CHEX Muddy Buddies #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?

How to Make CHEX Muddy Buddy:

  1. In a large bowl, measure the Chex cereal and set it aside.
  2. In a 1-quart microwavable bowl, combine the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter. Leave it uncovered and microwave on High for 1 minute. Stir the mixture and microwave for an additional 30 seconds or until the mixture can be stirred smoothly. Stir in the vanilla.
