Nutella Muddy Buddies AKA Nutella Puppy Chow is sure to be a hit with kids and adults alike. Make a double batch because this stuff is addictive!
I just flipping love Nutella. It's one of life's simple pleasures. There is just something about the taste of it that makes me swoon. I love baking with it, and I love just eating it right out of the jar with a spoon.
These Nutella Muddy Buddies can also be found on Food Fanatic. I'm their chocolate fanatic, which is the perfect job for me. I mean if I had my pick of all the jobs in the world "chocolate fanatic" would be my pick. Every darn time.
I'm also a serious cereal fanatic if we're being honest. I am completely obsessed with cereal. I rarely eat cereal for breakfast. However, I bake with it endlessly. I'm not sure why. I just happen to find baking with cereal a ton of fun.
For me the ultimate cereal shopping experience is heading state-side to shop. The cereal choices in the U.S. are far superior to our choice here in Canada. Not even kidding. The U.S. grocery stores are like Disneyland for cereal lovers.
Every time we head over there to shop I lose my mind. Once I hit the cereal aisle I start to come unglued. All the choices, all those options, I just can't keep it together. I honestly start to skip through the aisles at some point. I can't help myself.
We always pick up Trix Cereal, as well as any other fun, bright, colourful cereal we see. Fruity Pebbles is another favourite. It's so fun and pretty, plus the taste is out of this world. I'm trying to find Ice Cream Pebbles, but thus far I haven't found them.
So if you see Ice Cream Pebbles please take pity on this poor Canadian girl. I would just love to receive one, or twenty, boxes in the mail. Seriously, the more the better. I'd love to bake something with them. They look so fun and bright.
While I wait for ALL the Ice Cream Pebbles to arrive I'll just keep on keeping on with all the other kinds of cereal. This recipe was so fun to make. Chex is perfect for making muddy buddies or puppy chow. It's so easy to make. Whip some up now!

These are highly problematic for me because once I get started I know I'll have a hard time stopping!!
My husband loves having muddy buddies in his lunches! He would love if I made these for him!
I don't blame him one bit. They make a great snack. Hope you make them for him. He would love these. They are, by far, my favourite flavour.

These things are EVIL! Addictive, delicious, and craveable. I am certain I would tackle someone to get to this bowl of tasty goodness!
Ha, I love your comment Dee Dee. Totally cracked me up. I'm never above tackling or nudging people when it comes to food. Glad I'm not alone.

I'm a big fan of puppy chow and Nutella-izing it??? YESSSSS
Ha, I love that word. Thanks so much Kayle. Nutella it up, my friend, Nutella everything in sight. Us Nutella addicts need to stick together.
Hi, I think this should have taken just a few minutes. My microwave must be very powerful because at 1 minute my Nutella, chocolate chips and butter was cooked, definitely not pourable and not even spreadable so I started over using a double boiler and had the same problem, as soon as the chocolate started to melt, the texture was like thick frosting. I ended up melting just a little more chocolate with a lot of butter added to the thick mixture and saved it. Not sure what a did wrong.
Hi Beverly. Thanks for letting me know. I'll remake this on the weekend and see if there's something up with the way the recipe is written. I'll keep you posted.
