Reindeer Food

If you are ready for the most addictive winter holiday snack, look no further!

I think I have found a new tradition in this Reindeer Food recipe. We have made it for the past two years and we love it! Matthew is already asking if I'm going to be making another batch this year because this year's batch lasted all of a night and then it was gone! It's ridiculously easy - with only three ingredients - and it's pretty quick to make too. My family loves to help make it because it boils down to stirring and crushing and the kids and Nick like doing those things! LOL

I'm not kidding at all when I say this is super addictive. We could not even let it set up before we were eating it. And it's so hard to not continue to eat it once you've started. I do suppose this is supposed to be for Santa's reindeer, but sorry, Rudolph, guess we're just going to leave you a carrot this year!

What you need:
  • 6 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 12 oz. vanilla bark
  • 1/3 cup crushed peppermint candy canes
  1. Place cereal in a large bowl.
  2. Microwave vanilla bark according to package directions (or in 30 second increments) until completely melted and smooth.
  3. Pour vanilla bark over the top of the cereal with half of the candy canes. Stir gently to coat.
  4. Spread mixture onto a parchment paper or silicone mat lined baking sheet.
  5. Immediately sprinkle with remaining candy canes.
  6. Let sit for 20 minutes and then gently break into smaller pieces.
  7. Store in an airtight container, if it lasts that long ;)

These Peppermint Hot Cocoa Crunch Donuts are not for reindeer but they are perfect for Christmas morning or honestly any winter morning. Another wonderful peppermint treat for the holiday season is this Peppermint Fudge from Shugary Sweets.
