  • 9 cups rice chex cereal
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips (I recommend Guittard or Ghirardelli)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup Easter/Spring M&Ms


  1. Measure cereal into a large bowl and set aside.

  2. In a large microwaveable safe bowl, combine the peanut butter, chocolate chips, and butter. Microwave in bursts of 15 seconds, stirring in-between each burst for 15 seconds, until the mixture is melted and smooth. Add in the vanilla and salt. Pour over the prepared cereal. Stir well until the cereal is evenly coated.

  3. Pour half of the cereal mixture into a gallon-sized ziplock bag and pour half of the powdered sugar over it. Seal and shake until the cereal is evenly coated. Repeat with the other half of the cereal and powdered sugar in the same or a different bag. Shake until all the cereal is well coated!

  4. Remove into a large bowl and stir in Spring colored M&Ms. Separate into individual snack size bags and attach free printable bag topper!

  5. Alternatively: store leftover muddy buddies in an airtight container at room temperature.
