1 bag of popped popcorn (about 4 cups total)
4 cups Rice Chex cereal
8 oz white candy coating or almond bark
1 (9 oz) bag Peppermint M&Ms
1 (9 oz) bag milk chocolate red and green M&Ms
2 cups Peppermint Crunch
Lay wax paper down over your kitchen counters to pour your Reindeer Food on.
In a large mixing bowl, combine your popcorn and Chex mix together.
In a microwavable bowl, melt your candy coating, stirring every 45 seconds. Once it’s melted, quickly pour it over your popcorn mixture and toss. Working quickly, add in your M&Ms, Peppermint Crunch and sprinkles and then pour the mixture down over the wax paper to dry (about 10 minutes). Once it’s dried, store in an airtight container.
And of course, you could mix and match this a million ways by adding in your favorite Christmas candy!
After we made this edible Reindeer Food, my kids wanted to make some for the actual reindeer, so we went through the pantry, grabbed what we thought a reindeer would like and then added red glitter to the finished product. So simple and fun! They can’t wait to leave it out on Christmas Eve night!
We combined uncooked oatmeal, coconut, walnuts, Peppermint Crunch and red glitter in a bowl. So quick and easy and perfect to sprinkle in the front yard on Christmas Eve night. My kids were thrilled with this little mixture!
Enjoy your Reindeer Food!
Happy (Christmas) Friday!
