Peanut Butter Brownie Muddy Buddies | Secret Recipe Club

peanut butter brownie muddy buddies

It’s time for another Secret Recipe Club reveal, This month I got the blog Cupcakes with Sprinkles. Meghan seems to love lemon desserts as much as I do, but I decided to go in a different direction for this month. This is the second month in a row I’ve made chocolate and peanut butter for SRC.

Until I made these I had never made Muddy Buddies. Once a couple of Christmases ago I made Poppy Chow which is made with popcorn and is a play on the other name given to Muddy Buddies, Puppy Chow, but I’d never used the cereal.

In a way it’s a good thing I’d never made it before because it’s addicting, and now I want to try other flavor combinations like Thin Mint Muddy Buddies or Cookies and Cream Muddy Buddies

  • 2 1/2 cups corn Chex
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup dry boxed brownie mix


  1. Place cereal in a medium bowl and brownie mix in a zip top gallon bag.
  2. Melt chocolate chips and peanut butter in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, or in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. I used the double boiler method because my microwave burns chocolate no matter how careful I am.
  3. Pour the chocolate and peanut butter over the cereal and stir well to coat all the pieces.
  4. Pour the cereal into the bag with the brownie mix, close and shake to coat.
  5. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in an airtight container.

    OMGee – this caught my attention right off the bat. No doubt I’ll be making this! 🙂

    • They are amazing. I was a bit weirded out with the dry brownie mix because I was afraid it would taste too much like flour but it works really well.

      I have a few more muddy buddy ideas floating around in my head.

  2. Those look dangerously addicting and delicious.

  3. Hi!!!! So I got partnered with you this month and made your AMAZING Mexican Rice!!!! Your blog is incredible – saved so many recipes for later!

  4. I loooove muddy buddies! Such a classic, fun treat. Yummy!

  5. Wish I had some of these to snack on right now… they look delicious! Great SRC pick!

  6. I’ve also made the puppy chow sort of thing, but the dry brownie mix also intrigues me… interesting that it works so well. I wonder if you could just toss them in a mixture of sugar and cocoa? (as the partial box of brownie mix would become one of those dusty things in the cupboard, I suspect)

    What an absolutely fun thing to make with kids. I can’t wait to try.

  8. Those do sound good! I like puppy chow and anything with chocolate, so I may need to try this one! 🙂

  9. Oh my goodness does this look divine! I’m sure I could eat the entire bowl, lol. I’d love for you to share this at Mix it up Monday:

    I hope to see you soon 🙂


  1. […] you’ll need some goodies to put in your bag. I would suggest chocolate peanut butter bark, peanut butter brownie muddy buddies, peppermint patty muddy buddies or Kit Kat muddy […]
