MilkyWay Muddy Buddies

Recently I was invited to a baby shower for a sweet friend of mine (so excited!). I asked her what her favorite candy bar is and when she told me "MilkyWay", I decided to make MilkyWay Muddy Buddies to bring to the shower. Very recently, I gave up anything with sugar in it for a very long time so, I haven't tasted these. However, my husband and Judah are perfect for taste testing and according to them, the recipe is delicious!!!
 MilkyWay Muddy Buddies
9 cups Chex cereal
1/4 cup Butter
3 MilkWay candy bars
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 cups powdered sugar

On very low heat, melt the butter, candy bars and peanut butter, stirring frequently. While they are melting, measure the Chex cereal into a large bowl. After the butter, candy and peanut butter are completely melted, pour the mixture over the cereal. Stir very well, to coat all of the cereal. Add the powdered sugar to the coated cereal and stir. The directions on the Chex box say to put this mixture into a large ziplock bag and then shake, to thoroughly coat the cereal. I didn't have any bags large enough so, I covered my bowl with plastic wrap and then carefully shook the bowl around. 

Next, dump the Muddy Buddies onto waxed paper and allow to cool (although, I'm sure they would taste pretty good warm, also!!).

    Also your transparency in sharing is very heart warming.

  2. These would be so addicting! I could go for a few handfuls right about now!! Love the recipe!!

  3. Wow, they look yummy! I'm sorry you didn't get to share them with lots of people, but i bet your family loved that!

  4. Those sound delicious...I haven't made that in years...which is good because I'd probably eat it all myself! Good for you for going no-sugar; I don't think I could do it!

  5. My family will love this! All that chocolaty, sugary, peanutbuttery goodness--I'm going to pin it too! Thanks for sharing it at Teach Me Tuesday!
    PS. Good job giving up the sugar! That has to be so good for you!

  8. Looks delicious - I wonder if you could substitute something for the peanut butter. With so many people with a nut allergy it's hard to find delicious treats like this that doesn't have peanut butter.

    1. You could definitely leave out the peanut butter. Just add about a 1/2 cup or so of chocolate chips instead, or really anything else that sounds good to you!

  9. Yummy! And score for me - two different kinds of muddy buddies in one week :) I can't wait to try these out!
