There are times in life when you just have to live a little, and Halloween is clearly one of those times.

I try not to serve up too many sugar-laden dishes, but this is the time of year when I like to surprise my son with little special somethings that cause giant red heart beams to shoot out of his eyes.

Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday, and if we can’t serve our families, friends, neighbors, and kids a sweet treat like Monster Muddy Buddies while watching Hocus Pocus is life really worth living?!?

I.don’t.think.so. 🎃🎃🎃

What are Muddy Buddies?

Muddy Buddies, aka Puppy Chow, is one of the easiest, most delicious sweet treats you can make in extra large batches. Muddy Buddies are loved by nearly everyone who eats them, and they’re a great dessert to make for gifts or ministry meals or to serve at parties, church potlucks, picnics, or movie night!

The classic Muddy Buddies recipe calls for melted chocolate, peanut butter, butter, vanilla, salt, Chex cereal, and powdered sugar, and no hot pans or baking is required!

Basically you throw everything together into a large bowl, melt it, mix it, dust it, and serve it.

Muddy Buddies Without Peanut Butter

The classic Muddy Buddies recipe calls for it, but it is possible to make muddy buddies &/or puppy chow without peanut butter!

There are kids in my son’s class who have nut allergies so if I were to make this recipe for them, I’d just eliminate the peanut butter and the butter.

Just melt the chocolate or candy melts as the recipe states and move forward without those two ingredients and you should be good to go!

To take a standard Muddy Buddies recipe over the top and to match the Halloween theme, I decided to add everyone’s favorite movie snack to the mix!

White chocolate covered pretzels and mini Oreos, Ghoulish M&Ms, buttered popcorn, candy eyes, yogurt covered raisins, and candy corn is what I threw into our mix, but the possibilities are endless!
