Some of you may know this recipe by the name “Puppy Chow” but since we used the recipe on the back of our Rice Chex cereal we will call it by their name “Muddy Buddies.”
My daughter had to make this for a class project so we thought we would share it with you.
9 cups Rice Chex™
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. Into large bowl measure cereal; set aside.
2. 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. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
3. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag and shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
If we were to offer up any tips, it would be to use two bowls and divide up the cereal and chocolate mixture – It makes it easier to coat. We did the same thing when we put them into gallon Ziploc bags to shake on the powder sugar.
The whole process was quite simple and we honestly had a great time as a family making Muddy Buddies. Seems like a great party snack!
