Christmas Muddy Buddies

We love muddy buddies. Which can be a really bad thing when you are making a bunch of them and they call your name and you just want to eat them and and eat them and eat them….Not that that’s ever happened to us. Anyway, if you have a holiday party that you need a treat for or if you are looking for a great neighbor gift idea, these holiday flavored muddy buddies with cute Christmas tags could be just the thing!


Seriously, I think we are in love! Especially with these Marshmallow snowman ones. SO good! And so cute!

Muddy Buddies for Christmas

Christmas Muddy Buddies:

Marshmallow Muddy Buddies:

(I’ll tell right now that these were both of our favorite of this batch of muddy buddies! SO good!)


  • 9 C Rice Chex
  • 2 C white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 C butter
  • 1/2 C marshmallow fluff
  • 1 1/2 C powdered sugar
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • White Sixlets
  • White Sprinkes (optional)


Melt your white chocolate and butter. This part is tricky because white chocolate can be finicky. Your best bet is probably to do it slowly on the stove. You can also microwave it, just be sure not to cook too long without stirring. Heat and mix till melted, then stir in the marshmallow fluff until it is melted also.

Put your Chex in a big bowl and then pour your white chocolate mixture over it and stir till it’s covering the Chex evenly.

Sprinkle on your powdered sugar and mix till it covers the Chex.

Sprinkle on mini marshmallows and Sixlets and sprinkles.

Eat up!
