Eat Drink & Be Mary: Halloween Muddy Buddy Mix

Halloween Muddy Buddy Mix


Y'all I know I'm not going to be the only one to say this butttttt....where did September go?!  It's seriously blowing my mind that we're already nine months into this year.  Don't blink, when you open your eyes it'll probably be New Years Day!

Tomorrow is the first day of October, which means two things: my birthday and Halloween.  And since it's never too early to start looking forward to a holiday filled with dressing up and candy, I've already started brainstorming Halloween treat ideas.  First up, this Muddy Buddy mix.  


M&Ms has totally out done themselves lately, coming up with every flavor imaginable.  Way better than plain old chocolate in my opinion.  ;)  When I saw that they had "white chocolate Candy Corn" I knew I had to try it.  Thank goodness I did.  These suckers are completely addicting.  



the perfect treat for a Halloween party, after school snack, for the littles, your roommate, your spouse.  


...and it's such an easy treat to make.  EASY y'all.

Halloween inspired Muddy Buddy Mix
what you'll need: 
4 cups of Chex Cereal
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup of peanut butter
1 1/2 cup of powdered sugar (approx.)
1 bag of Reese Pieces
1 bag of M&M's: white chocolate candy corn


what you do: 
1. Melt semi-sweet chocolate and peanut butter in the microwave, stirring every 10 seconds until melted.  
2. Stir in Chex cereal one cup at a time, covering the cereal in the chocolate mixture.
3. Pour the powdered sugar in a gallon sized ziploc bag.  
4. Put half of the Chex mixture into the powdered sugar, close the bag and shake it until the cereal is covered.  Repeat until all the mixture is covered in powdered sugar.
5.  Use a sifter to get rid of all the excess powdered sugar with your cereal.
6.  Mix in Reese Pieces and Halloween-y M&M's, as much as you like.  I used almost the entire bag of each.  



What should be next on my list of Halloween treats this year?  
Have you ever made muddy buddies/puppy chow before?

  1. I totally bought 3 bags of these yummy white chocolate candy corn M&M's because of my love affair with white chocolate! I'm so glad M&M's has transitioned into the wonderfulness of white chocolate :D And this is such a perfect Halloween snack to use them in! I LOVE making chex mixes because of all the possibilities! Muddy Buddies are one of my favorites too!
