Classic Muddy Buddies

Jump to recipe

A classic crowd favorite that is made from a combination of melted chocolate and almond butter then tossed in powdered sugar and mixed with M&M’s for the epic sweet snack.

The first time I heard about this snack, I was intrigued.  The combination of chocolate and nut butter has always lured me.  I decided to try this out because we’ve been doing a lot of outdoor activities and hiking lately.  Using these Muddy Buddies as a snack to keep the kids going has actually been working great!

It takes 15 minutes to make this wonderful treat, and you can actually add in extras if you wanted.  I chose to add in M&M’s.  I love that they have holiday ones and picked up spring colored ones.  I picked up red and pink ones for Valentine’s and holiday ones during December.  Anyway, you get the idea.  Here are a few other ingredients you can use to turn these Muddy Buddies into trail mix for hiking or a good snack for a road trip if you like:

  • pretzels
  • candy corn
  • mini reese’s peanut butter cups
  • mini oreo cookies
  • crushed candy cane
  • sprinkles
  • almonds
  • chia seeds
  • marshmallows

The possibilities are endless.

I’ve not only used these for snacks for my kids, but for parties and as gifts.  Fill some canning jars, tie a ribbon around them with a pretty tag, and you have a beautiful and delicious homemade gift for friends, family, and teachers.
