We’re halfway through #ChristmasSweetsWeek y’all! Today’s recipe is a sweet treat that any reindeer from Santa’s team would adore! It’s also pretty good for people Christmas parties. 😉
I think that snack mixes are great to have at parties and they’re perfect for bagging up to give to friends or for a sweet snack on the go. This one is my take on Reindeer Food Snack Mix!
We didn’t make it all the time but a few times we made Reindeer Food to sprinkles on the ground on Christmas eve to help guide the reindeer to our house. Back then though it wasn’t for us to eat. I even made some this year to go in Jax’s Chrismas eve box! It was made up of oats, and glitter haha, I even made some this year to go in Jax’s Chrismas eve box!. This recipe, however, is a great edible version!
See these adorable little Reindeer Food bites? They’re made with rice chex cereal, white chocolate and Christmas sprinkles. They’re so good!
Now, don’t forget that you can use all kinds of candy for your own homemade Reindeer Food Snack Mix but these are a few of the items that I used:
- Mini Pretzels
- Christmas Chocolate Candies
- Mini Jr. Mints
- Chocolate Covered Peanuts
- Muddy Buddies
- Homemade Reindeer Food Bites
I think that I’m totally going to be packing up a few bags of this Reindeer Food Snack Mix for my neighbors!
