Muddy Buddies

I’ve always enjoyed Muddy Buddies, and now that I have celiac, I eat them a lot more because they’re naturally gluten free. We always seem to have Rice Chex around the house now, as well as the rest of the ingredients. I’ve even used milk chocolate chips, and it was still delicious. This recipe is straight from Chex itself, and it’s always a winner. Sometimes we’ll even put in seasonal M&Ms to add color and fun, like Valentine or Halloween M&Ms.

And of course this one is naturally gluten free.
