Reindeer Christmas Mix | Holiday Muddy Buddies | Peanut Butter Free

This Holiday Muddy Buddies Mix is a party favorite of my family ! It's easy and quick, made with Chex cereal and Chocolate !  Package the Reindeer Christmas Mix up in pretty cellophane bags or tins for family and friends !

Reindeer Christmas Mix Muddy Buddies


My husband isn't a fan of peanut butter, so I adapted this recipe to make it peanut-butter free.


Muddy Buddies Reindeer Mix


We still like peanuts in our Muddy Buddy Mix, but you can leave them out if you prefer.  Whether you use Dark Chocolate or White Chocolate, it's unanimous in our family that this is one of the best snack mixes  during the holidays !

I always try to find my ingredients at Aldi for the best prices.
