I know I’m not the only one who was obsessed with Muddy Buddies as a kid! They were always a favorite at school holiday parties, birthday parties and just a deliciously sweet snack to have around the house!
I recently decided to combine my favorite childhood snack with my favorite adult indulgence, Nutella, for a delectably sweet treat that is sure to bring back all those warm memories of being a kid combined with the pure joy that Nutella brings to everything it touches!
- 9 cups rice chex
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- ½ cup nutella
- ¼ cup butter
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
Begin by placing the rice chex in a large bowl.
Next, melt together the chocolate chips, Nutella and butter for 2 minutes in the microwave.
Remove from the microwave, stir, then microwave for an additional minute.
Next, mix in the vanilla, then pour the mixture on top of the rice chex and mix well to coat.
Place into a large Ziploc bag, then cover in the powdered sugar and toss well.
Once covered completely in the powdered sugar, pour the Nutella Buddies out onto a sheet of wax paper and allow to set for 30 minutes (while taste testing along the way, of course!)
Now, place in a serving bowl and dig in!
My roommates words, and I quote “What did you put in these? They’re the best Muddy Buddies I’ve ever had!”
My roommate: “Nutellllla”
Sometimes the simplest things can be just so darn delicious! Oh, and did I mention, they’re also gluten-free!
I will definitely be serving these at my upcoming Superbowl Party!
