Olaf is such a fun character that is full of sweetness and joy. That is exactly what I wanted the mix to be, too. I carefully selected each ingredient to represent the lovable snowman, while still staying tasty.
– Rice Chex.
– Snowflake pretzels.
– White Chocolate.
– Sprinkles. I found snowman and snowflake sprinkles. I also added in the orange sprinkles to represent his carrot nose and the blue sprinkles just because it’s a fun pop of color.
– Mini Marshmallows.
– Mini Chocolate Chips.
– Blue Sugar Sprinkles.
Lay out your Chex cereal on a piece of wax paper. Melt your chocolate and put it in a sandwich bag. Cut off a corner of the bag and drizzle your Chex with the chocolate. Add some blue sugar sprinkles for some extra Frozen magic. The best part is, not even the Duke of Weselton will accuse you of witchcraft because of this magic!
Let the chocolate harden up in the fridge. That should only take a few minutes. Place your Chex on a plate or in a baggie and then add in your other ingredients and mix it up. That’s it. It really is that simple.
Bug is a huge Frozen fan so it wasn’t a surprise that she was thrilled with this Olaf snack mix. She loved exploring all the different ingredients. I heard extra giggles when she found the snowmen sprinkles.
Bear’s favorite part was the snowflakes pretzels which is surprising since he doesn’t usually like pretzels. (By the way, I found those at Wal-Mart.)
Bean loved the cereal. I think he might have a new favorite.
I would call that a success. It is always a good feeling when you get smiles and giggles from putting together a treat like this. And it lasted about as long as a snowman doing whatever snow does in summer.
