Peppermint Muddy Mix

Peppermint Muddies

Everyone loves Chex Party mix and Muddy Mix around the holidays.  Today we have a fun extra-Christmas-y take on this old time favorite: Peppermint Muddy Mix!  It’s pretty easy to make and very delicious!

And if you like this recipe, you should also take a look at my Cheesecake Puppy Chow and Strawberry Cheesecake Puppy Chow!

Peppermint Muddy Mix

Peppermint Muddy Mix


16oz Vanilla candy coating or white chocolate


1 cup Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips

12 cup Chex cereal (rice or corn)

2 cups powdered sugar

6 regular sized Candy Canes, crushed


Place cereal in a very large bowl and set aside.

Crush your candy canes by placing in a ziplok bag and rolling with rolling pin, or use a blender or food processor for finely crushed candy canes.

Place vanilla candy coating (r white chocolate) and peppermint crunch baking chips in a separate large,microwave safe bowl. Microwave for about 2 minutes (stirring every 30 seconds to prevent scorching).

Pour melted chocolate over cereal. Add about 3/4 of the crushed candy canes. Mix until all the cereal is covered in chocolate.

Add powdered sugar and stir until fully coated. Sprinkle with remaining peppermint candy canes. Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
