Valentine’s Day Inspired Muddy Buddy Recipe

All you need are a few simple ingredients to make such a power packed delicious treat!

White Chocolate Valentines Day Inspired Muddy Buddies


9 cups of chex mix cereal
1 1/3 cups of white chocolate chips
1/4 cup of butter or margarine
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
1 cup of chocolate candies { I used red & pink chocolate for color! }
Additional add ins: extra white chocolate chips


Melt white chocolate chips and butter in a double boiler or in the microwave { that’s how i did it } If melting in the microwave, place in a microwave safe bowl and melt in 15 second intervals stirring in between so the chocolate doesn’t burn 😉 Once chocolate is melted, add vanilla extract and stir. Pour mixture over cereal and mix until cereal is well coated.

once the cereal is well coated, you want to put it in a large zip up bag, where you can then add the powdered sugar to evenly coat 🙂 one this step is done… pour in a bowl, or evenly distribute into small bags for your kids classmates for valentines day! Add a little festive flare with red & pink candy, and your set!


Hope you enjoy these Valentine’s Day inspired muddy buddys, that you, your kids and their class will all LOVE this February 😉
