Easy Holiday Treats
This post is sponsored by Walmart.
Each holiday season we like to make treats to deliver to friends and neighbors. I love to keep it simple, because we all know this time of year can feel kind of hectic at times!
One of my favorite treats to make are Muddy Buddies! They are a family favorite and so simple!
To save me some extra time I ordered my groceries through the Walmart app using my Walmart+ membership. We love being Walmart+ members because of the amazing benefits like unlimited free delivery ($35 order minimum. Restrictions apply.) We also get free shipping from Walmart.com without an order minimum (excludes most Marketplace items, location & freight surcharges) and enjoy the same everyday low prices! Click here to check out the 15 day free trial! It has been such a blessing for our busy family of 8!
When I make Muddy Buddies I just follow the back of the Chex cereal box. We like to add in Christmas m&m's, marshmallows, and other candies like chopped Ande's mints, and peppermints etc. You can really add whatever sounds good to you or keep it simple!
The recipe suggests using a large ziploc bag to mix everything in, but I like to use a large mixing bowl because we usually double or triple the recipe!
Here is a great large mixing bowl.
Chex Mix Muddy Buddies:
9 cups Rice Chex Cereal
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Into large bowl, measure cereal, set aside.
In 1 quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High for 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable plastic bag. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated.
We then like to add in the m&m's and other candies to make it look more festive for the Holidays, and extra candy always sounds like a good idea to me!
This year we delivered the treats in Rubbermaid containers, but these gift bags are a great option too!
I love using my Thyme and Table dishes! They are high quality, adorable and a great price! I have linked a bunch of my favorites below, including the bowl from above! (You can also click the image to shop).
Here are a few other kitchen items from Walmart I am loving!
