Muddy Buddies or Puppy Chow… Whatever you call it it’s delicious!

Muddy Buddies

I have to admit, this is one recipe I never tried until I this year. I heard it refereed to as Puppy Chow and let’s be honest… That doesn’t sound too appetizing. I always politely declined when offered but man-oh-man was I missing out! Peanut butter and chocolate combine in this sweet treat for an out of this world cereal snack. I kid you not… I could eat this by the hand fulls. If you I had some in my house right now I’d jump into my pj’s, sit on the couch, and scarf it down. Pretty sure if anyone came to the door while I was in the middle of my binge I’d answer with a powdered sugar beard and no shame.

Ok… Maybe a little shame.

This recipe makes a lot. I’m not even kidding. So if you have a party coming up (think Holiday Shindigs) it’s the perfect go-to. Bonus? You cannot mess it up. Seriously. It’s impossible. I’ve had my awesome cousin test this theory.

If you want to get an A+ and be on the kiddo’s good list you could always pack a small baggie of this for them to take to school. Hide it in their lunch box with a little love note and watch them come back thrilled.
