Reindeer Treats

Dec 25, 2017

Christmas may be over, but I am still eating these reindeer treats non-stop! Reindeer treats, muddy buddies, puppy show, whatever you want to call it this is my favorite treat year round. It’s also the perfect treat to leave out for the reindeer at Christmas. This chocolate peanut buttery snack is so good that you have to seriously restrain yourself from eating the whole batch. They disappear faster than it takes to make them, and they are one of the quickest treats to make so that’s saying something!

You can find the recipe below and share with your friends or just keep them for yourself like I do…

Reindeer Treats/ Muddy Buddies Recipe

  • 10 cups Rice Chex cereal
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


-In a large bowl, measure the cereal and set aside.

  1. How cute! I never would have thought to call this reindeer treats, it’s usually doggie chow or something? It’s one of my favorites of the chex mix treats!
