Muddy Buddies

When the 9:00pm chocolate peanut butter craving calls, this always satisfies!  Chex has a great recipe for this snack and the great thing is that you can also make it dairy, soy, and nut free!  It is so easy to adapt and you can't ruin it!  I never really make it the same twice, I just dump.  Here is what I usually do- but remember don't bother measuring, this will just give you an idea of the amounts!

Muddy Buddies
1 c. chocolate chips(use regular, dairy free, or Enjoy life soy free)
1/4 c. peanut butter(if you are allergic to nuts, just leave it out)
6 c. rice or corn Chex(make sure they are General Mills)
1 c. powdered sugar
Melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave for 1 min., stir, continue to heat for 30 s. intervals, stirring in between, until melted.  Stir in Chex until coated.  In a gallon size Ziploc bag add the powdered sugar, stir in the Chex mixture and shake.  Refrigerate.

*If you want to add butter, add a few Tablespoons.  This will make it runnier and you can add more Chex.
**If you need variety, omit peanut butter and stir in a small amount of mint extract.
