Dried cherries, dark chocolate and Chex® cereal combine to make one of my favorite new snacks this holiday season. Does your family love Muddy Buddies® as much as mine does? Years ago, my best friend introduced me to the addictive snack and it has made a regular appearance in our kitchen countless times since then. I typically make a half batch or smaller, simply because I can’t be trusted to stay out of it myself. It disappears ridiculously fast!
When Chex® asked me to create a new party mix recipe, I could hardly wait to play with that idea. This fun twist on our family’s recipe was inspired by a late night craving for Black Forest Cake. As my boys were snacking on this, one of them declared this version, “27 Thumbs Up!” Considering that 2 thumbs up is a huge success, I’m calling this a new family favorite.
My son developed a sensitivity to gluten a couple years ago and I was thrilled to realize that one of our favorite cereals could remain a favorite. (Seven of the eight varieties of Chex® cereal are gluten free.) I almost always have a box (or three) in the pantry, so that we can throw together a batch of party mix whenever we want some. What’s not to love about a fantastic chocolate snack that only takes a few minutes to make?
