Chex Scotchy Muddy Buddies

Chex Scotchy Muddy Buddies
What do I do on a snow day five days before Christmas? I bake. I make things with the ingredients in my house. I stay cozy. Today I made these Chex Scotchy Muddy Buddies. I had the milk and butterscotch chips from Scotcheroos last month, and I had the Chex from Crispy Caramelized Chex Mix last week. So... with a whole day on my hands, I decided to bake up a new batch of Dutch Letter sticks to pass out for Christmas. And then I made these Scotchy Muddy Buddies. I love the flavor of scotcheroos, so I thought that this would be a natural and delicious thing to make. 
I like these, but as with most muddy buddies, they're delicious, but pretty sweet, so I'll be taking these to work tomorrow as a little dessert for our pizza we're all planning to have for lunch on our last day before winter break.  Good times.

Chex Scotchy Muddy Buddies

  • 9 cups Chex cereal (rice and/or corn)
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
Place Chex cereal in a very large bowl. In a microwave safe bowl, place the butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir for a couple of minutes to melt the chips the rest of the way. If they are not melting very well, you can microwave it on high for another 20-30 seconds. Stir until smooth.
Pour chocolate mixture over the Chex in the large bowl and stir/fold carefully with a rubber/silicone spatula making sure to evenly coat all of the cereal. 
Pour half of the powdered sugar into an extra large zip top plastic bag or a large paper grocery bag. Pour in the coated cereal. Pour in the rest of the powdered sugar. Seal bag or fold top of paper bag twice and carefully shake/jiggle until cereal is evenly coated with the powdered sugar.
Store in an airtight container.
Makes 9 cups
