If you are looking for something fun to make with your little ones. this is your recipe. If you are looking for something quick to whip up as a gift to a neighbor, this is your recipe. This recipe for Candy Cane Crunch or Reindeer Feed as it is often called is only 3 ingredients and very easy. I hope you add this simple addition to your holiday baking line-up...it will not disappoint.


  • 6 cups rice chex cereal
  • 1 bag white chocolate baking chips
  • 1/3 cup crushed candy canes, approximately 14 mini candy canes crushed
  • Place your rice chex in a large bowl and lay a large piece of parchment or wax paper on your counter.
  • Melt your white chocolate baking chips in a microwave safe bowl for 30 second intervals on HIGH. Stir between each interval. It will take 1 1/2 to 2 minutes of intervals to achieve smooth, melted white chocolate.
  • Pour half of crushed candy canes into melted white chocolate and stir together. Pour over rice cereal and stir well to coat.
  • Pour  coated cereal onto prepared parchment or wax paper and spread evenly. Sprinkle remaining crushed candy canes over the white chocolate coated cereal.
  • Allow to harden for at least 30 minutes. Break apart into bite size pieces and enjoy! Store what you don't eat immediately in an airtight container.
