Muddy Buddies


Muddy Buddies, Puppy Chow, Reindeer Chow - whatever you call this, it is good stuff!  My brother-in-law recently moved out to Colorado, and  I was looking for a treat that would be good to mail to him.  I knew I wanted to make a type of candy or snack mix and these Muddy Buddies popped in my mind.  I haven't made Muddy Buddies in ages.  I forgot how good this stuff is!  What's not to like - peanut butter, chocolate, powdered sugar.  I am going to make sure this is on our Christmas snack list from now on.


Muddy Buddies
(Printable Recipe)

9 cups Corn Chex®, Rice Chex®, Wheat Chex® or Chocolate Chex® cereal (or combination)

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.

In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.

  5. Seriously, I can't believe I've never made Muddy Buddies. I don't know what's taking me so long, but I'm feeling that this Christmas will be the year.

  7. LOL, yeah, Puppy Chow is what Brett and his girlfriend called it.

  8. Using Crispix rather than Chex gives it a slightly airier but more substantial texture. (Somehow, that statement makes sense. Just trust me on this one.)

  9. ADT - I will give it a try. I might brave the grocery store today and try it. Thanks for the tip!

  10. The real way to elevate these to insanely good is to sub 1/2 the chocolate chips with butterscotch chips. A-MAZ-ING!

  11. Aimee - that sounds amazing! I am going to try that next time I make these. Thanks!

  12. I love how you say that this should be stored....There is no way if I make this that it would even get put into a storage container. My children would have this gone in about 12 minutes and the only reason it would take that long is because someone would have to stop for milk :)

    Can't wait to try it out tomorrow.

  13. Try substituting Golden Grahams for the cereal! You won't regret it!

  14. Just a tip I would like to add when a recipe calls for a certain amount of a product like the Chex Mix for the recipe it might be nice to let people know how many boxes of the cereal a person would need to buy for the recipe. Some people have been making this stuff for a while and knows this, but a new person wouldn't know how many cups will come out of a standard size box of Chex Mix.
