Things You Should Make Not Buy

I love Chex Mix. It is one of my favorite snack foods of the holiday. I usually make it for New Year's Eve.

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...


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.
