Reindeer Chow


  • 6 C. Rice Chex cereal
  • 1 C. chocolate chips
  • 1/2 C. peanut butter creamy
  • 1 C. brownie mix or 1 C. powdered sugar plus 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 3 C. pretezels
  • 1 bag Mint M&M's

NOTE: for peanut allergies omit peanut butter and chocolate chips. Use 1 1/2 C. chocolate "melts" instead. "Melts" are little chocolate wafers that are meant for melting and candy decorating. Many companies make them but they all call them different things.


  1. 1. Place cereal in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. 2. On the stovetop over medium-low heat, melt chocolate chips and peanut butter together. Stir until smooth.
  3. 4. Pour over cereal and gently fold until coated.
  4. 5. Dump into a large plastic bag (or tupperware with a lid) and add brownie mix. Shake, shake, shake until covered!
  5. 6. Pour onto a cookie sheet to let cool.
  6. 7. Mix in pretzels and M&M's and enjoy! Serve in bowls or give away in goody bags with bows!
