Recipe: Vegan Muddy Buddies

The combination of chocolate and peanut butter makes this is a favorite in our home. My youngest eater (17-months) gobbles it up, as does my oldest eater, the husband. This homemade version tastes way better than what I remember the non-vegan store-bought version tasting!

We call them "muddy buddies", but I have heard them also called "puppy chow" or "monkey munch".

Vegan Muddy Buddies

Recipe Source: Chex Muddy Buddies (or the back of the Rice Chex cereal box), modified to be vegan

9 c. Rice Chex
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/4 c. vegan margarine
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar

In a large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.

In a microwavable bowl, combine chocolate chips, peanut butter, and vegan margarine. Microwave uncovered for 1 minute. Stir until smooth (if still chunky, microwave for an additional 30 seconds). Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into a large container with lid or a 2-gallon resealable plastic bag.

Add powdered sugar. Seal container or bag and shake until well coated.

Let cool.

Store in refrigerator.
