Holiday Muddy Buddies (Allergen-Friendly!)

Most of you call this Puppy Chow, but either way, you'll be dying to make multiple batches!!!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Servings 11 cups
Author Rachael DeVaux


  • 11 cups Rice Chex
  • two 2.5 oz dark chocolate bars (I use Eating Evolved Signature Dark)
  • 1 cup single-ingredient peanut butter (or use sunflower butter for a nut-free option!)
  • 1/4 cup ghee
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups monkfruit powdered sugar


  1. Measure Chex into one large bowl and set aside.

  2. In a small saucepan over the stove, or a microwavable bowl, melt together chocolate, peanut butter (or SunButter if nut-free) and ghee on low heat until fully liquid, stirring constantly. Stir in vanilla extract. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring gently and until evenly coated. Pour half of mixture into large 2-gallon resealable storage bag.

  3. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag and shake until well coated. Spread on parchment paper to cool, or go ahead and start making your holiday gift jars. Store in airtight container in refrigerator or freezer. Yum! :)
