Easy White Chocolate Candy Cane Chex Mix

I should rename this White Chocolate Candy Cane Chex Mix to “Christmas Crack”. It is SO addictive! I could not walk past it without having a bite. Thankfully, I had some great friends that agreed to take most of this mix off my hands.

How to Make Peppermint Chex Mix

This recipe only has 3 simple ingredients and takes about a minute to make. Place some Chex cereal in a large bowl. Melt a package of almond bark, stir in peppermint oil, and pour over the cereal. Toss to coat the cereal. Add crushed candy canes and toss again. Spread out on wax or parchment paper to cool and set up. Break into pieces and enjoy.

  • This recipe uses peppermint oil and NOT peppermint extract. Adding liquids to almond bark will cause the candy coating to seize up. Using peppermint oil won’t change the consistency of the candy coating and adds a lot of peppermint flavor. You can buy it at a cake decorating store, Hobby Lobby, online at King Arthur Flour, or with my affiliate link at Amazon: https://amzn.to/3505NNw
  • The coated cereal will keep for at least a week in an air-tight container.
  • You can use flavor Chex cereal that you prefer.
  • I use a food processor and basically make candy cane dust with small pieces.
  • If you don’t want to use almond bark, you can substitute an equivalent amount of white chocolate. You will want to add a tablespoon or two of shortening to the white chocolate chips to easier to melt and gives it a smoother, creamier texture.

  1. Your recipe looks great but any kind of mint makes me ill. Is there something else you could suggest? Thanks.

  2. the food processor pulverizes the candy canes nicely, but i prefer to double bag them and whack them with a meat mallet. It works and makes me feel better.
