The holidays are a great time to snack to your heart’s content. Puppy chow is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. I can never put it down once I start! Here is a way to put a Christmas spin on puppy chow. It is so addicting!

Ingredients:

  • 5 cups Rice Chex cerealed9f54a3d36b5d361f0d70597c306389
  • 10 ounces vanilla almond bark or melting vanilla white chocolate
  • 1 cup crushed candy canes
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Pour the Chex cereal into a large bowl. Melt the white chocolate or almond bark according to the directions on the package. Pour the melted chocolate over the cereal and stir until it is completely covered. Next, add in the crushed candy canes. Dump the powdered sugar into a Zip Lock bag and then pour the chocolate/candy cane coated cereal into the bag. Seal up the bag, then shake until the cereal is covered by powdered sugar. Pour the puppy chow into a plastic container that has a tight fitting lid. This stuff doesn’t last long, trust me! It will be gone before you know it.  It is great as a little gift if you pour it into a goodie bag and tie a bow on it!

XOXO, Chels

Christmas time is here! I repeat, CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE! And with Christmas come delicious treats. Today’s delicious Christmas-themed sweet is holiday popcorn that will remind you of the Grinch himself!

Ingredients:grinch-popcorn2

  • Microwave popcorn
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • Blue and yellow food coloring
  • Another 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
  • Red M&Ms

Pop your microwave popcorn, and once it is done pull out all of the un-popped kernels. Next we make the marshmallow mixture. Melt ¼ cup of butter in a saucepan, and once it is melted add the 3 cups of marshmallows. Stir together until they are melted, and turn the heat off. Add 2 drops of yellow food coloring, mix until it is bright yellow, and then add a small drop of blue. Stir it until it turns green, then pour this mixture over the popcorn. Gently mix it in slowly until the popcorn is mostly covered. Cover a cookie sheet with foil, then pour the popcorn mixture onto it. Drizzle some of the marshmallow mixture over it so the M&Ms and marshmallows have something to stick to, then sprinkle ½ cup of mini marshmallows and M&Ms onto the popcorn. Allow it to cool, then eat up!

Your friends will love this festive treat fit for a Christmas movie night.

XOXO, Chels

Christmas Toffee

I have a new sweet & salty addiction and it is called Christmas toffee. I could pop this stuff in my pie hole all day and never tire of it, and I guarantee your friends and family will feel the same! Here is how to make this addicting delicacy.

Ingredients:

  • 30 to 40 saltine crackerspile 1
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Line a 9 x 13 pan or similar with aluminum foil and spray it very well with cooking spray. Place the saltine crackers in a single layer on the bottom of the pan.
  2. In a saucepan, combine butter and sugar and bring to a boil while stirring constantly.  Once a boil is reached, reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes or until mixture has thickened. Stir the mixture often while it simmers to avoid bubbling over or scorching.
  3. After mixture has thickened a bit, remove it from the heat, wait 30 seconds, add the vanilla extract and stir. Pour mixture over the prepared pan with the saltine crackers. Bake in for 5- 7 minutes, or until toffee/liquid becomes bubbly.
  4. After removing the pan from the oven, let it sit for 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle on the chocolate chips and wait for 3 to 5 minutes, letting them soften and melt a bit, and then spread and smooth them into an even layer with a spatula. After they have cooled a bit stick the pan in the fridge or freezer to firm them up. My family actually stores the toffee in the fridge to keep it fresh, and it tastes great cold.

Enjoy, and have a Merry Christmas!

XOXO, Chels
