Then you’ll also need Golden Grahams cereal, and sourdough pretzel nibblers.
And for the sweets you’ll need white baking chips, M&M Christmas candy, peppermint candies and red candy sprinkles.

How to Make a Delicious Peppermint Christmas Chex Mix
Step 1- Combine Cereal and Pretzels
In a large bowl combine Chex cereal, Golden Grahams cereal and pretzels.
Step 2- Melt White Baking Chips
Next you’ll want to melt the white baking chips.
I believe the easiest way to do this is to pour the bag of baking chips in a microwave safe bowl and cook for 30 seconds on high.
Then remove bowl from microwave and stir the baking chips with a wooded spoon.
Repeat this process, cooking for 30 seconds and stir until the baking chips are melted.
If you’d rather melt them on the stove top, fill a pan with a couple of inches of water and bring to a simmer.
Then pour the bag of baking chips in a bowl that will sit over the pan, but not touching the water.
Stir baking chips with a wooden spoon until melted.
Step 3- Add Melted Chips to the Cereal Mixture
Now it’s time to pour the melted baking chips over the cereal mixture.
We discovered it worked better to add the M&Ms and the peppermint candy after the melted baking chips are combined with the cereal mixture.
So, wait to add the M&Ms and peppermint candy.
Step 4- Cool Mixture Add Candy
Pour the coated cereal mixture onto a large sheet pan.
Then sprinkle the cereal mixture with the crushed peppermint and holiday M&Ms.
And finally sprinkle with red candy sprinkles.
Cool the Peppermint Christmas Chex Mix completely.
Step 5- Package the Gift for Neighbors
Once the Peppermint Christmas Chex Mix is cooled place in cellophane bags.
Tie with a cute Christmas ribbon and add a gift tag.
