First things first, what really is the difference between "muddy buddies" and "puppy chow"? I mean, really.
Obviously, I use both names depending on which I think sounds better, haha. Anyone else?
Muddy Buddies are literally my favorite treat to make for any type of function. They are always a hit. Literally, any twist I've put on the original recipe has always been welcomed with open arms (and open mouths). My other favorite recipe to make is Oreo Truffles.
Notice both of my favorites are no-bake recipes. And y'all it's practically impossible for you to mess up either.
So, after making a Cake Batter Puppy Chow (recipe to come at the end of the month) recipe for the Steeple Chase I knew I wanted to make an Easter version.
I was already placing our Walmart Grocery Online Order (post to come on that soon, too) and just searched their Easter Candy section for candies that appealed to me.
Enter the ever so famous Cadbury Eggs and Crispy M&Ms (one of Thomas' faves).
And thus this Easter Muddy Buddies recipe was created.
Vanilla Almond Bark or Candiquik, 1/2 of the bar
2 cups-ish of Powdered Sugar
2-3 cups Rice Chex Cereal
M&M's Crispy Chocolate Candies, 9.9 oz
1. Melt candiquik according to the package instructions, generally in 30 second intervals.
2. Pour in chex mix and stir. -- This step is really done by eye. I pour in the chex mix and stir until it's coated, however, each piece really doesn't need THAT much chocolate coating.
3. Pour powdered sugar into a large ziploc bag. Scoop coated chex mix into the ziploc bag, close bag and shake until the chex mix is now coated with powdered sugar.
4. Pour into an air-tight container. And repeat as many times necessary.
5. If you want to add sprinkles you could do so before the chocolate is completely cooled or at the end.
6. Add candy to the container and there ya have it.
