White Chocolate PB&J Muddy Mix

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great Father’s Day weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ย  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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Hope you all enjoy!

Here’s the line up of ingredients

Oh man, I love this cereal, measure out 9 cups ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Time to shake it up!!

Yes! Now munch!


White Chocolate PB&J Muddy Mix

9 Cups Honey Nut Chex (or any chex variety you like)

3/4 Cup chopped white chocolate or white chocolate chips

1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter

1/4 Cup strawberry jam

2 Tablespoons butter

2 Cups powdered sugar

1. Place chex cereal in a large mixing bowl. Place chocolate, peanut butter, jam and butter into a microwavable safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute or until melted. Stir then pour into bowl of cereal. Mix well then divide mixture into 2 large ziplock bags. Pour in 1 Cup powdered sugar into each ziplock. Close bags and shake until cereal is coated. Pour into a large bowl and serve.

Serves A LOT!


Haveย  a great new week, see you soon!

    I would love this with white chocolate! I could eat it by the bucket full with milk chocolate, and I’m sure it would be the same with white. Yum!

    OMG, you seriously just stopped me and made me put my coffee down. We are HUGE puppy chow fans here, but since my hubby doesn’t like chocolate he always passes…but THIS, holy cow! I cannot wait to make this!

    Yummm! I’ve never made a puppy chow mix, but I’ve seen it before. I may just have to attempt this, since it looks pretty fail-proof.

    I recently had the traditional muddy buddies and realized I had forgotten just how tasty they are! They are addicting! I will definitely try this, but without the jelly – do you think they will still turn out if I just omit the jelly? I am not a PB & J fan, but I am definitely a white chocolate and peanut butter fan for sure! Love your website – you’ve got great recipes!

    Fuji Mama says:

    Woot! I always look forward to your PB&J recipes, and you didn’t disappoint with this one! I love the traditional muddy buddy mix and so I know I’ll love this one too!

    I just became a blogger myself two months ago and I never realized anything about leaving comments until then. I have been following you for some time. My sister turned me on to your site. I don’t just read, I make your food. We have had so much fun with your recipes before I even knew what food blogs were. Then I got to see you on TV and I was telling me husband to come and watch you on the Food Network. Thanks for all of your inspiration. We are both bloggers now.

    I love little munchy treats like this! Can’t wait to try it!
    And I cried at Toy Story as well! It was so good!

    Missy says:

    I was reading your recipe and was sooo suprised to see that you used Sarris’ white chocolate. We live close by(will actually be stopping there tomorrow) and I was tickled to see it. Their chocolate is the best!

    PS I was holding my sleeping 2 year-old son while watching Toy Story and I lost it. Not giving anything away when I talk about all of them holding hands, but that KILLED me and I was done for the rest of the movie. Thank goodness for the 3D glasses!

    I cannot WAIT to make these! I’ve always made the traditional chocolate/powdered sugar muddy buddies and my kids love them, but these look addictive.

    Your blog is wonderful, can’t wait to keep reading!

    Margo says:

    This recipe looks like such fun. It simply has to be included in the next kids birthday party we have around here. Thanks for the inspiration!

  34. 34

    I had something similar once, but it was called “Texas Trash” – it was a Christmas gift, and boy was it addictive. I love this kind of stuff! So more-ish!

    Laura says:

    Such a great idea and a nice change to the puppy chow mix, but would recommend using regular Rice Chex instead of the Honey Nut. I tried this last night and the Honey Nut is a little more crunchy at first, but makes it taste stale like the day after. Still yummy to eat though. You so own a patent on my taste buds.

    Natasha says:

    I always loved this as a kid, but I’ve never had it with the jam. I will definitely have to try it!

    Marcela says:

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

    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 had never heard of this but made it this weekend and it was a big hit for our jam night. But how could it go wrong its penut butter and jelly.

    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! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing!

    Jim says:

    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

    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
