Hi everyone, and happy holidays! Thanks for welcoming me back into your inbox.

I love to reinvent dessert flavors at home through the lens of the classic chocolate-peanut butter puppy chow, especially over the holiday season, when having a great snack at arm’s length is a sweet and joyful survival tactic. Change up the cereal from the traditional Chex, sprinkles or mix-ins to make it even more yours if you like. And don’t get mad at me if this Holiday Mix plays on repeat in your home long after the tree comes down — it’s legendary in my house all year round for its simplicity, speed and outright tastiness.

Christina Tosi’s Frosted Sugar Cookie Holiday Mix

Servings: 4 cups

Copy Ingredients

  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • ⅓ cup cookie butter
  • 3 cups Corn Chex
  • 1 cup sugar cookie pieces, Bday Cake Crumbs, graham crackers, etc. (or add 1 more cup of cereal!)
  • 1 ¼ cups confectioners’ sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp. colored sugar sprinkles

Copy Directions

    1. In a large, microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate and oil in 30-second spurts, stirring intermittently until fully melted. Stir in cookie butter and mix until smooth.

    2. Stir in cereal and cookie pieces, and continue stirring to coat all entirely in the chocolate-cookie butter mixture.

    3. Pour the contents of the large bowl into a Ziploc bag. Add confectioners’ sugar, salt and colored sugar sprinkles. Zip the top of the bag closed and toss around until all pieces are coated entirely and look like frosted sugar cookies with colored sprinkles.

    4. Chill in the fridge for 10 minutes to set the chocolate shell, then eat! Store in the Ziploc bag in the fridge or at room temp for up to a month. (But it’s so tasty, no way it will last that long.) Serve when the snacking mood strikes, or whenever you have guests over this holiday season!
