For Alpha this week I wanted to mix things up a bit. So I made a couple different versions of Puppy Chow/Muddy Buddy. The first was a Peppermint Candy Cane, that can be found at Daily Dish.
I did double the recipe and the doubled recipe is below.
10 cups Chex cereal (rice or corn are my faves)
2 2/3 cups Andes Peppermint Baking Chips
2 cups powdered sugar
12 large candy canes, crushed or 1/2 a bag of starlight candies crushed in the food processor
Melt the Andes Peppermint Baking Chips in the microwave in a large glass bowl in 20-30 second intervals on half power, stirring between each interval until full melted.
Pour the Chex Cereal into the bowl and stir and fold the cereal and melted baking chips until fully coated.
In a large zip top baggie, pour in the powdered sugar and the crushed candy canes.
Pour in the coated chex cereal.
Seal the baggie and shake vigorously until all the cereal is coated with the sugar and candy canes.
Spread out on waxed paper or parchment paper to cool and harden.
You can store this in ziploc bags or containers.
This was really good!!!!
