This recipe is so easy NO ONE can mess it up! But I do have a few tricks to make it easier and a tiny bit more delicious 😉
This is so easy you will memorize the recipe and keep some on hand all the time (for emergencies only, of course). I use plain ole rice chex, but I am sure you could us any kind you prefer. The nicest thing about this recipe also is you can customize it any way you want! Add, change out, use what you have on hand, whatever you want, the options are endless!
Oh, yea, and I forgot… we DO NOT call them Muddy Buddies – it is Puppy Chow all the way!
Puppy Chow Recipe (Muddy Buddies)
Most people call them Muddy Buddies, but we prefer Puppy Chow! A standard recipe with a few pointers to make it easier and fool proof.
In a microwave safe bowl, add chocolate chips, peanut butter, butter and vanilla
Microwave on 50% power until all melted and smooth.
(note: heating on full power may scotch the chocolate. Also, heating too much/hot will scotch the chocolate, once the bowl is too hot to handle and chocolate is soft but still lumpy, remove from microwave and stir with a spatula until chocolate is fully melted)
In an over-sized bowl, put chex mix and pour melted chocolate over it.
Gently mix with a wooden spoon until all cereal is coated with chocolate.
In a gallon bag, pour 1 cup of powdered sugar. Then add the chocolate coated. Then add the remaining cup of powdered sugar.
Shake bag until completely coated.
Keep in freezer or refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
