ISO: Turtle Chocolate Chex Mix Recipe

Have you all tasted the new Chix mixes that are out now? I am obsessed with the Turtle Chocolate Chex Mix:

I'd love to just make it at home. While it seems like a relatively simple endeavor, I am perplexed as to how to get the chocolate taste (powder?) onto the ingredients.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions on how to make this at home. Thanks a bunch!

  1. Never had the commercial stuff so I don't know if this will be quite the same. But it's easy. It's good. It has chocolate.

    I haven't used this recipe since my son was in elementary school. He just graduated from college in June.

    Muddy Buddies

    • 4 1/2 cup Chex cereal, your choice or mix 'em up
    • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
    • 1/4 cup peanut butter
    • 2 tablespoon butter
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar

    Put cereal in a large bowl and set aside.

    Melt chocolate, peanut butter and butter in the microwave for approximately 2 minutes stirring once OR in a saucepan over low heat stirring often. Remove from heat or microwave and stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal and stir gently until all the cereal pieces are evenly coated.

    Put powdered sugar into a ziplock bag. Pour in the coated cereal. Seal the bag. Aggitate until the coated cereal is completely covered with the sugar.

    Spread on waxed paper or a cookie sheet to cool. Cooling time can be reduced to minutes by placing the mixture in a single layer in the freezer.

    NOTE: It's important that you NOT use reduced-fat margarine as it will cause the chocolate to "seize" and not coat the cereal.

    Makes 4 1/2 cups
