White Chocolate Peppermint Muddy Buddies



  • 6 cup dry cereal - I used square rice and circle oat cereal
  • 1 cup white chocolate baking chips
  • 1/2 cup crushed peppermints - you can use peppermint candies or candy canes
  • 1/3 cup powder sugar


  1. Place the peppermint candy canes in a Ziploc® brand Freezer Bag with Easy Open Tabs. Using a rolling pin, repeatedly roll over the candies to crush up the candies into very small pieces, almost a powder-like consistency with a few bigger chunks in there.
  2. Melt your white chocolate baking chips in a microwave safe bowl for 1 minute. Stir. If it needs more melting time, microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir to help melt and incorporate all the chips.
  3. Place your cereal into a gallon size Ziploc® brand Freezer Bag with Easy Open Tabs. Pour your melted chocolate, after it has cooled a bit, over the cereal. Seal up the bag and shake it up.
  4. Mix and stir the bag for 20-30 seconds to coat the cereal with chocolate. The added tab on these makes them easy to grip and easy to open, even if my hands are a little messy from making this recipe! Open up your bag and add in your crushed peppermint. Seal up the bag and shake it up again. Open up your bag once again and add in your powder sugar. Seal the bag and shake it one last time.
  5. Pour your mixed snack into containers. This recipe will fill 2 medium square Ziploc® brand Containers with One Press Seal. Once you add your snack, the white chocolate will cool and solidify, making your muddy buddies easy to break apart and munch on.
