҈ A Perfect Snack for Fireworks ҈

The Fourth of July is almost here. Are you getting excited for  family, friends, picnics and FIREWORKS!!   ҈
 I am going to share a fun snack to serve at your Fourth of July party. 

Chex Muddy Buddies

9 cups Corn Chex, Rice Chex, Wheat Chex or Chocolate Chex or a combination 

1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter 
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Into a large bowl, measure cereal and set aside
On the stove top, place your pot full of butter on medium heat
melt butter
once your butter is melted add the chocolate chips and peanut butter
stir and melt all together
 take pot of burner and add your vanilla
 pour the chocolate, peanut butter mixture into the bowl full of cereal.
Add powdered sugar to the mixture of chocolate, peanut butter and cereal.
Some people like to place the mixture into a bag and toss the powder sugar in and toss it around.
 After well coated you can place on waxed paper to cool.
Store in an airtight container.


Do you have a special snack you like to eat during the fireworks?


  1. I just made a couple batches of that addictive stuff! One of our favorites around here!

  2. This is definitely addictive. My kids used to call it Puppy Chow!!

    We make a lot smore's on the bonfire! :)


  3. This looks so good! When I was young, my family would serve watermelon or maybe home-made ice cream on July 4th!

  4. I love this photo! This recipe can be gluten-free too, if I watch what the ingredients, because a lot of Chex are gluten-free. (I'm not gluten-free, but I watch ingredients for one person.)

  5. Yummy...I am gonna make some of this for the grands. Our tradition for 4th of July was to have a family picnic and us cousins all took turns cranking the wheel for or homemade vanilla ice cream..and of course we always had watermelon. Janice

  6. Its popcorn here and we can see the fireworks over town from our deck in the country....:)

  7. I was just thinking about it today...the 4th is this week!!!!

  8. I looks like the perfect snack to enjoy while watching the fireworks!

  9. We don't really celebrate like that here in Canada, it's Canada day today...hope that there are fireworks. But maybe such a treat will catch on here.


  10. Looks like a great snack...easy to make and delicious.

    Happy 4th of July!

  11. Yummy!! You have solved my problem of what to fix and take to Redneck Island!!! Thanks friend!! Have a great 4th!!!

  12. These look yummy Carla...and I like how easy this recipe looks.

  13. Sounds similar to what I know as Puppy Chow! Love the stuff.... a little to much!
