Muddy Buddies

I’ve recently been informed–by the male population of this household–that the Gracious Rain Recipe tab is highly deficient–in that it does not contain a certain recipe apparently most essential to the happiness, health and well being of said male population. duh.

Anything for you my darlings…

Muddy Buddies


9    cups Corn Chex, Rice Chex, Wheat Chex
1    cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2    cup peanut butter
1/4    cup butter or margarine
1    teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2    cups powdered sugar

Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.
In 1-quart pan, slowly melt chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter on low heat. stir until melted and mixed thoroughly and smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake the wits out of it until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool.

Store in airtight container in refrigerator–or just pour it in a bowl and watch the wolves converge. Ours lasted about an hour.

    Oh, and did you read the lovely compliment your sweet puppets received the other day? I’ll have to go back and see if I can find it…

    here it is:

    “Also, I just wanted to thank you again for making such a nice Eclipse party for everyone. Our little grandson, Miles, is loving the finger puppets I won. We leave them on his high chair lid thingy and he plays with them at every mealtime. Or, I should say I play with them and talk to him with funny voices. He thinks I’m a bit silly.”


  4. I hadn’t seen that comment – very cool! I am so glad your party turned out so great! I’ve been thinking of some new sets and I really think we need to make some sort of Wizard (aka Harry Potterish) set. If we get one designed, I’ll be sure to send you one for your next extravaganza. 😀
