There’s a very good reason that this delicious combination of rice cereal covered with a scrumptious chocolate peanut butter mixture, then tossed in powdered sugar has become such a popular snack. Of course, kicking this snack up a few notches for Christmas gives it an extra festive touch. I’ve taken the traditional Muddy Buddies or Puppy Chow and added holiday M&Ms as well as crushed peppermint candies. Better make a couple of batches, this yummy mix isn’t going to last long!
