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:
- candy corn
- mini reese’s peanut butter cups
- mini oreo cookies
- crushed candy cane
- chia seeds
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.
