Chex Giveaway

About a year ago I was training a new nurse and I found out that she had Celiac Disease. Now, I love bread and knew that that disease would be so hard for me. But then I found out so many things contain gluten - it is everywhere (even soy sauce!). Then a friend of mine's 11 year old daughter was diagnosed. She was having a hard time because she felt she was restricted from so many things. One of her favorite dishes was cold cereal. Well, I found out Chex is gluten free (except the wheat of course)! Lucky for her, she can still have one of my favorite treats - Muddy Buddies! (They also have lots of other gluten free recipes)

Muddy Buddies
recipe courtesy of chex.com
9 c Rice Chex®, Corn Chex® or Chocolate Chex® cereal (or combination)
1 c semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 c peanut butter
1/4 c butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c powdered sugar

In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

Tip: Freeze your Muddy Buddies - you will never go back! The only downside is you do have to wait at least 15 more minutes to taste these frozen goodies.

You are in luck! Chex is giving away a this prize pack:

Want to win the prize? Leave a comment telling me what your favorite Chex Treat is before Friday, September 4th at midnight MST.

I LOVE muddy buddies! They are a favorite road trip treat. I also love the homemade sweet chex mix...coconut, golden grahams, rice chex, m&m's in a sticky candy coating. Mmmmm...

My mom makes the homemade Chex Mix recipe that she still has from the 70's . She tweaks it a little and makes it her own, but it is seriously addictive.

I love muddy buddies. But I used to make my own chex mix, I called it melted chex. I would melt a little butter, put chili powder,cumin,coriander,garlic powder and pepper together. It is always a good snack.

My favorite is definitely Muddy Buddies! I grew up knowing it by three different names and I still like to interchange them: Muddy Buddies, Puppy Chow (super cute if you serve it in an oversized dog bowl), and Monkey Munch.

My grandma created her very own recipe for chex mix. We call them "party snacks". Every time I go to her house she has a old chex cereal boxes filled to the brim with her home made party snacks. During the holidays it has become tradition to bake up a batch. They are soooo yummy and kinda spicy with a hint of tobasco sauce and touch of bacon. Delicious!!!!!!!


Told the facebook world about your giveaway!! Please Bless I win :)
