Muddy Buddy’s AKA Puppy Chow

We have been making this for years to eat at campouts and also just for a fun sweet treat! Chocolate and peanut butter were one of our favorite combos for so long. Once our son was diagnosed with a deadly peanut allergy, we stopped making this for a time.

Then we learned that we could sub SunButter in equal parts in all our favorite recipes!

The original recipe comes from Chex, but we alter it just a tad with extra creamy SunButter!

There’s nothing better than playing in the mud, finding worms, kicking rainboots in mud puddles, and having fun snacks like Muddy Buddy’s AKA Puppy Chow! That’s exactly what we did camping this week!

One of my all time fav things about this fun recipe is that you can make it gluten free and top 8 free allergy friendly! There’s just 6 ingredients: Rice or Corn Chex; chocolate chips (consider Nestle or Enjoy Life allergy friendly chips for vegan dairy free); SunButter or a friendly nut or seed butter for you; salted butter or vegan “butter” spread; vanilla and powdered sugar!
