Muddy Buddies

If you are looking for that quick chocolate fix; this a great snack! Plus, it is fast and easy!

*I usually halve this recipe; and it makes plenty for the two of us – or a perfect size for when friends come over, but if you are looking to make it and give some to friends/family or take it into work etc. you may want to make the entire batch.*

What you will need:

9 cups of Crispix cereal (American’s can use Chex)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
½ cup of peanut butter (I sometimes use Reese’s chips if I have them on hand and they work well)
¼ cup margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cup powdered sugar


Measure cereal into a large bowl;
In a separate bowl, add the chocolate chips, peanut butter/or Reese’s chips and margarine. Microwave on high for 1 minute – stir until smooth; then add the vanilla – stir and pour over the cereal.
Stir the mixture until evenly coated with the chocolate mixture.
Then, place half of this mixture on a large piece of parchment paper – sprinkle with powdered sugar until nicely covered; then add remaining chocolate mixture on top of this and sprinkle with powdered sugar again until covered. Let this sit for a few minutes, then mix up the mixture and add more powdered sugar until covered nicely.
Place in an air tight container for storage or a nice serving dish if you can’t wait to eat it! :)

We have Crispix in America. :) (or are you saying that you don't have Chex?)


Hi Kara,
Nice to see you on here - no, we Canadians don't have Chex...and I've read in most places for snacks like these Chex are used often times.


LOVE these!! yes they're "kid-friendly" but I could devour one whole bowl at a time!!
I've also done renditions people like to call "reindeer poop" hahah

I was on a hiatus for a while so it's good to be back and connect with my fellow foodies!! :)
Love the new header! I'll have to update it on my blogroll!
