Today was spent making little goodie bags for the neighbors for Christmas...full of all kinds of goodies...snack mix, clementines, candy, cookies, and my favorite Chex mix...I know this Chex mix goes by a few names, I've heard it called Reindeer Poop, White Trash...but the recipe on the box of Chex calls it Muddy Buddies...whatever you call it, I love this stuff...and it's so easy to make...and since I'm sort of hung up on step by step photos, here goes...
Microwave the chocolate chips, peanut butter,
and butter. Stir in the vanilla.
Pour over the cereal and mix until combined.
Coat with powdered sugar and spread out on wax paper to cool.
Muddy Buddies Chex Mix
9 cups Chex cereal (I used Rice Chex)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
In a large bowl, measure the cereal; set aside. In a 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until the mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over over cereal; stirring until evenly coated. Pour into a 2-gallon resealable plastic food storage bag. Add the powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
