    I love regular muddy buddies so much, but we can't make them too often because we eat the whole bowl in one sitting. I also love cake batter so this seems like an amazing treat. Thanks for sharing!

    Are those extra sprinkles added in just for the picture, or did you serve them that way?

  11. 11

    I added them in for the picture, but you could definitely add them into the recipe too. If you do, I might recommend stirring some into the almond bark so that they stick to the chex cereal better. Otherwise, they will be loosely in the mix and not really get eaten.

    J just made this and its delicious!! If I, correction, WHEN I make it again I'll probably do 1 1/4 cup cake mix and 1/4 cup powdered sugar. It just seemed like I had a lot of "powder" left over. Very good though.

    I'm so in trouble with all these recipes you've been posting lately! NOM :)

  24. 24

    These were delish! I used half rice and half corn chex, and used vanilla cake mix. I also mixed in some sprinkles to the sugar/cake mix to give it a little color. Great snack, thanks!

    Awesome! Finally something that doesn’t contain peanuts!! More recipes like this please…you have no idea how difficult it is having a now 17 year old with life threatening allergies to nuts. Being in the room is all it takes.. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    My husband has been leaving this page open on my laptop and begging me to make this. I gathered the ingredients while shopping today and truth be told dreaded having to bake or cook anything since it was my only day off in over a week. I took a look at the recipe and thought why not? It only took me 8 minutes start to finish to make these. They look perfect and taste great. I’ll be making these I’m sure every day for a week and expected to now during holidays. Great share, my husband loves you for it.
