Easter Muddy Buddy Recipe

One of my favorite things in the entire world is muddy buddy! You know Chex cereal with a mixture of chocolate and peanut butter that is then coated in powdered sugar, yum! The other day I decided to add a little bit of a twist to traditional Muddy buddy to make it festive for the upcoming Easter holiday, meet Bunny Chow!

Bunny chow is so easy to make, ready in 15 minutes, and is a perfect sweet snack that is gluten-free and low in saturated fat to have on hand for the kids or to add to the kid’s Easter baskets this year! 

Pair this with New York Cheesecake, Bunny Butt Funfetti Dessert Cheeseball, and Coconut Macaroon Easter Nest cookies and you will have a dessert spread everyone will love!

How to make Muddy Buddy with Chex Mix

  • You will want to gather your ingredients, measure cereal, and set them out. Add powdered sugar to each gallon zip lock bag.
  •  First, you will want to melt the chocolate chips peanut butter together by microwaving in 30-second increments.

  • Once the chocolate peanut butter mixture is smooth and melted, pour over the Chex mix in a large bowl.

  • Coat the cereal using a rubber spatula and fold in the chocolate. Do this gently and not too rough so you do not smash a lot of the Chex.
Mix Chex and chocolate
  • Once the Chex is coated well, add half to one bag and the other half to the second.

  • Close the top and mix in the plastic bag, shaking gently. Once coated well, you can either combine them in one bag with sprinkles and they are ready to eat.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Get creative with your bunny chow by Add-in sprinkles, mini-colored chocolate chips, or mini M&Ms. You can even use mini Cadbury eggs!  
  • You don’t have to use Peanut Butter Chex Mix you can use rice corn or any combination. 
  • You will want to stick with creamy peanut butter. I highly recommend trying this homemade peanut butter. 
  • If your kids have a peanut allergy you can increase the chocolate to 12 ounces and omit the peanut butter. 
  • You can use any kind of chocolate (white or milk)

Storage

You will want to store this in an airtight container at room temperature. It can last up to 5 days. If you find it starting to melt a bit you can place it in the fridge as well.
