Spring Muddy Buddies
Large Party Size Recipe
*5 cups Rice Chex
*5 cups Corn Chex
*1 cup Dark Chocolate Chips or Semi-Sweet
*3 1/2 tablespoons Butter
*3/4 cup Peanut Butter
*1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
*2 cups Mini Colorful Marshmallows, Kraft Jet-Puffed FunMallows
*1 cup Cashew Pieces, optional
*2 cups Reese’s Puff Bunnies, or Regular Reese’s Puffs Cereal
*4 ounce box Mini Robin Eggs, Whoppers
*3/4 cup Milk Chocolate Chips
*3 1/4 cups Powdered Sugar
*3 gallon sized resealable bags
Melt dark chocolate chips in a double boiler on medium-low heat. Then add butter, peanut butter and vanilla. Stir until melted.
In an extra-large mixing bowl add the Chex Cereals and pour over the chocolate mixture and stirring carefully, so not to crush the Chex cereal, stir until cereal is all coated. I like to use 3 gallon sized bags add 1/3 of the powdered sugar and 1/3 of the coated Chex mixture. Seal up bags and shake until clear all is totally coated.
Then pour back into extra-large mixing bowl: Muddy buddies, marshmallows, cashews, Reese’s Puffs, mini robin eggs, milk chocolate chips. Toss together and store in an airtight container or in resealable bags.
