Muddy Buddies

Holiday snacks are everywhere right now probably tempting you as you read this…I know this because our holiday treats are in such close proximity to my computer, it is all I can do to keep typing! It is, though, truly the only time of year you are surrounded by a lot of these special treats. Certain ones only make an annual appearance right around mid-December and are not here to see New Year’s Eve. A classic example of this for my family is Muddy Buddy mix.

You might call it something else, like Chocolate Chex mix, Dog Food, Trash etc… It is a Christmas-time only thing in our house… I make a double batch and put it in a big Tupperware bowl and take a scoop or pack a scoop for a quick little gift. It’s made from Rice Chex mix covered in melted chocolate chips and creamy peanut butter and coated in powdered sugar. Completely addictive!!

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?
