Chex Muddy Buddies Snack Mix Recipe

We love the Chex brand of cereals and have been eating them for years. A few years ago when they released their Chex Muddy Buddies Snack Mix Recipe, I knew I had to make it and now it has become a family favorite! I bet I make this recipe at least once every 6-8 weeks and both the kids and adults just love it!

Note: When I make this recipe I use 3 cups of each of the 3 different flavors of Chex cereal listed below. In addition, I sometimes toss in some miniature marshmallows or M&M's candies too. My sister likes to break up small hard pretzel sticks and toss them into her batch when she makes it so get creative and toss in whatever your kids like.

Chex Muddy Buddies Snack Mix Recipe

9 cups Rice Chex, Corn Chex or Chocolate Chex Cereal
1 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup Smooth Peanut Butter
1/4 cup Butter or Margarine
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 cups Confectioner's (powdered) Sugar

In a large mixing bowl measure out your 9 cups of Chex cereal. You will need a very large mixing bowl so make sure you plan out appropriately.

In a medium microwave-safe bowl, microwave the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter, uncovered on HIGH for 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture has thoroughly melted and is smooth. Stir in the vanilla extract until combined. Pour this mixture over the top of the cereal mix, stirring until all of the cereal is well-coated in the chocolate mixture.

Pour the Confectioner's sugar into the bowl and stir until all of the cereal is coated lightly with the powdered sugar. You can also toss everything into a large 2-gallon plastic food storage bag and shake it all together but I find it easier to do in a large mixing bowl.

Once everything is mixed together store in an airtight bowl, snack canister or in food storage bags.

Who wouldn't love this snack, but I think I would add cocoa to the mix since I am a chocoholic.
