Finally the last version is called Sweet and Salty Muddy Buddy. You can find the original at Family Food and Travel. This made a nice sized batch without having to double it.
9 cups Chex Cereal
2 cups Bite Sized Pretzels
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup smooth peanut butter
½ cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp course salt
2 cups powdered Sugar
Place cereal and pretzels in a large bowl and set aside.
In a microwaveable dish combine chocolate chips, peanut butter, butter and vanilla.
Microwave mixture on high for 30 seconds. Stir. Repeat until mixture is fully combined and smooth.
Sprinkle course salt over the top of cereal mixture.
Pour mixture over cereal and pretzels and combine.
Pour powdered sugar into a large ziploc bag, pour in the cereal mixture, shake until coated.
Place coated cereal mixture on a large sheet of waxed paper or parchment paper to cool and harden a bit.
Store in ziploc containers or bags.
This one was also a hit. I loved the pretzels!
