Nutty Muddy Buddies: Pistachio and Chocolate Muddy Buddies

Lights...camera...action!
Hi everyone! Who is excited for the Oscars?! I know SO many of you are! You may be thinking, “I have my predictions…I have my TV…but I’m missing my Nutty Muddy Buddies!” No? You weren’t? Well, you should be! I’ve created a Pistachio Muddy Buddy recipe that can get pretty addicting! I’ve named it Nutty Muddy Buddies. It’s the perfect snack to munch on while you watch the Oscars.

Nutty Muddy Buddies
6 cups Rice Chex cereal
¼ cup butter, melted
½ cup sweetened condensed milk
1 cup vanilla flavored candy chips (the same used in our Cherry Bark) or chocolate chips
1 (3.4 oz) pistachio pudding mix
1 and ½ cup powdered sugar
1-2 cups mini chocolate chips
¾ cup American Pistachio Growers brand pistachios

Directions:
The key is to do everything FAST!
1.      Place cereal in a large bowl and set aside.
2.    In a small saucepan, combine the butter, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla or chocolate chips, until the chips have just melted.
3.    Mix your pistachio pudding mix into the hot mixture until just incorporated.
4.    Remove from heat and pour over the cereal. Mix as quickly as possible with a spoon and hands as needed.
5.    Add in the mini chocolate chips and pistachios, mix well.
6.    Toss quickly with powdered sugar.
7.    Let cool and enjoy!


It’s that easy! I must warn you, please look at your box of pistachio pudding mix and be aware of any allergies you are avoiding. The box I used had almonds in it. Also, there is a lot of sugar in this and, like I said, it is addicting! May not be suitable to swimsuit prep but hey…live a little! ;) It’s the Oscars!
