What are muddy buddies?
Muddy buddies is made from a rice cereal that is coating in chocolate or peanut butter and then rolled in powdered sugar. This became popular in the 1980s and are still a well loved treat now. Sometimes it goes by other names like puppy chow, doggy bag, reindeer chow or monkey munch. The crazy names are because when it is made in the more traditional way, with chocolate and peanut butter it resembles dry dog kibble, or puppy chow.

How to Store
You can store these in an airtight container. You can use a container with a lid or store them in a freezer bag. The treat can be kept at room temperature but I recommend keeping it in the refrigerator or the freezer. It will last much longer this way and it does not get melted causing it to be a mess.
How Long Do They last
When you make muddy buddies, you can count on them lasting for about a week to 2 weeks. You want to make sure they are stored properly, in an airtight container and away from humidity. This will help your treat to last longer. If you keep it in the refrigerator or the freezer, it will last for up to a month in the refrigerator or 3 months in the freezer.
Variations to Muddy Buddies
I am using cotton candy add in to add a cotton candy flavor to the recipe. You can use other flavor of mix ins in order to create a different flavor.
Add sprinkles – You can use white and blue sprinkles or you can find snowflakes that will match the theme perfectly.
Flavored Chocolate – You can also use different flavored chocolate or add in extracts that will flavor the chocolate. You can use whatever flavoring you like in the chocolate.
Add Blue and White M&Ms– These go right along with the Frozen theme and will add a delicious twist to the treat.
Gluten Free– When using rice cereal this tends to be naturally gluten free. If you do not want rice cereal, you can also use a flour based cereal.
Add nuts and chocolate chips– You make this into a trail mix type snack by adding nuts and unmelted chocolate chips. You can use peanut, almonds, walnuts or pecans.
