Ingredients

For each color of muddy buddies, you will need:

  • 1 cup candy melts
  • 4 cups chex cereal I used a mixture of corn & rice
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
US Customary - Metric

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, melt candy melts in microwave, stirring every 30 seconds.

  2. Toss with cereal until well coated.

  3. Measure powdered sugar into large ziplock bag and add the candy melt coated chex to the bag. Seal and shake well.

  4. Pour onto a baking sheet or counter lined with wax paper and spread out to create a thin layer*. Cool completely, then break any large pieces apart.

  5. Mix with other colors and serve!

Recipe Notes

Nutritional Value is for one cup.

*The only thing you need to be careful of is making sure you spread these out in one even layer to dry/cool. You can't cake on the powdered sugar or else you won't be able to see the colored candy melts, so I added a minimal amount to make the color still visible. Meaning: some of these pieces might stick to each other after they cool, so do your best to spread them out to avoid that. Though....they will come apart with some gentle coaxing :)
