Why We Love Reindeer Chow

We love to make this easy Reindeer Chow Chex mix recipe for our friends and family during the holidays. I love the fact that my kids can make it without my help and it’s better than candy. It’s so simple!

Super easy Reindeer Chow that makes the perfect snack gifts. It's always a hit each year.

Why We Love Reindeer Chow

This Chex mix recipe can be prepared in your beloved microwave, so it’s safe for your kiddos to make by themselves and makes a tasty Christmas treat for gift giving. Not to mention, it’s wonderful and festive.

Storage Tips

Sometimes we put about a cup in plastic baggies and tie it up with a festive bow. This year we bought these cute little buckets at the dollar store. I also put this in my daughter’s snack mix while she is at school.

Substitutions and Additions

You can be creative and wrap it for any occasion and by making the mix with different color M&M’s, mini-pretzels, sprinkles, and peanuts.


  • 3 c of rice Chex mix
  • 3 c of corn Chex mix
  • 3 c of Cheerios
  • 3 c of pretzel sticks
  • 16 oz pkg of M&M’s
  • 3 pkg of white chocolate chips, 12 oz each

Recipe Instructions

In a large mixing bowl, toss together all the ingredients except white chocolate chips; set aside. Place white chocolate chips, and melt chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 1 min, stir, and repeat until melted. Melt completely and pour white chocolate chips over the mixture. Stir until well coated in a large bowl. Spread mixture with a spatula on parchment paper-lined baking sheet until set. Break up into bite-size pieces and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Store in air-tight containers.

Makes about 13-14 cups.
