Giftable Blizzard Bites are the ultimate holiday snack mix made perfectly giftable with the help of a handy mason jar. Made with Chex mix, pretzels, M&Ms and a few other tasty ingredients, this is one of the easiest gifts you can give this year. It takes almost no effort at all to throw these ingredients together in a jar and hand out to all your closest friends this year. It's also a great gift for school teachers, pastors, or your local mail man. No matter the reason, these delicious, little, sweet and salty, snack jars are sure to be appreciated this holiday season.


  • 1 cup Rice Chex cereal
  • 1 cup pretzel twists, small
  • 1/2 cup dry-roasted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries

  2. Place white chocolate chips on top of the layered ingredients.

This recipe is a great gift idea and a delicious snack mix. I like the sweet and salty combo and adding cranberries is a nice touch. I will fill mason jars and attach home made gift tags with ribbons. I like to make something other than traditional Chex mix recipes.

This would be a great recipe to put in some parchment paper, roll up and cut into slices...these days there are so many different Chex flavors you could probably make several different varieties just using the flavors that go with each Chex cereal and have a smorgasbord of goodies for a rainy day or to give away. I'd probably break up the pretzels a little and maybe add a little peanut butter and then coat them in the melted chocolate. Yum!

Not only is this a great idea for a gift but it is also a great idea for a lunch box treat. I would love to receive something like this though as a gift. Not only that, it is a great and novel gift to give. Also its not too expensive.
