Nutella Snack Mix
I’m sure muddy buddies (also known as puppy chow) are very well known by most of you. They are an addictive little peanut butter chocolate snack that you can find on the back of the Chex Cereal box and I’ve enjoyed making (and eating) it for years! For this version, I swapped out the peanut butter for my favorite European spread, Nutella. It’s chocolaty and sweet with that nice hint of toasted hazelnuts that makes Nutella so delicious. For your next holiday movie night, serve up a big bowl of this Nutella snack mix.
- 9 cups Chex cereal of your choice, I used rice Chex
- 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 5 Tbsp salted butter
- 1/2 cup (heaping) Nutella
- 1 Tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 cup Christmas M&Ms
Place Chex in a large bowl and set aside
Melt the chocolate chips, butter and Nutella in a microwave safe glass bowl for 45 seconds, remove and stir until smooth and completely melted. Heat another 3o seconds if needed then stir in vanilla.
Spoon over Chex and stir until it’s all coated, use your hands to gently mix if the mixture starts to set.
Stir in powdered sugar until coated or shake it up in a large zip top bag.
Add M&Ms and serve in a big bowl.
