"Reindeer Food"--Updated!

*oops, forgot an ingredient earlier. My bad. Here's the updated version:

Despite the fact that this blog seems to be devoted to recipes lately, I am going to post this one anyway. Truth be told, I'm not personally hip on white chocolate, but I'm told this recipe doesn't taste as good with alternatives. It's a super popular treat at Costco. If the store near you has a candy shop, you can always buy it there.

But, I mean, why not make your own?

This is the perfect bring-along snack, gift for neighbors, etc. Make up a bunch, wrap it up in pretty jars or tins, and you've got a great gift 'just in case' an unexpected guest arrives and you're empty handed.

Ingredients (quantities depending on your own taste)
Pretzels
M&M's
Mixed Nuts
Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal, or O's
Red sugar sprinkles
Green sugar sprinkles
White chocolate

Melt white candy coating, or white chocolate (note: if using white chocolate, temper it first. That means Take 2/3 and melt it, then as this starts to cool, add the remaining third that has been chopped into small pieces. Stir to melt, but you don't want this hot...you want it room temp)

Pour chocolate over all the goodies and sprinkle all with red and green sugar sprinkles. Mix em all up. What you get is sort-of chocolate-covered Chex mix type deal.
Enjoy!

Less than two weeks before Christmas, and I'm still dieting. What am I waiting for?
