Sometimes, you just need a classic treat from when you were a kid, and the memory of Chex Muddy Buddies has been calling me for weeks! I mean, the peanut butter, the chocolate, the powdered sugar. YUM! And when you’re in the middle of a stressful time for everyone, sometimes you just need a reminder of simpler times.
After having the ingredients on hand for weeks, I finally decided…it was time! I don’t know what I’d been waiting for. So I called my daughter into the kitchen and we made up a batch in about 15 minutes–even with her doing most of the work.
I’d suggest you stick to the original recipe, because it’s just sooooooo good! But, my husband is mildly allergic to peanut butter, so we used sunflower butter instead. It tastes pretty close to the original and has the same consistency, so it all incorporates just the same. Not quiiiiiite as good, but these are the sacrifices we make for love ; )
Once you melt the ingredients together, it’s important to mix the chocolate mixture and cereal well, otherwise the powdered sugar won’t stick, and no one likes that. Even when it looks like you can’t cover any more pieces and you don’t have enough chocolate mix, you do. Keep stirring gently!
Once you add the powdered sugar it’s time to shake it baby! Get that sugar onto every piece and make it mouth-wateringly delicious! But don’t shake toooooo hard, you don’t want to break your pieces!
That’s it! Really, super easy and fast to put together, and oh, so delicious! Ours would’ve been gone in under an hour if I didn’t give everyone separate servings.
9 cups Chex cereal
1/4 cup butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter (or sunflower butter)
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
How long will yours last?
