Muddy Buddies

Some people call them Muddy Buddies, some call it Puppy Chow, but I call it yummy! This is a super easy snack to have out for people to munch on during the holidays. It involves peanut butter, chocolate and sugar so needless to say it's not baby friendly :)

I don't like missing out on American recipes just because we don't get the ingredients here in the UK so I was super happy that this recipe worked with my little substitution! If you want to make this just for yourself and not a party then half the recipe!

Muddy Buddies from Betty

9 cups Chex® or Shreddies cereal
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1) In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth.

2) Stir in vanilla.

3) Add cereal into mixture stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.

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