I love making Muddy Buddies because it is quick and easy and you can fill your sweet tooth with chocolate!
I melted 1 cup milk chocolate chips, 1/4 cup margarine, 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter in a pan. Once melted I removed it from the heat and stirred in 1 tsp. vanilla. Then I poured the melted mixture on top of my cereal.
Once the cereal was coated with the chocolate/peanut butter mixture, I poured the covered cereal into a ziploc bag that had 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar.
I shook the bag to coat the cereal with the powdered sugar. Once it was fully coated, I added in another 1/2 cup powdered sugar to finish coating it.
Now it is ready to eat! All total it took me about 10 minutes from start to finish!
With the holidays coming, I am going to be adding this to my list of "go to" appetizers/munchies to have on hand for when guests are visiting! I love that this recipe is kid friendly as well! Most of my kids will eat it and most of them know how to fix it without a lot of help from me!
Here is the full recipe:
8-9 cups Chex cereal
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup margarine
1 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2-2 cups powdered sugar
Pour cereal into a big mixing bowl. In a separate bowl or pan, melt peanut butter, margarine, and chocolate chips together. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla. Pour melted mixture on to the cereal, stir carefully until all the cereal is evenly coated. Put powdered sugar into a gallon ziploc bag(or even a paper grocery bag), pour coated cereal into the bag, close bag and shake until cereal is coated with powdered sugar. Add in more powdered sugar if needed, and shake the bag again. Open bag and enjoy!
