Every year I make Christmas treats. Often times I am making treats for Tyler's co-workers or for a Christmas get together. When I make treats I'm usually hoping for three things. One that they are easy tomake, two that they are easy on our budget, and three that they taste really good. For the last few years I have made pretzel rolos and they are always well liked. Pretzel rolos for the win!
This year I decided to add some Puppy Chow to my go to Christmas treats. I had never actually made Puppy Chow before and Tyler suggested we make it for a party we were going to. While we were grocery shopping I texted a friend for the ingredients and we were good to go.
Pretzel rolos and Puppy Chow are both super easy to make and super quick. The pretzel rolos are pretty self explanatory. Grab a bag of rolos and grab a bag of pretzels and you're good to go. For the
Method : You'll need to preheat your oven to 375º, place pretzels on cookie sheet, place rolos on top of the pretzel, pop in the oven for 2-4 minutes. I check mine after 2 minutes. If they are shinning, try smashing on a pretzel. If it works you're good to go.
Puppy chow will take a little longer to make but it's still just as easy and just as quick. You'll need; one box of rice chex, one bag of chocolate chips, 1 1/2 cups of peanut butter, 1tbs of vanilla, and two cups of powered sugar. Begin by melting your chocolate chips in a sauce pan. Once the chocolate is melted mix in your peanut butter and vanilla. In a large bowl, pour chocolate mixture of rice chex. Once rice chex are coated with chocolate add to zip lock bag, pour in powdered sugar and shake. Serve and enjoy!
These Christmas treats are probably my favorite to make because they are so easy and so delicious. What are some of your favorite quick and easy Christmas treats? xo. Samantha
