chex muddy buddies

Family traditions! We made this at home growing up and usually gave (give) containers of it away to friends. Logan and I ate it non-stop once we'd made it. In college I made it with my roommates who called it "Puppy Chow." That name weirds Taylor out and he refuses to try it. ...that and the involvement of peanut butter. Typical.

Chex Muddy Buddies
9 cups Corn Chex
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.
In 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. Do not overheat. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Add more powdered sugar until well coated and white. Store in airtight container.
Hello, heaven.


  1. Yay!! Family Traditions! Dad says it's un-American to not like peanut butter!
    That's OK Taylor, we'll all eat your portion!

  2. While browsing your blog this morning I was inspired to make this, so now I have a big bowl of goodness that will probably ruin my dinner! Thank you!
