    Magic Reindeer Food

    Magic Reindeer Food

    20 oz vanilla candy coating
    1 1/2 cups mini pretzel
    3/4 cup cocktail peanuts
    5 1/2 cup Cheerios®
    4 1/2 cup rice chex®
    12 oz plain M&Ms®
    colored sugar

    1. Cut 2 long pieces of waxed paper and masking tape them together to make a
    double wide sheet to spread mixture on.

    2. Combine pretzels, peanuts, Cheerios and rice squares in a VERY large
    bowl.

    3. Cut candy coating into pieces and place in a glass container and microwave on High 2 1/2
    minutes or until it can be stirred smooth. Add melted candy coating to above
    mixture, tossing to coat.

    4. Stir in M & M's.

    5. Spread mixture onto wax paper, and sprinkle with sugars. Let stand 30
    minutes. Break into pieces.

    6. Can be used for any holiday, by changing colors of M & M's and colored
    sugars.

    Comments:

    Buying holiday M & M's and using corresponding colored sugars,

    make this a treat for any holiday of the year.

    The cheapest place I have found the vanilla candy coating is at Sam's Club. Get the Ghirardelli
    White Chocolate Flavor Candy Making & Dipping Bar. One of these 2.5 lb boxes makes 2
    batches of this mix.

    There use to be a saying that we attached to a bag of reindeer food. Does anyone have a copy of that?

    We once had a Finnish Exchange student staying with us - and she assured us that reindeer only eat a special type of moss. My husband is one of "that man in a red suit" helpers, and he tells the children to leave out broccoli for his steeds!
