Peppermint Muddy Buddies

I wanted to give my neighbors something in addition to the Hot Chocolate Mix. I decided to make them Muddy Buddies for two reasons. The first being because they are inexpensive to make and secondly because they taste absolutely wonderful.  However, with me being me I couldn’t just make regular Muddy Buddies. I had to add my own little twist to make them more Christmas-ie. (Ok that’s not a real thing but you know what I mean.) I  decided to make Peppermint Muddy Buddies. This is a great recipe to involve your little ones. It’s easy and doesn’t create a huge mess. Let’s get started.  IMG_9832

Here’s what you’ll need:

9 Cups Rice Chex

1 Cup of Semisweet Chocolate Chips or Mint Chocolate Chips

1/2 Cup of Peanut Butter

1/4 Cup of Butter

1 Tsp of Vanilla

1/2 Cup of Crushed Peppermint Candy

1 1/2 Cup of Powdered Sugar

 

In a large bowl measure out 9 Cups of Rice Chex and set it aside. Next in  a medium sized, microwaveable bowl add the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter. Place in the Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir. Continue to microwave the chocolate mixture in 15 second intervals until it’s smooth. IMG_9828

Stir in the vanilla and crushed peppermint. IMG_9833

Then pour it over the cereal and stir until the Chex are covered.IMG_9834IMG_6820

Place the coated Chex in a gallon bag and add the powdered sugar. Close the bag and shake it, until they are covered. IMG_9839 IMG_9840

Next you’ll spread them out on a baking pan to cool.

Then store them in an airtight container or ziplock bag. Enjoy but be warned these are addictive.
