I was putting together a missionary package the other day and needed some easy treats because my ankle is still not 100% so these muddy buddies fit the bill and besides, who doesn’t love muddy buddies? The recipe comes from “Frugal Mom Eh!”. I doubled the recipe and it made a full Ziploc gallon bag of treats, perfect for a favorite missionary and her companions.
4 1/2 cups Rice Chex cereal
1/2 cup white chocolate chips (I used white candy melts instead cause they melt better than chocolate chips)
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup green M&M’s
1/4 cup Lucky Charms marshmallows (I used a full cup and also used all the cereal not just the marshmallows)
1 Place cereal in large bowl and set aside.
2 Microwave chips, peanut butter and butter for 1 minute and then stir until melted and smooth.
3 Pour peanut butter mixture over cereal and stir until evenly coated.
4 Place half of cereal mixture in a Ziploc gallon bag and add powdered sugar.
5 Shake bag until cereal is well coated then spread on baking sheet and let cool for 15 minutes.
6 Stir green food coloring into other half of cereal. Spread green cereal on another baking sheet and allow to cool for 15 minutes. (I was out of green food coloring so had to mix blue and yellow and then ran out of yellow too so didn’t get a very good green color so check out her original post to see a good green mix.)
7 In large bowl, mix both cereals, M&M’s and Lucky Charms.
8 Store in airtight container.
