How to make S’mores Muddy Buddies
I prefer to melt the chocolate and peanut butter using my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker. Why? Well, there is no hope of me burning it! haha. It’s true. The Instant Pot will gently melt the chocolate to a smooth creamy consistency that is perfect. However, you can also melt chocolate on the stove or in the Microwave. You decide.
Once the chocolate is melted and poured over the cereal, coat the cereal evenly with the chocolate mixture.
Then add powdered sugar to coat over the chocolate. Shake in a gallon ziplock bag to coat. OH YUM!
It’s that simple! Then allow to cool for a few minutes and add your grams, marshmallows and extra chocolate chips. It’s really that simple.
The perfect snack mix for the movies, family game nights or well, just because!
Is Muddy Buddies and Chex Mix the same thing?
Well, yes, it can be. However Chex Mix can also be a salty mixture so although the term is used interchangeably, it doesn’t always mean the same thing!
Use a Gallon Zip-lock bag and add powdered sugar. Then SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE! It’s so easy with no mess!
