Fun And Festive Reindeer Chow

When my mother grew up, she would make what she called "reindeer feed." It was very similar to this version, but with only almond bark, the mixins weren't exactly the same. Nevertheless, it was not a delicious pastry.


  • 4 cup chex cereal
  • 3 cup cheerio cereal
  • 2 cup M&Ms - red and green 11.40 oz bag
  • 1 cup pretzels - halved sticks or mini twists
  • 1 cup dry roasted peanuts
  • 20 oz white chocolate
  • 2 tbsp vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp festive sprinkles - optional


  1. Line a rimmed baking sheet with wax paper, parchment or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the cereal, M&Ms, pretzels, and peanuts. Set aside.
  3. In a double boiler or in the microwave, melt white chocolate and shortening until smooth. Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla extract.
  4. Pour chocolate over the cereal mixture and stir until evenly coated. Pour over the prepared baking sheet, add sprinkles over top.
  5. Place in the refrigerator and chill for 30 minutes before breaking apart into chunks.
