This Reindeer Chow (a seasonal version of Puppy Chow) is fun and festive and loaded with sweet and salty flavors! It is the perfect snack for your next holiday get together!
A PERFECT PARTY TREAT
I love mixes during the holiday season, or pretty much all year long. The combinations that there are are pretty much endless. This Reindeer Chow is my personal go-to for the holiday season! With minimal ingredients and time, this is a great recipe to put out at parties, give as gifts or just to munch on when you are hungry. We always make this as a family and is a standing tradition that it is not Christmas unless we make our Reindeer Chow Recipe! So if you are looking for a fun treat to make with the kids, to give as gifts or to bring to your next holiday gathering look no further.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Does Reindeer chow need to be kept refrigerated.?
Not if you are going to eat it within 2-3 days. Just make sure to keep it in a ziptop bag or a lidded container. I really enjoy eating it cold so maybe give that a try!
Is there another variation I could make?
Reindeer Chow is so easy and versatile that you can make so many changes! Try using Cinnamon Chex or Chocolate ChexCereal - both are so delicious! You can add in mini marshmallows or dried fruit to change it up!
Can I use other nut butters in Reindeer Chow?
I am not really familiar with other nut butters but as long as the consistency of your nut butter is similar to peanut butter and isn't too oily, then it should work here. If you need your Reindeer Chow to be peanut-free, you can substitute the peanut butter with white chocolate chips and replace the peanuts and mini peanut butter cups with miniature marshmallows, and whole chocolate chips.
How do I store?
Store in an airtight container or ziptop bag at room temperature for a week or in the refrigerator if you like it chilled for 10 days! This can also be frozen, you can make it ahead of time and freeze it in a freezer bag for up to 2 months. Thaw at room temperature before serving but make sure you try it frozen, game changer!
