How to Make Rocky Road Muddy Buddies


  1. Measure cereal and 6 tablespoons of marshmallows (5/8 cup) into a large bowl, set aside.
  2. In a microwavable bowl (big enough to hold 1 cup of liquid) microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter for one minute.
  3. Stir, and add ice cream. Microwave until smooth, add vanilla.
  4. Add 6 tablespoons of marshmallows (5/8 cup) to the mixture until they start to slightly melt.
  5. Pour the mixture over cereal, stir with a rubber spatula until evenly coated.
  6. Use a large spoon (or whatever method works for you) to scoop the cereal into a gallon size plastic bag. Add powdered sugar and nuts.
  7. Seal bag and shake until coated. You can serve this whenever, I like it best warm and melty, and it's crunchier on the first day.
  8. Notes:
    *you can use any nut butter in place of peanut butter, even Nutella.
