Muddy Buddy Snack


I took these pictures with Christmas decorations, but this snack is great anytime and may be the sweet compliment to all the salty snacks for the Super Bowl.  The dry ingredients are somewhat approximate, just make a big bowl of crunchy stuff and then mix it with the other ingredients.  You need:

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
4-5 c. Chex (any flavor(s) you like)
2 c. Mini pretzels
1 c. Powdered sugar


Place first three ingedients and heat in microwave for 1 minute. Mix well and heat more if needed to melt everything. Add vanilla extract and mix well.  Mix dry ingredients (you can also add nuts, M&Ms or anything else).  Pour chocolate mixture over dry ingredients and mix well.  Transfer the mixture into plastic ziplock bags with 1/4 to 1/2 cup of powdered sugar in each, close and shake to coat.  Coat all of mix (adding more powdered sugar as needed). Serve or chill to store.

 (I just noticed my pictures look like it's a container full of powdered sugar, but it's my flash adding to much light.  It is coated, but not drowning in powdered sugar!)

Dive in!!
