The 4th of July is almost upon is! This year is just flying by, but I kind of don’t mind! I LOVE summer and any chance to hang out with friends and family is a great one! With all of this party-going and entertaining happening, I’ve been whipping up all kinds of goodness to take hither and yon… and these Patriotic Muddy Buddys have been a hit every where I’ve taken them!
1 cup Milk Chocolate Chips
4 cups Rice Chex Cereal
1 1/4 cups Powdered Sugar
M&M’s peanuts in red, white, and blue
Put your 4 cups of cereal in a large bowl
Use a microwave safe bowl and add your 1 cup of chocolate
Melt your chocolate on high for 30 seconds stir then repeat for another 30 seconds until melted
Begin to drizzle your chocolate over your cereal by using a large spoon lightly mix as you add chocolate
Make sure to coat your chocolate evenly
In large ziplock bag add your powder sugar
Begin to add your chocolate coated cereal in plastic bag with powdered sugar.
Seal your bag and shake to cover the creal with the powder sugar
Let sit for 1-2 minutes
Now spread your cereal out on a wax paper lined baking sheet to dry 1 hour
Replace your cereal in large bowl and begin to add your Whoppers, M&Ms in red, white, and Blue
Have fun and be creative
Don’t these Patriotic Muddy Buddys look like fun? And believe me, they are TASTY! Occasionally, I’ll add some salted peanuts to the mix too! Just depends on my mood when I’m mixing everything up. With or with out, these Patriotic Muddy buddys are a sure fire hit!
