Muddy Buddies or Monkey Munch!

One of our favorite snacks and the recipe is right on the back of the Chex Cereal box, but if you've never noticed it or tried it, you don't know what you're missing.

You may have heard it mentioned on the Jon and Kate Plus 8 show, Kate makes it for the kids all the time.

So here we go....a quick and easy snack and I'm thinking wrapped in some pretty paper and tied with a ribbon would also make a cute gift.


Muddy Buddies
Origin: Chex Cereal
Yield: 18 servings (1/2 cup each
Prep Time: 15 min

● 1/4 cup butter or margarine
● 1 tsp. 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.
