Add a festive twist to a classic party treat!


If you’re a muddy buddy fan and love all things festive, this recipe is for you! This fun twist on a classic treat is sure to be a hit at your next party or get together! I can remember making Muddy Buddies with my mom after school in the fall and my favorite part was adding the powdered sugar in and watching the ooey-gooey mess turn into a fantastic snack! The first time that I made it with my kids they had fun helping me, and I recommend this for any fun family recipe to try out! It’s definitely on our list for sharing at our Halloween get-together and that’s why I am excited to share it with you!

One thing about this recipe is that it’s quick! I know that families have a lot of their schedules during this time of the year, so this easy recipe is great for putting together when you don’t have the time to bake or have a several step process.  I can’t forget to tell you that I also like this one because it is popular with the kids, and it’s a great for the adults to grab while chatting with friends. It would also make a really cool gift wrapped up in a treat bag or gift box! (Which could be a fun way to treat your kids’ teachers or school staff, day care providers, or even your co-workers!)
