Easter Muddy Buddies

Honestly, Who doesn’t like muddy buddies?   I’m very slowly trying to make all the Muddy Buddy versions I have seen online.     While I was sitting at home enjoying my bag of Easter M&M’s and watching The Big Bang Theory I thought why not make some Easter Muddy Buddies and add some M&M’s into the mix.

I love Muddy Buddies because they are so easy very quick and easy to make!   They are the perfect snack for the kids to help you make with out making a huge mess.


Well they did turn out great!

I covered my Chex in some yummy white chocolate.   Then add in the Easter M&M’s for the burst of milk chocolate.   It’s actually the perfect combo of white and milk chocolate.   It would even be some more fun to add  some sprinkles into the mix for some more added fun and some bright color.

  • 4½ cups Rice Chex cereal
