A Yummily, Dirt-ay Super Bowl Snack

by thegspot

Anyone else love Chex® Muddy Buddies® as much as we do? When we found out that good ol' Chex were gluten-free and that we could whip up this childhood favorite with a vegan spin, we were S-O-L-D.

And it's just in a nick of time for Super Bowl festivities — you can whip this snack-ity, snack up in no time flat (15 minutes!). Ah, and we also get to introduce to you our ultra-fab, regular feature …. Fakin' It!

Here's the original recipe, and here are our Fakin' It swaps:

Fakin It Chex® Muddy Buddies® (Gluten-free, soy-free and vegan)

(Print this recipe!)

  • 9 cups of Corn Chex® and Rice Chex® cereal — just divvy it up! (You can also use Chocolate Chex® cereal if you are coco-crazy.)
  • cup Enjoy Life semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup Earth Balance Soy-Free Naturally "Buttery" Spread
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free powdered sugar

Follow the same directions as indicated in the original recipe, only with your Fakin' It ingredients.

  1. Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.
  2. In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
  3. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

Makes 18 servings (1/2 cup each)
