How To Make Christmas Reindeer Bait Crack Sweet Dish Recipe In New Style
It was only a week or so after I wrote about the best ever corporate produced snack mix that something else was thrust in front of me. My wife shared one of those recipe viral videos to my Facebook wall of what I can only describe as the holiday homemade snack mix of all holiday homemade snack mixes. The outrageous Yuletide treat had quite the name: Christmas Reindeer Bait Crack.
However, Reindeer Bait Crack was almost as if the colorful name still fell short on doing it justice. Then again, it really is hard to decide upon a worthy name for a snack that uses eight sweet and/or salty snacks. Christmas Reindeer Crack calls for the sweet tooth “crackhead” cook to mix pretzels, peanuts, Fritos, Chex Mix, Bugles, and M&M’s together in a gigantic container. After the items are combined, white chocolate is poured over the contents to bring together the several different snacks into one. It is quite the sight.
Did I see myself making it? With a half of a tub of Rudolph’s Mix still left in our pantry and with all the Thanksgiving dishes and leftovers, my initial thought was no. However, my initial thinking would soon be tweaked…After I commented underneath the post that Sid shared with something along the lines of “OMG THAT IS INCREDIBLE” she responded with a simple question.
This recipe is so easy to do, and so good! Great for parties and holiday gatherings. Just change out the colors of your M&M’s to suit the occasion.
- 3 cups salted pretzels
- 2 cups bugles
- 2 cups fritos
- 1 cup Chex mix
- 1 cup roasted peanuts
- 1-1/2 cup M&M’s
- 1 package of white melting chocolate
In a large bowl pour your Pretzels, Fritos, Bugles, Chex Mix, Peanuts & M&M’s, and thoroughly mix.
Place the melting chocolate in a bowl and microwave for 45 seconds. Stir and, if needed, heat an additional 15 seconds until it’s smooth and creamy. Watch it closely, and keep stopping to stir. It burns easily if you don’t keep an eye on it. Drizzle melted chocolate over the mixture in the bowl and mix to coat it all.
Once fully coated, take a large cookie sheet covered with wax paper, and spread it all out, allowing it to cool completely.
Once cooled, break into pieces and store in an air tight container. This does not need to be refrigerated.
Done And Serve It.
