Things You Should Make Not Buy
The Muddy Buddy recipe is my favorite, and I was dying for some today, so I grabbed a bag at the store.
What a disappointment.
I will never do that again.
It was just lacking something. Maybe a good peanut butter taste or the sloppy coating of powdered sugar.
I don't know, but the stuff in the stores = ick!
If you want Chex Muddy Buddies...
MAKE IT YOURSELF!
It is totally worth it, and very easy.
9 cups Rice Chex®, Corn Chex® or Chocolate Chex® cereal (or combination)
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; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
