Muddy Buddies

Print Recipe

Muddy Buddies (also known as puppy chow) is an easy no bake treat! It only requires a few ingredients- rice cereal, HomePlate Peanut Butter, chocolate chips, butter, powdered sugar & fun marshmallows (or a topping of your choice)!

Made in 5 minutes or less, this might be one of the easiest desserts of all time! 




  • 6 cups rice cereal
  • 1.5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup HomePlate Honey Peanut Butter
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Decorative marshmallows and/or your favorite topping


  • Measure out the your cereal into a large bowl and set aside
  • Measure out the powdered sugar - add it into a gallon sized ziploc bag and set aside
  • In a microwave safe bowl, add your chocolate chips, HomePlate Honey Peanut butter and butter.
  • Microwave for 30 seconds, stir and repeat until all ingredients are mixed thoroughly.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the bowl of cereal. Use a large spoon/spatula to stir to ensure the cereal is evenly coated with the chocolate/pb mixture.
  • Add the chocolate/pb covered cereal to the large ziploc with the powdered sugar.
  • Close the ziploc tightly and shake until the cereal is completely covered with the powdered sugar.
  • Pour the cereal onto a large cookie sheet or parchment paper to dry.
  • Once dried, add your decorative marshmallows/favorite topping!
  • Your puppy chow should stay fresh in an air tight container for 3-4 days.
