Holiday Reindeer Chow

Peppermint Bark Reindeer Chow

My sister is an expert “puppy chow” maker, and a couple of years ago, I decided to try to make a holiday version. It turned out amazingly well (if I do say so myself), and now we make it every year. The addition of peppermint bark really takes it to the next level, and we had to change the name to suit the season, duh.

Line a large baking sheet with waxed or parchment paper. Pour cereal into a large bowl. Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler on stovetop over low heat, or in a bowl in the microwave for 20 second increments stirring in between, until smooth. Pour melted chocolate onto cereal in bowl, and stir until coated. Transfer mixture to 2 gallon food-storage plastic bag. Add powdered sugar, peppermint bark pieces,
