Ingredients
  1. 9 Cups of Chex Cereal
  2. 1 Cup of Chocolate Chips
  3. 1/2 Cup of Peanut Butter
  4. ¼ Cup of Butter (I prefer unsalted)
  5. 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  6. 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
  7. ½ to 1 Bag of Valentine’s Day M&M’s (depending how much you love M&Ms)
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl place all your Chex cereal.
  2. In a medium sized pan place chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter and melt over medium heat. Be sure to stir continuously. Once everything is close to melted add your vanilla.
  3. Next pour mixture over the Chex cereal and mix together. The best way I have found to do this is to use a spatula to mix, and push the cereal down so everything gets mixed well.
  4. Place your powdered sugar into a large zip-lock baggie.
  5. Place covered cereal in large baggie with powdered sugar and shake until completely covered with powder sugar. Allow to cereal mixture to sit in baggie for 5 to 10 minutes and cool.
  6. Remove from baggie and place in your large mixing bowl.
  7. I always shake bowl around for a few mintues. It helps all the extra powder sugar fall to the bottom of the bowl. Then place Muddy Buddies in serving dish, or storage baggie.
  8. Before placing in serving dish I like to place back into the large mixing bowl I was using and shake around the freshly powdered Muddy Buddies to make all extra powder sugar fall to the bottom of the bowl. Then I will move to serving dish, or place in zip lock for storage.

First you will need to grab a large mixing bowl, and place your Chex cereal in it.

In a medium-sized pan you will place your chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter.  Melt over a medium heat, be sure to stir consistently.  When your mixture is almost melted add the vanilla extract, and stir together until completely melted.  Be careful, it’s hot!  LOL, yes I burn myself almost every single time during this step for some reason.

Continue to pour mixture over cereal and mix until all cereal is covered as even as possible.

The best way I have found to make sure everything is covered evenly,  is to use a spatula to mix, and slide across the top of the cereal.

    THANK YOU so much for sharing this recipe. I hate to say it but I have a terrible habit of just doing all the baking with the grand kids just watching and I have been working on saying to HECK WITH IT and just let them have fun, throw flour, chocolate chips or whatever just to see them smile. This recipe sounds so good and the pictures really help because I am one of those people that need to see things. I am hoping my grand kids will be down around Valentines Day and that the kids and I could do this together. I am hoping that Muddy Buddies can be the start of a new tradition and can be passed down.

    I htought you were kidding with something called “Muddy Buddies.” – but then I goggled it and found out they are quite popular. And since my Mom LOVES chocolate, PB and chex, I’ll make her a batch when I visit her this weekend. Yum-oh!
