Blizzard Bites in a Jar

By: RecipeLion.com

Blizzard Bites in a Jar

Crunchy and sweet, these Blizzard Bites in a Jar is a great no-bake snack mix for the hoilday season. It's a quick and easy (and affordable) gift to give to anyone around the holiday season, such as coworkers, teachers, hair stylists, and more. Your part is easy: simply gather and stack the ingredients in a jar. The baking that's required of the recipient is minimal and this treat will certainly be enjoyed by all. The sweet and salty snack is great for an afternoon treat, or a midnight snack! 

Ingredients
  • 1 cup rice squares cereal (Rice Chex, or similar)
  • 1 cup pretzel twists, small
  • 1/2 cup dry-roasted peanuts
  • 1/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup dried pineapple, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 canning jar, quart-size with lid and ring
  • 1 food storage bag, small (optional)
Instructions
  1. Layer cereal, pretzels, peanuts, cranberries and dried pineapple in a quart-sized Mason jar.
     
  2. Place white chocolate chips on top of the layered ingredients. (Hint: place them inside of a food storage bag beforehand) 
     
  3. Seal jar, and attach a gift tag with recipe instructions (see below).

 

Blizzard Bites in a Jar

To prepare:

  1. Remove white chocolate chips from jar. Empty remaining jar contents into a large mixing bowl, and mix thoroughly.
     
  2. Place white chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl. Melt white chocolate chips in the microwave for 45 seconds. Remove and stir until melted. If additional time is needed, check at 15 second intervals.
     
  3. Pour melted white chocolate chips over snack mixture. Stir until snack mixture is evenly coated. Spread mixture in a single layer over waxed paper, and allow to cool completely.
     
  4. Break mix into smaller pieces, and store in zipper food storage bags or an air-tight storage container.  Makes 3 1/2 cups snack mix.

This is such a smart idea. Who would not like to get a treat like this any time of the year? I like the idea that the gift is "homemade" and very affordable indeed. If you plan on doing this for a large group, it would be adorable to "decorate" you jars too.

What a cute and creative gift idea! This would be a fun one to do with your kids to give to family. It is really affordable and something that I think the recipient would really appreciate. You can dress up the present with a nice ribbon and a hand written gift tag. You can also substitute ingredients to suit your specific gift needs. Yummy and cute. What more could you want?

I absolutely love this recipe! It's a great idea to give for a teachers gift or to co-workers. I love that you can switch out the candy etc to personalize and make them different! You could do a similar idea as a trail mix too - no need to actually melt the chocolate! It can be a portable snack that great for road trips, after school snack, etc. Layering the ingredients makes it look really pretty and with a nice ribbon and label it's a fast and easy gift that is sure to be much appreciated! You could even just layer candy and nuts!

I'm giving this Blizzard Bites in a Jar a five-star rating. First it is a great gift idea for any occasion actually. You can just place the recipient's favorite candies, snacks like pretzels, cereals, and others then top it with white chocolate. Wow. I'm sure she/he will really appreciate it. Besides, it's also very personalized. Ssecond point, this is great snacks while traveling, whether on a road trip on a boat or on a plane. Anytime that you feel hungry pangs, then you can just dip your hands in that snack jar.
