Muddy Buddies Crunch Bars

Raven Higheagle


Captain is the perfect cereal for these bars. It’s fairly neutral in flavor, so all you taste is the peanut buttery chocolate goodness.

You know when you’re eating traditional muddy buddies and you find a cluster of a few chex that stuck together? Those are the best because there’s pockets of chocolate and peanut butter inside. These bars are just like those tasty clusters. Every nook and cranny is filled with chocolate peanut butter magic! The dusting of powdered sugar on top just seals the deal.
