Strawberry Muddy Buddies

As promised, I bring you Strawberry Muddy Buddies.  This is the finally snack I made for my daughter's Valentine's Day Party this week.  It isn't much different from the original recipe, omitting the peanut butter and mixing in strawberry gelatin powder in with the powdered sugar making and awesome strawberry and chocolate mixture.  A great snack for youngster. You could play with other gelatin flavors for different holidays or occasions, I however have not tried them yet.  

Perhaps an Orange and Chocolate concoction for Halloween?

Strawberry Muddy Buddies

9 Cups Chex or Crispix Cereal (I used half Corn Chex and half Wheat Chex)
1 1/2 Cups Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
1/3 Cup Butter or Margarine
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1 box ( 8 Servings) Strawberry Flavored Gelatin

In a large microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate and butter uncovered on high for 1 minute.  Stir.  Microwave for 15-30 seconds longer if needed.  Stir and mix in vanilla.  In a large gallon ziploc bag add powdered sugar and gelatin.  Shake to mix up.  Add cereal to chocolate and mix to coat.  Add chocolate coated cereal to ziploc bag and shake until all cereal is covered in powdered sugar.  Spread on wax paper and cool for about 15 minutes.  Store in airtight container.

Thank you so much for this recipe!! I can't tell you how excited I am to make these for my daughter who is allergic to peanut butter. I have 2 older daughters who love these with the peanut butter, but I can't let my youngest eat them due to her allergy. I have tried with no PB but they do not taste good. She loves strawberry, so I am delighted to have found this and will be trying these soon! Thank you!
