Happy New Year! Hope you had some good family time. We were able to spend the holidays with family. Christmas found us in St. Louis and then we made a short trip to Tulsa to visit my family. With two long car rides (both trips are around 4 hours) I wanted to make sure the girls had plenty of snacks. The girls helped me pick out Peppermint Crunch Snack Mix by Sally's Baking Addiction and Holiday Vanilla Chex Party Mix by The Wannabe Chef (check back tomorrow for that post).
Peppermint Crunch Snack Mix
- 5 cups Rice Chex
- 10 oz melting chocolate or vanilla flavored Almond Bark
- 1 cup crushed candy canes
- 1 cup powdered sugar
Pour 5 cups of cereal into a large bowl. Melt white chocolate according to package directions. Pour melted chocolate over cereal, stirring and folding until the cereal is completely covered. Fold in the crushed candy canes.
In a large zipped top bag or covered container, add the powdered sugar. Pour the chocolate covered cereal into the large bag and seal. Shake until the cereal is coated with the powdered mixture.
Audrey loved smashing the candy canes. She did such a good job I had to get a second bag to put the entire package in to keep the dust from spilling out.
