Happy Happy Friday Friends.  Has the weather been getting warmer and more Spring like by you?  We had beautiful weather on Easter Sunday and I am loving having the windows open for some fresh air.  When in comes to food and spring weather I always think of grilling, salads, and bright colors for dessert.  Back in December when I shared a cupcake fail turned into peppermint muddy buddies experience with you, I was surprised by all your comments on loving the different recipe.  Don’t get me wrong I love the classic chocolate and peanut butter combo but if you’re looking for a fun seasonal alternative I created a Spring Muddy Buddies Mix Recipe.

The recipe isn’t necessarily the healthiest, #balance, but it’s simple and quick.  It uses Chex, white chocolate, powdered sugar, and I like the addition of popcorn and spring colored M&M’s to give the mix a nice pop of color.

It’s the perfect mix for an outdoor gathering, birthday party, shower, or anytime when you just don’t feel like baking a dessert.  But beware it’s totally addicting.

    I haven’t made muddie buddies in so long! I forgot how good they are. I never thought to add popcorn – such a good call!

      Yes I actually got the idea from working in a Pre-K classroom where they made an easter themed snack. Love the addition of popcorn.

    confession: I’ve never had muddy buddies or any version of it. I grew up overseas and it was definitely not a thing in England, so I only recently heard of it. Sound incredible though and this looks so cute- I love pastels!
