Reindeer Chow


Christmas is right around the corner and my 2nd graders are singing ” Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” and “Let It Go” throughout the day, which can get annoying after six hours and I am trying to teach two digit subtraction. What’s worse is when I start unconsciously humming the lyrics of Frozen, one of the kids hear me and suddenly the whole class is shouting the words of Elsa and Anna.

In honor of Sven and Rudolph the Reindeers, I have made Reindeer Chow. It is basically the same thing as Puppy Chow, but more festive.



  • 12 cups of popped Popcorn or Original Chex Mix
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • Optional: Red and Green Mini M&Ms

Step 1: Add the chocolate chips and peanut butter into a microwavable bowl.


Step 2: Microwave for 20 seconds at a time and mix well. Repeat this until the chocolate and peanut butter is smooth and creamy.


Step 3: Put half the popcorn or chex mix into a bowl. Pour half the melted chocolate over the popcorn and mix carefully.



Step 4: Pour the other half of the popcorn or chex mix into the bowl. Pour the rest of the chocolate over top. Mix carefully.



Step 5: Place the chow into a clean plastic bag.


Step 6: Pour the powdered sugar into the bag. Close it and shake like crazy 🙂



Step 7: Put the reindeer chow into a bowl or pretty tin.


Step 8: Sprinkle M&M’s over top. Eat and Enjoy!
