JM had a game tonight and informed me as he was going out the door that I was supposed to bring snacks tonight. Eeek! Thankfully, I had the ingredients to make Muddy Buddies which I know everyone on his cheering squad loves so I made two big batches. When I got to the game, he informed me that he was wrong and I'm supposed to bring snacks next week. (sigh)
Here's the recipe if you'd like to try these:
Chex Muddy Buddies

Pour cereals into large bowl; set aside. In 1 quart microwave-safe bowl combine chocolate chips, peanut butter and margarine. Microwave on HIGH 1 to 11/2 minutes or until smooth, stirring after 1 minute*. Stir in vanilla. Pour chocolate mixture over cereals, stirring until all pieces are evenly coated.
