The boys helped me create these yummy goodies for the office staff at the school. Just a sweet little way to show our appreciation for all they've done this year and who doesn't love some sweets at the holidays!
These bags are filled with "Muddy Buddies", taken directly from the Rice Chex box, but I will include the recipe below. You might want to whip up a batch to give to someone as a little sweet treat this year.... Enjoy!
Chex Muddy Buddies
9 cups Chex (Rice, Corn or Wheat)(I used Rice Chex)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Measure cereal into a large bowl; set aside.
In microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter for one minute. Stir. Microwave for another 30 seconds or until it can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal and toss to coat evenly. Pour into ziploc bag and add powdered sugar; shake until completely coated.
Spread on cookie sheet to cool and dry. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
