AKA Rudolph Chow Mix is perfect for the Christmas season.

It can be served in a large bowl at a holiday party, or in individual bags with printable toppers for school parties.

Before you serve it though, make sure you check to see if anyone has a peanut allergy, since it does contain peanut butter.

You can easily substitute for an alternative, if an allergy is an issue.

It’s delicious, easy to make, and requires no baking, mainly just stirring!

I buy most of the ingredients in bulk at my local warehouse club, because it’s another recipe that’s frequently requested when I’m invited to a holiday event and ask what I can bring.

The quantity can be adjusted to meet your needs, and although we rarely have leftovers, I store any we do have in individual ziploc snack bags for the kids to use as their school snack.

None of them are in Peanut Free Classrooms this year 🙂

Christmas Snack Mix

To begin, gather all of the ingredients necessary.

In a large bowl add in the 8 Cups of Rice Chex cereal.

Set aside.

Christmas Snack Mix

In a medium sized glass bowl add in chocolate chips and Peanut Butter.

*Note: If you are dealing with a peanut allergy, substituting for sunbutter, cashew butter, etc is perfectly fine.

Microwave for 1 minute.

Stir the ingredients together until smooth.

If there are still un-melted chocolate chips then microwave for another 15 seconds.

Christmas Snack Mix

Once PB and chocolate are combined and smooth, poor mixture on top of the cereal.

Stir until all cereal is coated with the chocolate mixture.

Christmas Snack Mix

Add the powdered sugar and stir until all of the chocolate covered cereal is coated with the sugar.

Christmas Snack Mix

Add in the candy and pretzels.

Everyone said they would eat it if I would omit the cranberries. But I would eat it either way.
