A Reindeers got to munch!

We made this awfully fun, terribly delicious (as in I couldn't stop eating it!) little treat called Reindeer Munch. Even though it looks like a gooey, dirty mess- well, it is- it is music to your mouth!
I used this recipe from We Got to Eat.

Reindeer Munch

 Active Cooking Time: 20 min. Total Time: 50 min.
2 c. bite-size square-shaped rice cereal, such as Chex
2 c. thin pretzel sticks
1 c. salted cocktail peanuts (or use soy nuts)
1 c. dried cranberries
1 c. candy-coated milk-chocolate pieces, such as M&M's
12 oz. vanilla-flavored candy coating or white candy melts
1. In a very large bowl combine the cereal, pretzels, peanuts, cranberries and candy pieces; set aside.
2. Chop candy coating; in a medium microwave-safe bowl melt it according to package directions. Pour over cereal mixture; toss to coat.
3. Spread mixture on a large piece of foil. Let stand until set (about 30 minutes). Break into bite-size pieces. Makes 12 cups (24 1/2-cup servings).

Kaylee and I then made little signs and two different packaging types. Make sure to line whatever packaging you prefer (the paper cones, or paper bags) with wax paper, as this can get messy and leave wet marks on the paper. Or if you prefer to eat most of it, whilst watching Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, you may join my couch potato club and do just that.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Love and little snacks,
Kerry the Momster.
