Muddy Buddies

A few weeks ago Trent asked if he could make Muddy Buddies because he remembered tasting them and thought they were sooo good. So on Monday he got to make his Muddy Buddies. In all of my cooking and treat making, I had never made these. I know. I can't believe I've never tried my hand at them. I didn't really this time either. Trent did just about everything. They're kinda messy, you know that "muddy" part, but it's a fun snack for kids to make.

Pouring in the chocolate chips.

He measured and poured in the peanut butter.

Time to get muddy!

Trent had some help from little sister. They shook and shook the cereal all around to coat it with powdered sugar. Yum!

Trent's finished product. Good thing all of us like them. We'll be munching on these babies for a while. The recipe makes a big ole bowl full. Good job Trent!

Chex Muddy Buddies
9 cups chex cereal(any kind or a combination)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
