Grinch Muddy Buddies 

  • 9 cups rice Chex
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips 
  • 6 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • Green food coloring
  • Powdered sugar
  • Heart sprinkles 

Home Alone Pull-Apart Pizza

  • 8 cheese sticks (mozzarella)
  • 1 lb premade pizza dough
  • Parchment paper
  • Egg wash
  • Garlic butter 
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Herb medley 


Grinch Muddy Buddies

In a bowl, combine white chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter. Microwave on high and stir until fully mixed. 

Split the mixture into two bowls, and add a few drops of green food coloring to one of the halves.

Pour both mixtures into two bowls of rice Chex and combine until Chex are coated evenly. 

Pour both Chex mixtures into separate plastic bags, and add powdered sugar to both bags. Shake until powdered sugar coats Chex evenly. 

Add heart sprinkles and enjoy! 

Home Alone Pull-Apart Pizza

Chop mozzarella cheese sticks into even, 1-inch chunks. 

Pull off a small piece of pizza dough and shape into a 1-inch round. Press 1 chunk of mozzarella into center of dough ball and re-shape into circle. Repeat until all cheese and dough is used. 

Place dough balls on baking sheet (use parchment paper to avoid sticking) in the shape of a Christmas tree. Coat with egg wash on top and sides, and bake at 450°F for 20 minutes. 

Coat pizza in garlic butter on top and sides. Sprinkle with grated or shredded parmesan cheese and herb medley. 

Serve hot with marinara sauce and your favorite holiday film!
