Chex Mix for Family Fun Night!


Hi Neighbors!

I was supposed to do a small My Get Together party with Chex Mix. Unfortunately, we are passing around a cold/flu or something and we were unable to have a party. So instead we turned it into family fun. My two daughters made the Chex Muddy Buddy mix and we are having it at game time. I have included pictures of the mix being made. It was very easy to make, and we used our special bowl and spoon we received for the get together.



Here is the recipe:


CHEX MUDDY BUDDIES Start to Finish 15 Minutes

9 Cups Corn Chex, Rice Chex, WHeat Chex, or Chocolate Chex Cereal (or combination)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1. Into large bowl, measure cereal, set aside.

2. In 1 quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter uncovered on high one minute, stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.

3. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag, shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

18 servings (1/2 cup each)

1 serving:Calories 220
