Thank you General Mills for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and options are my own.


Guys we are pretty pumped with the NEW Peanut Butter Chex available at Walmart. Izzy and I decided to create Double Peanut Butter Muddy Buddies as a fun beach snack. We found this delicious and easy recipe on

Izzy had a blast helping me make our beach snack. As a teacher mom, I see this as another great opportunity for Izzy to work on her math skills with measuring. She also was exposed to science as we discussed and she witnessed the ingredients melting and hardening. Scroll through to check out my little chef helping me to make a childhood favorite of mine, Muddy Buddies, for the first time.


5 cups Peanut Butter Chex™ cereal

4 cups Chocolate Chex™ cereal

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1/4 cup butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


In large bowl, add cereals; set aside.

If you have a little helper like mine we enjoys tasting as you go, you may want to give them a little bowl on the side of some Peanut Butter Chex to munch on. Try not to taste test all of the measured out cereals like Izzy. lol

In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.

Again, tasting the ingredients… she just couldn’t resist.

Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container & enjoy!

Have you ever made muddy buddies? What memories do you have eating them? I remember making them year round for so many different occasions. This batch of Peanut Butter Chex Muddy Buddies came with us to the beach!

Head to Walmart to stock up on Peanut Butter Chex & create some fun recipes and special memories with loved ones.
