Candy Cane Peppermint Puppy Chow

I had leftover candy canes and Chex cereal left over from making Chex Mix, so when I found this recipe, I knew I needed to make it. It may be difficult finding peppermint baking chips. Look for them anyway because this recipe is delicious.

I decided to post it so I can put it on my Christmas baking and making page for next year.
