Reindeer Mix

Taken from Real Moms Kitchen
I adore reindeer mix, the sweet and the salty combo is so titillating for my taste buds.  I've taken an old traditional recipe and recreated the ingredients into something a tiny bit, okay, a LOT healthier for you. hehe, by using white yogurt chips instead of white chocolate chips, you've reduced the amount of calories, sodium and cholesterol in this snack mix.  Not to mention, yogurt is high in protein and potassium where, white chocolate has extra fats instead of extra healthy benefits.  Also, by removing the traditional, m&m's and roasted peanuts and adding pistachio and dried cranberries instead, you're getting a nutrient dense snack that includes a considerable amount of vitamins and minerals such as iron, copper, magnesium and vitamin B6 just to name a few.  Not only is this snack great tasting, but it's actually very good for your body. 

1 lb White Yogurt chips
3 cup Rice Chex
3 cup Wheat Chex
2 cup Whole Wheat pretzel sticks or waffles.
1 1/2 cup rough chopped Pistachio Nuts
1 cup rough chopped Dried Cranberries

You can make this in two different ways.  Traditionally, the yogurt chips will be melted in a microwave safe bowl using 30 second intervals, stirring and repeating until completely melted.  Pour the melted yogurt oven the rest of the mixed chex and pretzels and stir until it is all covered as evenly as possibly. While it's still warm, pour the nuts and craisins into bowl and stir until it's all combined.
Pour it all into a bowl, and toss until they are all blended well, keeping the yogurt chips whole.
Either way, it taste great.
