Muddy Buddies

Snap, Crackle, and Pop aren’t the only ones with a cereal recipe in their back pocket. Chex has gone beyond the mix-and-match snack mix they’re known for and created Muddy Buddies, a mix of your preferred Chex cereal, chocolate chips, peanut butter, sugar, and vanilla. It’s a snack that’s both savory and sweet, and it’s easy to pack into bags for on-the-go indulgence.
