Muddy Buddies

General Mills sent us a big box for Christmas with all of the things we needed to make a long-time holiday treat, Muddy Buddies.

The funny thing is that I used to make these all the time.  I guess they just fell off my radar, as recipes tend to do over time.  We bagged *most of*  them up and took them in to the front office staffs at our schools!

As for the rest, well we enjoyed those at home.  :-)

Muddy Buddies (Gluten Free)

9 cups Rice Chex
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

  • Place cereal in large mixing bowl; set aside.
  • Place chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered into microwavable bowl. Microwave 1 minute on High. 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.  (I split mine between two 1-gallon bags)
  • Pour powdered sugar into bag with cereal mixture. Seal bag. Shake until well coated. Spread on parchment paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

You can find more Chex recipes HERE.  Thank you General Mills for always sending the best packages!

I hope that you are continuing to enjoy this holiday season.  We’ve been taking it nice and slow since getting back from Savannah.

  1. While I make and give lots of Chex Mix over the holidays (using the original recipe from the 60’s), I have yet to try this version.
    It always looks yummy on the box.

    Your photo of the bowlful is darling…as are those tags! <3
    Bring on 2018 and the cinnamon jelly hearts!!

    Happy New Year!

  2. I made 5 batches of these this year and if I hadn’t gotten tired of baking, I was also making other goodies, would have made 6. Oldest son asked me when his second batch was coming!! lol I make one batch each for four of my grandsons with one batch for the son.
