I have been making this Puppy Chow, aka Muddy Buddies, since my kids were little and it’s always devoured. My girls now make it with their kids. It’s fun to get the kids to help make it along with you. After mixing everything together in the bowl (part 1) I put it in a paper grocery bag and put the powdered sugar in (part 2) and let the kids “shake it up”. They love that part, but not quite as much as eating it!

This recipe is super easy to make and it will make a lot of happy smiles with the kiddos (and kids at heart).
