Are you celebrating Cinco de Mayo today?

My daughter made this for us to snack on during the day. She loves making and coming up with all sorts of combinations for Muddy Buddies. This is a great recipe to make with kids. They can stir and pour!

  1. I haven’t had Muddy Buddies since my daughter made them when she was in middle school! This sure took me back. Thanks for the memory. I’m sure I’ve still got her hand written recipe she got from a friend tucked away in my old Betty Crocker cookbook. 🙂

    No not really celebrating Cinco de Mayo. I think there might be a parade but life at my house is rollin along like every other week-day/ Friday. 🙂

      Muddy Buddies have been around forever. There are tons of variations on them. Add candies, nuts, raisins, and spices and create a whole new flavor.

      Thanks, it is referred to by both terms. Usually if it has chocolate in it the call it Muddy Buddies.

  8. Do you think you could do this with white chocolate or dark chocolate chips? Then you could mix them together in a bag to have a combination.

      Certainly! My daughter doesn’t like the bag method because it tends to stick for her but others use it all the time.

    I am SUCH a chocolate freak, and your recipe is right up my alley. There is truly nothing more pleasing than some good old melted chocolate. Gorgeous photography, too! Muddy Buddies are so addictive. I’ve made something similar before, and my pics certainly do not compare. I cannot wait to give this a shot. Thank you for sharing.
