CHEX Muddy Buddy Recipe

Recipes are funny. We use them, and they get in our rotation, and then, over time, they get forgotten. I started making CHEX Muddy Buddy in the early 1990s for Jake and Zac. I remember it was all the time stored in our pantry. Then, life took off, and I stopped making it. I just found it again in a cookbook I was browsing—my handwritten note with a 5-star rating.

Guess what’s back in the recipe rotation?
