Christmas Chow

Super easy and delicious Christmas Chow recipe { lilluna.com } Recipe made from chex cereal, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, peanut butter, and holiday m&m's.

Hello, it’s me – Lily!

We had our little party at our house tonight. My brother and I did it. I had a little station where I could sell stuff like drawings and candy. It was so awesome. After that, we ate some chocolate which was fun. I really liked it. Then, we made Christmas cards for a little girl in Utah who is sick and dying. I drew her a little “connect the dots” part on the card so she could connect them when she got it. On the cover, it said, “Hope you get better” with a big Heart. Everyone in my family made one. It made me so happy to do something nice for someone else. 🙂

Today’s recipe is for Christmas Chow, which is a Christmas version of Puppy Chow. We made it awhile ago and I really liked it!! We even gave some to the missionaries and they liked it too! I think your kids will like it also. It’s a little different than regular Puppy Chow and some butterscotch chips in it, which is really yummy.

If you don’t want to make cookies this year you can make him this Christmas Chow – I know he’ll like it!

We really like the taste of the Butterscotch in the mix. You can leave out the holiday M&Ms and just make it whenever you want – all year long! We just added only 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar instead of 2 1/2 so not all the cereal is coated looks a lit bit more like butterscotch.
