Throughout the holidays I am constantly making snacks and goodies that are kid friendly. One of the kids favorite snacks that I usually only make around the holiday season is Chex’s Muddy Buddy Mix! A great mix of my two favorite things: Chocolate and Peanut Butter!
This recipe is simple, yet is a great item to have out for munching that everyone just loves!

9 Cups Chocolate Chex
1 Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Peanut Butter
1/4 Cup Butter
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar
In a large mixing bowl, measure out the 9 cups of Chex mix and set aside.
In a medium sized microwave safe bowl, microwave the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter on high for 1 minute and then stir. Microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring each time until mixture is smooth and stirs easily. Stir in the vanilla.
Pour the chocolate and peanut butter mixture over of the cereal and stir until the cereal is coated evenly.
Add half the powdered sugar into a 2 gallon resealable plastic bag, add in the cereal and add the remaining powdered sugar. Seal the bag and shake well until coated.
On a baking sheet covered with wax paper, spread out the mixture in order to cool. Once completely cooled store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
