For Gabriel’s birthday party I made two kinds of Chex mix. This one I named after his big brother Orion because they contain three of his favorite foods chocolate, Chex cereal, and peanut butter. I called this mix Orion’s Chocolate Muddy Buddies. I printed out labels on cardstock and hot glued them to mason jars. This recipe is also sometimes called Puppy Chow.

What you need:

  • 9 cups of Chex chocolate cereal
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup of butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup posdered sugar

In a microwave bowl microwave chocolate, peanut butter, and butter for one minute on high. Stir. Then microwave for another 30 seconds until mixture is smooth when you stir it. Stir in vanilla. Place all the cereal in a large mixing bowl and then pour the hot mixture over stirring until all the cereal is coated evenly. Pour cereal into large ziplock baggies add pwdered sugar and shake until the powdered sugar is coating everything. Spread onto wax paper to cool. You can then store it in the fridge. I made mine the night before and I just stored mine in large mason jars overnight.
