3 Easy Christmas Treats

Hi guys!

I can’t believe that Christmas Eve is one week from today. December has absolutely flown by! I’m sharing three easy Christmas themed recipes if you are in need of a last-minute dessert for Christmas parties.

Reindeer Chow (Puppy Chow with a few mix-ins)


  • 9 cups Rice Chex, Corn Chex, Chocolate Chex cereal or combo
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


  1. Measure cereal and set aside.
  2. In 1-quart microwavable bowl microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High for 1 minute stir. Microwave until the mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla.
  3. Pour mixture over cereal stirring until evenly coated. Place the mixture in a 2-gallon plastic bag.
  4. Add powder sugar, seal bag. Shake until well coated then add in M&M’s and pretzel pieces. Place on a baking sheet to cool. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Christmas Rolo Pretzels


  • Pretzels (I always use the circle ones that come out around this time, but regular pretzels will work too)
  • Christmas M&M’s
  • Rolo Candies


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Place pretzel rings flat on a baking sheet. Place Rolo candies inside pretzel rings.
  3. Place in the oven and leave them in there for 3-5 minutes. Keep an eye on them because they will melt.
  4. Once they come out of the oven place an M&M on top of the Rolo. Let cool before moving them.

Christmas Rice Krispie Bars


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 package (10 oz) marshmallows or 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal (Holiday Edition)


  1. In a large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat.
  2. Add cereal and stir until coated.
  3. Using butter spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2 pan coated with cooking spray. Cool and then cut into squares.

I hope you enjoy!
