Halloween Muddy Buddies Mix Recipe 

Here’s what you’ll need (double these if you’re serving a crowd!): 

  • 4 cups of Chex cereal— choose rice, corn or both!
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup Nutella
  • ¼ - ½ cup butter— softened, not melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar — use more or less depending on the coating you like
  • 3 Square Organics Chocolate Coated Cookie Dough Bars— cut into ¼-inch pieces
  • 2 cups candy corn
  • ¼ cup candy eyeballs


  1. Add chocolate chips, butter and vanilla to a small pot and heat on low until the chocolate chips melt, stirring frequently.
  2. Add the Nutella and stir well to combine. This mixture should be pretty loose, like a sauce. If it’s sticky or dough-like, add more butter.
  3. Put your Chex cereal in a large bowl and then pour the warm chocolate mixture over it. Gently stir until the cereal is evenly coated.
  4. Grab a Half Gallon Stasher bag or Stand-Up Stasher bag and pour in half of your powdered sugar and half of your chocolate-covered cereal.
  5. Seal the Stasher, trapping us much air inside the bag as possible. Shake vigorously until the sugar has evenly coated the cereal.
  6. Pour it into a clean bowl and repeat with the second half of your sugar and cereal.
  7. Once all of your cereal is sugar-coated, mix in your protein bar pieces, candy corn and candy eyeballs. Enjoy!

Give your Stasher bag a quick wash (by hand or in the dishwasher) and stash what’s left of this can’t-stop-won’t-stop snack for safe keeping. It stays crunchy for up to a week, but let's be honest — it won't stick around that long.
