Powder Pillows Recipe

Powder Pillows


This is basically the Chex recipe for Muddy Buddies, I thought I'd give it another nickname. Serves 9.

  • 4.5 cups of Chex cereal/similar generic brands
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/8 cup of butter/margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup of powdered sugar

How to make Powder Pillows

  1. Put cereal in a large bowl
  2. In another bowl, set chocolate chips, peanut butter, and the butter/margarine in your choice of method to melt the ingredients (microwave or stove top)
  3. Stir consistently if using the stove to prevent the mixture from burning. If using a microwave, use it on high for a minute, stir and then add 30 more seconds until it is smooth
  4. Once melted, pour the chocolate peanut butter mixture over the cereal and stir carefully with a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula
  5. Pour the cereal coated mixture into a large plastic bag
  6. Add powdered sugar into bag and shake until evenly covered
  7. Pour finished snack onto a cookie sheet to cool
  8. Enjoy and refrigerate the rest in a closed container

    My family always called these "sweet nothings" My favorite part of making them was tossing them around in a clean garbage bag! I liked eating them out of the garbage bag....... :)
