‘Tis the season to eat and we’ve got some of the most festive and simple holiday treats!

 

1. Peppermint Puppy Chow

What You’ll Need:

  • Box of plain Chex cereal
  • Bags of White Chocolate Chips
  • Pack of candy canes

1) Start by melting your white chocolate chips in 30 second intervals, stirring occasionally until completely melted. Be careful not to overcook the chips.

2) Unwrap your candy canes and place in a Ziploc bag. Smash the candy canes on a hard surface until in small pieces.

3) Pour your melted white chocolate over the Chex mix in a large bowl and stir (be careful not to crush the cereal pieces too much).

4) When all of the cereal is coated in the white chocolate, pour the mixture out on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with the crushed candy canes.

5) Place in refrigerator until hardened and enjoy!

2. Chocolate-Covered Marshmallows

What You’ll Need:
