  1. >Happy Sunday! Thanks so much for hosting. Your muddy buddies reminded me of a recipe my family loves called "People Puppy Chow". It is very similar. Sometimes we serve it under the name "Snow Candy". Going to merge our 2 recipes next time and add a bit of vanilla and butter.

  2. >I forgot about Muddy Buddies! We used to eat these on the bus on the way to track meets. I'll have to make up a nostalgic batch with the kids tomorrow on their day off of school. Since most varieties of Chex are gluten-free(not the Wheat ones, obviously,) this is a great recipe for my older g-f child.

  3. >Muddy Buddies are one of my absolute favorites! It's the crunchy, creamy, sweet combination I think. I spotted a snack bag of peanut butter and chocolate covered Bugles at the store the other day and snapped those up – they reminded me of the muddy buddies!

  4. >Yum, the muddy buddies looks so delicious. I may have to make some next weekend! linking up a bit late with my balsamic glazed brussels sprouts, fighting the anti brussels sprouts stigmas!

  5. >Hi Cassity! What a great bunch of hungry recipes you have here! We have more snow and ice coming our way so I might have a lot of time on my hands to try them! I am linking up a great recipe for made from scratch buttermilk biscuits that were delicious! all the best! Alex
