Chex® Muddy Buddies®

A couple of days ago, my boys and I were bored and wanted a sweet treat. I found all the ingredients for this recipe in my pantry and it kept us busy in the kitchen for a little while. It is a easy recipe for the kids to help practice their measuring skills and the cooking only involves the microwave. One of my sons is not a peanut butter fan so we just made a small batch without peanut butter for him and it turned out fine.

Chex® Muddy Buddies®

9 cups Corn Chex®, Rice Chex®, Wheat 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.
