Muddy Buddies...gluten-free joy.

Today was incredibly hot and muggy.

But did you ever notice on the hot and muggy days that summer throws our way, we still need to eat. And if you're like me, you want to eat something worth the calories. And this snack is QUICK and requires very little heating. So it's perfect for those hot, sticky days.

One of my favorite gluten-free snacks is Chex Muddy Buddies. Chocolate, peanut butter, powdered sugar...what more could you possibly ask for in a snack?

Ohhhh Rice Chex, you are so go from
breakfast to snacktime without breaking a sweat.

Here is the recipe I use:

Chex Muddy Buddies
4 tbsp. butter
1/2 c. peanut butter
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tsp. pure vanilla
9 1/2 c. Rice Chex cereal
4 c. powdered sugar

Pour Rice Chex in a LARGE mixing bowl. Set aside.

Melt butter in medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Add peanut butter and chocolate chips, stir until melted. Stir in vanilla.

Pour chocolate mixture over rice chex. Gently toss to coat all cereal pieces.

Divide powdered sugar evenly into two gallon-sized Ziploc bags. Then, divide cereal mixture into the bags and...shake shake shake!
I like this part!
Try adding a dance move or two...and playing Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO or Dynamite by Taio Cruz..but then you might shake it so hard that you break all the pieces. music.
Never mind, I took it too far.

At the end of the shake, shake, will have these:


Enjoy them quickly!
If your family is anything like ours, they will be gone within 24 hours.
