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!

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

    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.

  3. Maggy@ThreeManyCooks

    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!

  4. Margo

    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!

  5. Silver Strands

    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!

  6. Missy

    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!

  7. Jessica Gray

    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!

  8. Gaby

    I am certain that if I made this I would have to hide it from myself because it would be gone in 10 seconds!!!!! I love the flavors! omg yum

    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.

    We saw Toy Story 3 this afternoon and it definitely was a tear-jerker. I would have loved a bag of this treat with me in the movie theatre.

  12. Fuji Mama

    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!

  13. Yvonne

    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!

  14. Jen @ How To: Simplify

    You are the queen of PB&J creativity when it comes to recipes. I love this recipe!

  15. Double Dipped Life

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who cried!!! Thanks for validating me! This recipe is an interesting twist on puppy chow- I’ll have to try it.

  16. Amanda

    Looks delicious! You definetly were not the only one to cry at the movie I was bawling my eyes out. Such a good movie!!!!

  17. Lizzy

    I love the variation what is already such an amazing snack! I’m going to try it with the strawberry freezer jam I just made this weekend.

  18. Angela (Diary of a Deaf Girl)

    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.

  19. luanne johnson

    I’m so glad I wasn’t the only one crying at the movie! It was so good! Also always love your recipes!

  20. Debbi Does Dinner Healthy

    Big shock. You making a PB&J recipe! Just kidding, all that you make are great ideas and delicious! Thanks for another one.

  21. Sue

    This sounds great! I have been toying with the idea of rocky road puppy chow, but haven’t been able to figure out how to do it. If you have any ideas please let me know.

  22. shelly (cookies and cups)

    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!

  23. Amy

    Can’t wait to see Toy Story 3. I have a feeling this treat will be a favorite of my son’s…he’s all about PB&J. Thanks for sharing it.

  24. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is

    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!

  25. clumbsycookie

    I can’t wait to see Toy Story 3, my friend also cried like a baby 😉 That’s yummy stuff what you did there!!!
