This Crispy Muddy Buddies recipe is an easy snack recipe that can be whipped up in no time!
Muddy Buddies (or Puppy Chow, depending on where you’re from) are one of my family’s favorite snacks. I have so much fun coming up with new flavor combinations and mix-ins.
My family cannot get enough of the chocolatey-peanut buttery goodness.
What really adds a little something extra to this version are the crispy chocolate candies. They add a little extra crispy, chocolatey goodness to the treat.
I’ve never seen them before. I’m a Peanut M&M’s® kinda gal. However, one bite of M&M’s® Crispy and I was hooked! I just knew they would be the perfect mix-in my for my Muddy Buddy recipe.
