  1. I love these! I like to make a serving for myself for dinner sometimes! LOL! I leave out the butter/margarine and it tastes just fine.I was at Sam's Club today and saw that Chex now has bags of Muddy Buddies!

  2. I make this for my kids at least once a month. I find that pouring the powder sugar and the chex mix into a brown paper bag and shaking or putting the powder sugar and chex mix into a large food storage container and shaking—works well to coat the chex mix!!

  3. We have a tub of these on my counter right now — an allergy safe version. My son has multiple food allergies, and these adapt beautifully. Nobody who tastes them even realizes that they don't have peanut butter, so they're confused, knowing my son's allergies. We sub sunbutter for peanut butter, Earth Balance spread for butter, and use Enjoy Life chocolate chips (which are milk free). I know you don't need to know this, but I thought I'd share in case anyone else with food allergies happens upon it. Gluten free, dairy free, nut free, etc., and delicious. 🙂

  4. Perfect! I was just looking for a recipe that didn't involve my mixer. While making pizza crust, my kitchen aid decided to stop working :(We homeschool and Wednesday is our cooking class day. We were going to make homemade pretzels, but this might work! Thanks for the idea!

  5. My mom got some of these from her boss at work one year at Christmas. We had no idea what they were called and weren't quite sure how to make them. We LOVED them and were so sad when they were all gone. I'm excited to tell my mom we can make our own this year! Thanks Erica!
