Thin Mint Muddy Buddies

I was in the middle of preparing my Pinterest post for tomorrow and I was thinking of how much I really want to make the muddy buddies I'll share {tomorrow}. I was brainstorming the different variations I could make...the first one that I thought of was Snickers and then it dawned on me....THIN MINTS! Almost had a Obi-Wan/Luke Skywalker moment, except Obi-Wan was telling me "Use the Thin Mints, Sarah!"

I used those Thin Mints..

Well..okay, not all of them. I only have one box left and I put half a sleeve in the freezer for later. Now on to how you make these yummy muddy buddies!

What you need:
  • 3/4 Thin Mints in one box (a sleeve and a half)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • Chocolate Candiquik (I used half a package)
  • 6 cups Chex cereal

Crush Thin Mints with a rolling pin, hands, food processor, canned veggies, whatever you have in your cabinet! It helps if they are in a Ziploc bag first.

Add powdered sugar to the bag. Shake to combine.

Place your cereal in a large bowl.

Melt chocolate according to package directions.

Pour over your cereal and toss until coated.

Pour cereal into Ziploc bag with cookies and sugar.

And then devour :)
P.S. These are great if you have peanut allergies in your family, like we do!
P.P.S. I usually call these puppy chow. NOM.
