Chocolate Churro Muddy Buddies
Chocolate Churro Muddy Buddies - a collision of your classic Muddy Buddies & churros making the best cinnamon & sugar bite-sized treat.
Servings: 10 -12
- 1 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 9 cups Chex cereal
- 4 tablespoons butter + 1-2 tablespoon extra if needed, read note below
- 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon for topping, optional
In a small bowl add powdered sugar, brown sugar, white granulated sugar, and cinnamon; set aside.
Add chocolate chips & 4 tablespoons of butter in a small heat-safe bowl and melt in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between. This takes me about 1 - 1 1/2 minutes usually.
NOTE - depending on the chocolate and/or your microwave the chocolate might be a little chunky and not smooth from cooking too long or too high of heat. Don't worry! After a minute of heating, stir in an additional tablespoon of melted butter and stir well into the chocolate. Use an additional tablespoon if needed.
Add cereal into a large bowl, set aside.
Pour chocolate over cereal and stir until cereal is completely coated. Once coated, pour sugar mixture on top and mixture together to coat the chocolate covered cereal.
Once completely covered add an additional teaspoon of cinnamon on top of cereal and stir together one more time.
Serve immediately or store in the Ziplock bag for later. We love to keep ours stored in the fridge but on the counter works too!
