My favorite holiday snack is called "Muddy Buddies". This started one year at my friend Amy Treadwell's house. I was eating this fantastic snack that her family made with chocolate, peanut butter, cereal and powered sugar. Ever since them I make it all season long to bring it to any event I go to.
I posted the recipe below so you can make "Muddy Buddies" a part of your family tradition. They also have the nutritional information posted but that's stupid when it comes to this snack. Me, Amy and her bother Matt use to always hang on on Christmas night and play board games and eat mudy buddies. I can recall me and Amy with powered sugar all over our faces from eating so much. I believe that Amy has even eaten this for breakfast with milk. A great way to start the day. haha.
