White Muddy Buddies!

Who here likes Puppy Chow?!

I know some of you call it Muddy Buddies as well, but I’ve decided to change things up a bit and make a White Chocolate version of this addicting and easy treat. You guys all know how much I LOVE white chocolate, so I was a huge fan of how this turned out.

I took this to my moms for the nieces and nephews to try out as well, and they also loved it. I took a little home and tried to hide it from the kids but that didn’t work out too well. It was gone before I could even get to enjoy anymore myself. I shouldn’t be surprised though because that’s usually what happens here.

Bottom line, I found another quick and DELISH treat that we will be able to enjoy for Movie Night. 🙂

As mentioned, this recipe is super easy and doesn’t take long to make. It’s perfect for parties or any other get-togethers you may be having or attending.

YUMMY!!! If you’re a fan of milk chocolate, all you have to do is use Milk Chocolate chips instead of the White Chocolate chips to turn it back to the original Muddy Buddy version. Pretty easy.

  1. yummy!! I love Puppy Chow Mix (that’s what we call it). Can’t wait to try it with white chocolate chips…which I love. Thanks for the great idea!!

  2. You can definitely see your expertise in the work you write.
    The world hopes for even more passionate writers such as
    you who aren’t afraid to mention how they believe. All the time go after your heart.

  3. I was so happy finding this version using white chocolate, as that’s the chips I have on hand. But i’m confused. Your list of ingredients says to use 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, yet in your directions it says to pour 3 cups powdered sugar into a large ziploc bag?? Which is the correct amount?

  4. 4 stars
    I made this tonight, and while it was pretty tasty, my butter, peanut butter, white chocolate, vanilla extract mixture got very thick at the end, and it didn’t spread very well throughout my chex. I double checked my measurements, and I followed the instructions to a T, so I don’t know what happened. any ideas on how to prevent this in the future?

    1. I’m not sure what could have happened. Did you leave it on the stove long enough to melt really well? Try leaving it on longer, on low, stirring and hopefully, that will help 🙂 Let me know! Thanks so much for giving it a try!!
