Hot Chocolate Muddy Buddies
These Hot Chocolate Muddy Buddies add a fun holiday twist on the classic muddy buddies. These muddy buddies have the same great flavors of a cup of cocoa all wrapped up in a crunchy, chocolatey, cereal treat. It's perfect for parties and holiday gift giving!
- 10 cup rice Chex cereal
- 12 oz bittersweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 7 oz marshmallow fluff
- 1 cup hot cocoa mix (dry)
- 1.5 cups powdered sugar
- 3.1 oz Snow Caps Candy
- 3 cups mini marshmallows
Add the chocolate chips and butter to a medium sized microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring after each one, until the chocolate is melted and you can stir it smooth.
Add in the marshmallow fluff and stir it into the chocolate until fully incorporated.
Add the Chex cereal to a large bowl.
Pour the chocolate mixture over the cereal and gently stir it to coat the cereal completely with the mixture.
Add the cereal to a large gallon sized ziplock bag, and add in the powdered sugar and hot cocoa mix.
Seal and shake the bag up to cover the cereal completely with the powdered sugar and cocoa mix.
Place two wire cooling racks each on a large cookie sheet.
Spread the muddy buddies over the top of the cooling racks to let the chocolate set. Let it cool for about 30 minutes.
Mix the cooled muddy buddies in a large bowl with the snow cap candies and mini marshmallows.
Enjoy immediately, or package up for gifts.
