Chex Mix Muddy Buddies – Christmas Version

The holidays are a time for get-togethers – with family, friends, co-workers and more. So, it’s always good to have on hand munchie food no matter what type of get-together it is! Muddy Buddies is an oldie but goodie snack mix that is always sure to please a crowd and you will go through this stuff in no time. My cousin and aunt always make batches for all of us of the regular, salty Chex mix and bring to Thanksgiving for us to take home, which I love and it lasts about a day or two at our house. But I love this sweet version of the Chex Mix, too, with the Muddy Buddies, for all of us who love that perfect light mix of chocolate & peanut butter. We’ve changed it up just a little bit, too, to make it more festive for Christmastime.
