Reindeer Munchies

I got a free recipe booklet from Land-o-Lakes Butter and thought it would be super cute to make with/for kids!

5 cups sweetened corn & oat
honeycomb-shaped cereal
2 cups thin pretzel sticks,
broken in half
1/2 cup LAND O LAKES®
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter*
1 (11.5-ounce) package (1 1/2 cups)
milk chocolate chips
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup red and green candy-coated
milk chocolate pieces
Ice cream cones, if desire

Preparation time: 25 minutes | Total time: 45 minutes | Yield: 12 cups
Reindeer Munchies
Let the kids measure the ingredients and shake the bags for
a sweet snack. santa and the elves will gobble it up!
Combine cereal and pretzels in large bowl; set aside.
Place butter, peanut butter and chocolate chips in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100%
power) for 45 seconds; stir. Continue microwaving until butter and chocolate are melted (15 to 45 seconds). Stir
until smooth.
Immediately pour chocolate mixture over cereal in bowl; stir until well coated. Spread mixture evenly into single layer
on 2 waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate 20 minutes to set.
Break into bite-sized pieces; divide mixture between two large resealable plastic food bags. Pour 1/2 cup powdered
sugar into each bag; seal bags. Shake bags until mixture is well coated. Place 1/2 cup chocolate pieces in each
bag; seal bags. Carefully shake to distribute chocolate pieces.
To serve, spoon mixture into ice cream cones, if desired. Store mixture in resealable plastic food bags or container
with tight-fitting lid in refrigerator up to 4 weeks.
*Substitute almond butter or hazelnut-chocolate spread.
TIP: Add more powdered sugar after storage, if needed.
TIP: For longer storage, freeze in container with tight-fitting lid or resealable plastic freezer bags up to 2 months
