I have a new favorite puppy chow. Excuse me, muddy buddies. (Why can’t we call it puppy chow? Oh, yeah, because no one in Washington seems to have any idea what I’m talking about when I say puppy chow.)
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Muddy Buddies:
Muddy buddies made with peanut butter, milk chocolate, and Reese’s peanut butter chips. Reese’s peanut butter cups. A dash of Reese’s pieces. Heaven.
It’s easy to make. Trust me. If you have kids, they can toss the chex in the powdered sugar…just make sure the Ziploc is sealed tight!
Question for you: Next month I’m going to try out a new muddy buddies recipes. What would you guys like to see? Andes mint? Apple Pie? Twix? Cinnamon Roll?

Pour chocolate Chex into large mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl, melt 3/4 C. peanut butter chips, 3/4 C. milk chocolate chips, 1 C. peanut butter, & 1/6 C. butter [half of butter called for in recipe]. Microwave for 30 seconds at 50% power. Stir well. Repeat until melted.
Pour peanut butter/chocolate over Chex. (Might not use all of it). Stir gently to coat all of the cereal.
In a gallon Ziploc bag- add 1 C. powdered sugar & half of coated Chex. Gently toss, breaking apart any clumps, until well-coated and they don’t stick. Spread out on a cookie sheet to dry.
In same bag- add another cup powdered sugar and other half of coated Chex. Repeat process to coat. Spread out on cookie sheet to dry.
Pour vanilla Chex into a large mixing bowl.
~~Repeat steps 2 through 5 with the vanilla Chex.~~
While Chex is drying, cut (or break) Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures in half.
After everything is dry, layer (or toss together) in a large bowl. Use as many peanut butter cups and candies as you prefer- you may not use them all.
(I would set aside some for yourself because these will disappear quickly!)
