Does anyone else love sitting down at the end of a busy day with a cup of tea and something yummy to snack on? I am normally partial to a dark chocolate digestive, whilst scrolling through instagram or watching tv, but every now and then I fancy something a little bit different. That’s where this muddy buddy recipe comes in. These are one of my favourite American recipes that I brought home with me. I was absolutely obsessed with them when I lived there, and I think I completely forgot about them until the other day when I was reminiscing.
The ingredients are so simple, even if a little bit naughty (everything in moderation and all that). Luckily I had the ingredients in my cupboards and decided to throw them together last minute as I fancied something nice.
So, what exactly is a muddy buddy? They are crunchy, chocolatey, peanut buttery and there is only one downfall to them and that is that they are incredibly moreish! They are ridiculously easy, don’t take long to make and probably take even less time to eat. They are perfect if you fancy a sweet treat, but don’t want to put in too much effort. They are also an ideal treat to make with children as a change from the normal rice crispy cakes. However, they will need help with melting some of the ingredients.
This is just a basic recipe, and it can be adjusted to include other things you might like. I have seen some recipes use Nutella, others mix in m&m’s or marshmallows to change up the colour. You could even swap out the milk chocolate for white chocolate and the peanut butter for lemon juice if you would prefer something a little different. The options are endless!
Chocolate & Peanut Butter Muddy Buddies
Crunchy, chocolatey, peanut buttery and incredibly moreish!
Melt the chocolate, peanut butter and margarine in bowl over boiling water.
Once melted take off the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
In a large bowl combine the chocolatey mixture and the malted wheats and keep stirring until each piece of cereal is coated.
Once combined, empty the cereal into the large zip lock bag and add 1 cup of icing sugar. Once fully sealed, toss the bag around until each piece of cereal has a coating of icing sugar. Add more icing sugar as needed.
Pop the ziplock bag in the fridge for 15-20 minutes for the cereal to set and then they are ready to eat.
