Springtime Recipes: Muddy Buddies | March 2017

Hello, Everyone!!

I am finally on Spring Break! I have been lazing around, cuddling my dog, and making some chocolatey treats.

Speaking of chocolate, I have a very fast and easy, Spring-ready snack recipe. As a kid, I would always have “muddy buddies” (some call it Puppy Chow). It is a crunchy, chocolatey, peanut buttery snack, and it only takes around 15 minutes to make.

The fun part of this recipe is that you can really customize it. This week I decided to take a Springtime approach to this recipe with cute little chocolate eggs. I, also, customized it to make it vegan (except for the chocolate eggs).


Let’s get into the recipe:

Here is what you will need:

  • microwave safe bowl
  • spatula
  • gallon size Ziploc bag


2 cups of Chex cereal (Rice or Corn)

1/2 cup of vegan chocolate chips

1 tbsp (heaped) of peanut butter (You can even try using Nutella or any other nut butters)

1/3 cup of powdered sugar

a handful of chocolate eggs (optional)


  1. In a microwave safe bowl, melt down the chocolate chips. Then stir in the peanut butter.
  2. In a large bowl put the cereal and chocolate/peanut butter mixture and carefully fold them in together.
  3. Once completely combined, pour mixture into a large gallon Ziploc and add the powdered sugar.
  4. Close the bag, but leave some air inside. And shake the bag so that the powdered sugar coats the cereal pieces.
  5. Once completely combined and coated, pour into a cute bowl and top with a handful of chocolate eggs. AND Enjoy!!IMG_8420

I told you this recipe was super easy and quick to prepare. It is perfect for parties or even as a gift. If you put this mixture into a mason jar and add a festive ribbon, it is a perfect gift or party favor.
