Muddy Buddies are a snack mix made famous by Chex Cereal. However, any cereal can be used in Muddy Buddies Recipes

Making Muddy Buddies, Bunny Chow in the Instant Pot

I LOVE LOVE this trick with the Instant Pot. Add 4-5 cups of water to your Instant Pot and set to Saute’.

Place a larger glass bowl on top of your Instant Pot and pour your chocolate pieces or candy wafers in the bowl.

The steam that is created will melt the chocolate. Stir until melted and pour over cereal until it’s all coated. Dust in Powdered Sugar and add chocolate candy pieces.

How to make Muddy Buddies without Chex

This is easy. Muddy Buddies can be made with any cereal and melted chocolate or melted candy wafer. Then dust in powdered sugar and you’ve got Muddy Buddies!

How Long will Muddy Buddies stay fresh?

Honestly, it would be strange for this Snack Mix to not be devoured the day it’s made.

But if it does last, you will be surprised to know that it can last sealed in a zip-loc bag or air tight container for up to 2 weeks.
