    This is a sweet and easy recipe the kids can help make. Santa and Rudolph will gobble it up.

    Prep: 25 min - Microwave: 1 min - Chill: 20 min

    Snack Mix Ingredients:

    5 cups sweetened corn & oat honeycomb-shaped cereal or cereal squares
    2 cups thin pretzel sticks, broken in half
    1/2 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter
    1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
    1 (11.5-ounce) package (1 1/2 cups) real milk chocolate chips
    1 cup powdered sugar
    1 cup red and green candy-coated milk chocolate candies

    Storage Ingredients:

    2 (1-gallon size) resealable plastic food bags

    Combine cereal and pretzels in 4-quart bowl; set aside.

    Place butter, peanut butter and chocolate chips in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 45 seconds; stir. Continue microwaving until butter and chocolate are melted (15 to 45 seconds). Stir until smooth.

    Immediately pour chocolate mixture over cereal in bowl; stir until well coated. Spread mixture evenly into single layer on two waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate 20 minutes to set.

    Break into bite-sized pieces; place half of mixture in each plastic food bag. Pour 1/2 cup powdered sugar into each bag; seal bags. Shake bags until mixture is well coated. Place 1/2 cup candies in each bag. Seal bags; gently shake bags to distribute candies. Store mixture in sealed bags or airtight container in refrigerator up to 4 weeks.

    TIP: Add more powdered sugar after storage, if needed.

    TIP: For longer storage, freeze in airtight container or resealable plastic freezer bags up to 2 months.

    High Altitude: No adjustment needed.
