Muddy Buddies

Before a home game, our team has a dinner for a multitude of reasons. Originally team dinners started out as pasta dinners where we would all eat lots of carbs to build energy for our game. However, they have developed into more of a bonding experience were along with pasta we eat many other delicious dishes. I normally bring these for desert because firstly they taste absolutely amazing and secondly, they are super easy.

Muddy buddies have so many names but basically they are Chex cereal coated in peanut butter and chocolate and topped with powdered sugar. Making these could not be easier but I must warn you they are messy, my mom was not a fan of the mess.

Place 9 cups of Chex cereal of any variety into a LARGE bowl.

Then in a microwave safe bowl toss in 1 cup of chocolate chips (mix of semi-sweet and milk), half a cup of peanut butter and half a stick (1/4 cup) of butter.

Microwave for a minute and stir until smooth. If not completely melting place in the microwave for another 15-30 seconds.
Pour the entire chocolate peanut butter (choco-peanutter hahaha) mixture on top of the Chex and mix until all Chex has the chocolate-y coating.

You can either just dig your hands right in for the messy, yet kid friendly approach or take a large spoon and mix.
After all the Chex are coated toss into a Ziploc bag.

Add in about 2 cups of powdered sugar. SEAL THE BAG.

And then SEAL THE BAG AGAIN. Make sure the bag is closed before you begin to shake it. (I had a malfunction yesterday and ended up with powdered sugar on me.

After just place the Muddy Buddies into a tubbleware for serving. If any seem to not be covered in powdered sugar add some more in. Also add in some m&m’s for some extra color.

Recipe is on the Chex website.
