Muddy Buddies, Puppy or Bunny Chow?

This tasty little snack mix goes by many names. Perhaps you know it as Puppy Chow or Muddy Buddies – whatever you call it, it’s delicious and hard to resist! Really hard! With Easter around the corner,  it’s easy to turn your Muddy Buddies recipe into Bunny Chow!

We use white chocolate instead of milk chocolate and added some seasonal candy-coated chocolate eggs and the combo is soooo good!

Everyone also loves our Reindeer Chow [1] during the Christmas holiday. 

Turn Muddy Buddies into an Easter Treat - Bunny Chow! This tasty snack idea is good for parties or just snacking. Careful - it’s gone in a flash!


We originally thought of using seasonal M&Ms in the mix, but somehow Target was out {not sure how that’s even possible this time of year}. However, they did have some larger Easter Milk Chocolate Eggs and we think the swap worked out even better!

The kids enjoy Bunny Chow as a little treat in their lunches. We think some of their classmates are jealous! Truly it’s good at any time of the day.
