A simple cinnamon-sugar mixture tops this variation on Classic Puppy Chow for a treat reminiscent of freshly-baked cookies. Add to Mason jars with a tag and bow, and you've got a giftable Holiday snack.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal squares (such as Rice Chex)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar

How to Make It

  1. Place cereal in a large bowl; set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, stir together cinnamon and granulated sugar. Set aside.

  3. Place white chocolate chips in a small, microwave-safe glass bowl; microwave for 1 minute or until chocolate begins to melt. Remove from microwave and stir. Microwave an additional 30 seconds and stir until smooth.

  4. Add white chocolate to cereal in bowl; stir gently to evenly coat. Place mixture in a large, zip-top plastic bag. Add cinnamon-sugar mixture to bag. Seal bag and shake to combine. Add powdered sugar to bag. Seal bag; shake until cereal mixture is fully coated. Transfer mixture to a rimmed baking sheet lined with wax paper; cool completely. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week.
