White Chocolate PB&J Muddy Mix

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great Father’s Day weekend 🙂  We took the boys to see Toy Story 3 Saturday evening and I was a mess, did you guys see it? Talk about a tear jerker! I haven’t cried like that in a movie in a long time. How embarrassing. We LOVED it, can’t wait to buy it on video 🙂

So, I’ve got a great kid friendly snack for you today. We all love our traditional “puppy chow” or “muddy mix” so I’ve created a Peanut Butter and Jelly version that you guys are going to LOVE! I’m talking white chocolate, peanut butter and jelly mixed up with honey nut chex cereal and powdered sugar….yum.

Easy, perfect for summer and great for getting the kids in the kitchen to make a midday snack 🙂  Hope you all enjoy!

Here’s the line up of ingredients

Oh man, I love this cereal, measure out 9 cups 🙂

I used Sarris’s White Chocolate Bloc and chopped it up, but you can also use white chocolate chips

Add you chocolate, peanut butter, jelly and butter into a microwave safe bowl and heat until melted.

perfect, nice and melted. Now stir until well combined.

Pour your cereal into a giant mixing bowl…

Pour in your melted chocolate mixture…

Give it a big stir 🙂

Time to shake it up!!

Yes! Now munch!

    You’re so interesting! I do not suppose I’ve truly read anything like
    that before. So wonderful to discover somebody with some unique thoughts on this issue.
    Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up. This site is something that’s needed on the internet,
    someone with a little originality!

    My friend Elise and I just made a batch and they turned out great! We used unflavored wheat cereal squares instead of chex, crunchy peanut butter, and blueberry plum jelly. DELISH

    The cat is doin it right! Why bother walking if you can take a walk while chilling like a boss? Those humans are really handy.

    This recipe is…AMAZING!! My only recommendations are to change the Honey Nut Chex to Regular Rice Chex, substitute the white chocolate with milk chocolate, and forget the strawberry jam all together.

    But other than that LOVE IT!

    Talk to you later foxy ladaayy

    Muddy mix is one of the few foods I eat uncontrollably. As dangerous as it may be, I can’t wait to try your twist on the recipe! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    My 15 year old is going camping with a friend and her family, and this is a great snack to pack for her to take along. She loves puppy chow and this would be a fun recipe to try out on her!

    I love the powdered sugar “snow” on this decadent treat! I could imagine grabbing handfuls with a big smile on my face 🙂

    I am excited about this recipe because it is made with white chocolate but do you have substitute ideas for those allergic to PB?
