Muddy Buddies

We first encountered this chocolatey snack mix at Girl Scout camp, many years ago. These days you can buy a bag of Chex-branded Muddy Buddies in the store, but it’s not quite the same as making it yourself. Since it’s a Girl Scout camp recipe, it’s kid-friendly. Expect a fun, chocolatey mess and giggles! Muddy Buddies is the second of my 25 Appetizers of Christmas.


  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 9 cups Rice Chex, Crispix, or Rice Krispies
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar


  1. Melt together the chocolate chips, peanut butter and vanilla over medium heat, stirring frequently to avoid sticking.
  2. Add cereal and mix until well coated.
  3. Add powdered sugar and mix until coated.
