Chex Muddy Buddies

Since it’s House Party Weekend, you’re probably going to want something to snack on throughout the weekend. Most of you probably remember the chocolatey, sweet goodness that is “muddy buddies” from when you were younger, and it’s so easy to make. You can make it quickly Friday in the afternoon and enjoy your snack all weekend long, or however long it lasts. Happy baking!

 

Ingredients:

9 cups rice Chex or corn Chex (or a combination)

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

 

Directions:

1. Measure cereal into large bowl; set aside.

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

3. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in an airtight container in your refrigerator.
