Holiday Treats - Muddy Buddies

It's one of those days where I find myself negotiating with a teenage daughter via text messaging and wondering - "When did I get old enough to have a teenager to negotiate with?"

It's a good thing I had this easy yummy treat to distract me from such a thought. :)

These are super easy and I pulled the recipe straight from Betty Crocker's website. (Their picture is better than mine. :)


8 cups Corn Chex® (They say nine cups but eight works better)
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.
