The Weekend & S'mores Muddy Buddy Snack Mix Recipe

We had a nice little weekend, although it came and went too fast. Keith had just one day off this weekend on Sunday, but we made the most of it Saturday night and Sunday.

Saturday our friends the Smith's invited us over for dinner and Sunday morning we drove a couple hours to my sister-in-law's house to swim and spend some time together. Owen adores his cousins and had the time of his life playing in the pool with them on all the floats. He really only got out of the pool to eat lunch and then again when we had to leave to head home.

I brought dessert to both gatherings, which totaled 4 desserts made on Saturday afternoon. I wanted to make them all simple since I had to make so many, so I made peanut butter cup brownies, build your own strawberry shortcakes, more brownies and the S'mores Muddy Buddy Snack Mix I'm sharing below. I think the snack mix was the most fun since it was a little different from the usual desserts we have and everyone loves chocolate and marshmallows, right?

But first, a few pictures from the pool!







 And in case you're interested, here is the recipe for the S'mores Muddy Buddy Snack Mix I made:


Ingredients
7 cups Golden Graham's cereal
3 cups mini marshmallows
2 1/2 cups chocolate chips
2/3 cups peanut butter
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Instructions

1. Pour cereal and marshmallows into a large bowl, mix. Set aside.
2. In a separate bowl melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter in the microwave, heating 30 seconds at a time and stirring until melted and smooth.
3. Pour over the cereal mixture and stir to coat. 
4. Add powdered sugar to a large container with a lid or an extra large zip top bag. Pour in the cereal mixture and shake to coat with the sugar.
5. Lay out in a single layer on wax paper until set. I added a few extra marshmallows too. Store in an airtight container.

And here are a few more S'mores recipes you might enjoy!



Enjoy!
