Pin to Present: Peppermint Crunch Puppy Chow

I. Love. Puppy Chow. So when I found this recipe for Peppermint Crunch Puppy Chow, I was very excited. I actually combined two different "pins," if you will, for inspiration: Sally's Baking Addiction gave me the peppermint idea, and I liked the recipe Peanut Butter Fingers used for her Pumpkin Spice Puppy Chow (I also improvised and added peppermint extract).

Ingredients:
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 12-ounce package white baking chips
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 cup of crushed candy canes
  • 9 cups rice Chex cereal

Directions:
  • Melt the white baking chips in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave for a minute, stir well, and continue microwaving at 15 second intervals until completely melted.
  • Stir in peppermint extract 
  • Add rice Chex cereal
  • Add crushed candy cane pieces
  • Add powdered sugar (I typically use a large tupperware container to shake and cover all of the cereal with powdered sugar)
And voila! A fantastically delicious treat!
In a pinch for a cute/quick gift idea? Grab some scrapbook paper, holiday-themed stickers, and a stapler. Use these for an office holiday party (the reason I made them), a family get-together, or as a gift for neighbors!
