Chex Muddy Buddies

It’s Monday. That calls for chocolate. And peanut butter. In the form of the most.addicting.treat you’re going to come across. Probably ever. Do I exaggerate? No. Have I EVER exaggerated? No.

Buuuut it’s true. If you’ve never had these before, you need to make them immediately. I adore this treat. I first had them in kindergarten when our teacher convinced us it was puppy chow, and I remember thinking, “I need to eat dog food every day for the rest of my life.” Twenty-odd years later, I’m still not convinced I shouldn’t be eating this for every meal.
