It’s Christmas Eve! And what better way to celebrate than to post a dessert full of chocolate peanut butter goodness? A couple of months ago we got some store bought muddy buddies and they were really good. So I thought, if store bought is good, homemade will be even better! Crazy Christmas Chex Mix is a simple, fun dessert that your kids can help you make. I absolutely love this stuff, and the longer it refrigerates, the better it gets! Your kids will forever remember the Christmas that you taught them how to make chex mix, or maybe they’ll just remember how good the dessert tasted….
The Ingredients: 1 12 oz. box chocolate Chex cereal, 1 cup chocolate hazelnut spread, 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, 1 cup confectioner’s sugar, 4 tbsp. butter, 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa, 1/2 cup assorted chocolate chips (we used peanut butter, white chocolate, and semi-sweet). 1/2 cup assorted nuts (we used peanuts and cashews).
Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl until just melted. Immediately add the peanut butter and stir until dissolved. Add the confectioner’s sugar, cocoa, and chex cereal to a gallon size Ziploc bag, Shake until combined, add the chocolate hazelnut spread and the peanut butter mixture. Shake together in a large Ziploc bag until all of the cereal is thoroughly coated. Add the nuts and chocolate chips, shake three or four times to combine, refrigerate for several hours or until the muddy buddies reach the desired consistency.
