Common Questions About Recipe Name

HOW DO I STORE CHURRO MUDDY BUDDIES?

Store in an airtight container for up to one week.

CAN I MELT THE CHOCOLATE A DIFFERENT WAY?

Of course, use a double boiler or make one by placing a glass bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. These are both great methods.

MELT CHOCOLATE MORE EASILY?

Coconut oil added to the chocolate will help it melt more smoothly.

WHAT IS THE BEST CHOCOLATE FOR MELTING?

Almond barks work very well, also you could try something like these melting wafers, they are really easy to work with.

DIFFERENT WAY TO MAKE?

Truly, this is a great method but you can also lay the cereal on the baking tray, pour the chocolate on top and then sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar, you get a nice even layer that you can control.
