Cereal coated with melted mint chocolate and powdered sugar. Need I say more? These Andes Muddy Buddies are a must try and the perfect sweet treat.
Andes Muddy Buddies
Chocolate and mint are my all time favorite flavor combination. It’s always been my favorite candy, ice cream, cake, you name it. If it came in chocolate and mint you know it’s something I would love. These Andes Muddy Buddies are coated in my favorite melted Andes and then covered with powdered sugar. To give it even more chocolate and mint flavor I even tossed in some Andes baking chips. I also was baking cookies the same day I made these and had a little fun with the themes so I tossed in some green sprinkles for more color. Totally optional but why not!
Growing up we always called this treat puppy chow. My mom always made it at Christmas time. We usually stuck with the classic. Melted chocolate chips and peanut butter, covered with powdered sugar, with a hand full (or 2) of chocolate chips tossed in. It was always such an easy treat to make. We would put them in baggies for neighbor or teacher gifts but always made sure to leave a few baggies at home for us. What we kept at home always became the choice movie night snack for Christmas movies. I love thinking back on these memories around the holidays and then making special memories and traditions for my kids. Christmas movies and buddy muddies will be a Christmas tradition that sticks around for sure.
How to make Andes Muddy Buddies:
Step one: Place unwrapped Andes in a microwave safe bowl and melt. I usually just do 30 seconds in the microwave then remove it, stir it, then back into the microwave until fully melted.
Step two: Add Chex cereal to a large mixing bowl. Pour in melted chocolate and gently mix until cereal is coated.
Step three: Next add in powder sugar and again gently mix until all cereal is coated. You want to do this quickly before your chocolate dries. Add in Andes baking chips and toss. Serve and enjoy!
