My Love/Hate Relationship with Muddy Buddies

Ok, so have you heard of Muddy Buddies? Oh you know, the chocolate peanut butter and Chex mixture that is usually devoured within seconds? Yes, that one.

Well, my husband and I have a love/hate relationship with it. You see, it is quite possibly one of our favorite guilty snacks to eat but the problem is, we can eat an entire batch in 24-48 hours by ourselves. It’s awful, well amazing, bu awful. So after a few failed attempts to practice self-control and only eat a few pieces a day, I now only allow myself to make it during the holidays. It’s generally our Christmas Day snack but I also end up making 2-3 batches after that because we remember how good it is.

So I thought it was only fair to share this amazing snack with all of you today (in case you don’t know about it already).  It would make a really great New Years treat too!

And I wish I could take full credit for the recipe, but you can actually just find it on the back on the Chex box. However, I don’t think their recipe includes enough chocolate or peanut butter so I have made a few tweaks to it :)

    lol. the other reason I have a love hate relationship with those delectable little bits is how messy the powder can be!!! especially when you’re shoveling it into your mouth at the speed of light. yikes! they should come with a warning label: do NOT wear dark colors while devouring muddy buddies.

    p.s. I’d love for you to link up this recipe or any others you have at my installment of the ‘Tis the Season Link Party Series. The link’s below if you have a chance.
    Hope you’re having a great holiday Taryn!

      Hey Tori!

      Yes! The Theo Chocolate is soy -free, well most of it is, you just have to check. They are my absolute favorite chocolates. They are on the expensive side but I only use them every so often. They are made locally here in Seattle but I buy them at almost every major grocery store like Safeway, Fred Meyer (Kroger store). Here is there store locator, you can also purchase directly from their site.

      Hope that helps!

    Oh my word! I can see why it’s so dangerous to have around. It probably wouldn’t even make it out of my kitchen!

    Thank you for sharing this delightfully addictive treat, Taryn!

    Happy New Year!

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism
    or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems
    a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any methods to
    help reduce content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.

    Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or
    vice-versa? My site addresses a lot of the same topics as
    yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you are interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!
