Happy St. Patrick’s Day friends! So I had all these fantastic ideas for RAINBOW WEEK on my blog last week but I ran out of time before we left on our trip to Disneyland. Oops. Oh well. If you have 10 minutes of free time today, you can whip up this easy St. Patrick’s Day treat for your friends or family.
Yes, it is the same recipe as regular muddy buddies but the key ingredient for these treats is mini M & M’s. It gives them a POP of RAINBOW color. Cute huh? Make a batch and then fill them with metallic green cupcake liners.
St. Patrick’s Day Muddy Buddy Recipe
9 cups of Rice Chex cereal
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1/4 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup mini M&M’s
12 green cupcake liners
1. Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.
2. 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.
