What You Need to Make Halloween Muddy Buddies
You will need milk chocolate chips, creamy peanut butter, butter, powdered sugar, Chex cereal and some fun Halloween mix-ins. You can use any fun Halloween candy or sprinkles. I used mini peanut butter cups (because, duh-more peanut butter and chocolate is always a good idea), some mini kit-kat candy bars, Halloween M&Ms in assorted flavors and cute eyeball candy sprinkles. If you like candy corns that would be fun to add too.
Melting the Chocolate and Peanut Butter
This Halloween Muddy Snack Mix is easy to make and everything you love about muddy buddies! It has the chocolate, the peanut butter and powdered sugar and some extra fun Halloween add-ins!
To make the Muddy Buddies for Halloween you will need milk chocolate chips, Chex cereal, creamy peanut butter and butter (to help it melt smooth).
Melt the chocolate, peanut butter and butter in a saucepan. Start it out over medium heat. Once it starts to melt, turn it down to medium-low heat. Watch it closely and take it off of the heat as soon as it is smooth and melted.
Making the Halloween Muddy Buddies
After the chocolate-peanut butter mixture is melted, pour it over the Chex cereal and gently mix it. Don’t mix it too hard or you will crush the Chex cereal.
Then, you will dust the chocolate and peanut butter Chex cereal with the powdered sugar. A large bowl makes it easier to mix it and cover it all.
Spread the muddy buddies out on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Then you can easily add in the Halloween extras!
Enjoy this sweet Halloween snack mix at your next Halloween party or make it to snuggle up and watch some Halloween movies!
