Nanci: Jenna loves making this cereal box recipe favorite with me. I included the parent and kid steps in the recipe because we always make them together. If I just leave these in a big bowl on the counter, they’re gone in a few hours so I usually divide them up among the four kids and put them into small ziptop bags with their names on them. Then I put all of the little bags into a larger freezer bags and the snacks go into the freezer. The kids can easily grab a bag and I find that they’re less messy coming straight from the freezer.

Assembly Directions:
1. Parents & Kids: Measure out ingredients.
Kids: Pour cereal into large bowl and set aside.

2. Kids: Combine chocolate pieces, peanut butter and butter/margarine in 1 quart microwave-safe bowl.
Parents: Microwave on HIGH 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until smooth, stirring after 1 minute. Stir in vanilla.

3. Parents: Pour chocolate mixture over cereal, stirring with a large slotted spoon until all pieces are evenly coated. Pour cereal mixture 2 cups at a time into ziptop bag with powdered sugar. Seal securely.
Kids: Shake until all pieces are well coated with powdered sugar.

4. Kids: Spread muddy buddies on waxed paper to cool.

Freezing Directions:
Divide muddy buddies into one cup portions and put into small ziptop bags. Label bags with names of kids to keep snacks “even Steven”. Put the small bags into a larger freezer bag. Tastes great straight from the freezer and keeps the sticky fingers to a minimum if eaten frozen.
