Last week I posted instructions for Dreamsicle Cookies in a Jar. These recipes in a jar make great, economical holiday gifts and this week I am posting another one from the really interesting website organizedhome.com. This is one for people who aren't that crazy about cooking - all you have to do is melt some chocolate chips in the microwave and you're good to go!
Blizzard Bites in a Jar:
1 c. RiceChex cereal
1 c. small pretzel twists
1/2 c. dry roasted peanuts
1/3 c. Craisins-type dried cranberries
1/3 c. coarsely-chopped dried pineapple
1 c. white chocolate chips
1 quart wide-mouth canning jar with lid and ring
1 small food storage bag
Layer the ingredients in the jar in the following manner: Rice Chex, pretzels, peanuts, dried cranberries and dried pineapple.
Put the white chocolate chips in the storage bag and place on top on the ingredients.
Put the lid and ring on the jar and attach the instruction tag.
Remove the white chocolate chips from jar. Pour the other ingredients into a large bowl and mix.
Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for about 30 seconds, then stir till melted. If more time is needed, check at 15 second intervals. Pour the chocolate over the other ingredients and mix very thoroughly. Spread in a single layer on wax paper and let cool. Break into smaller pieces and store in air-tight container or food storage bags.
