The kids are on summer vacation and always looking for snacks. I’m not sure if they are growing like weeds or if they are already bored (probably a little of both) but they always want to eat. My brother-in-law’s kids were here the other day and they were hungry too…so I fed them Orange Cream Muddy Buddies, aka Puppy Chow, and they gobbled it up in no time letting me know that it was REALLY GOOD!

Melt butter in the microwave and then stir in the sugar. Return to the microwave for 30 seconds, stir until smooth and then mix in vanilla extract and LorAnn orange oil. Pour the mixture over Rice Chex cereal and stir to coat. Heat the sugar coated cereal in the microwave for four minutes, stirring every minute. Spread the cereal on a foil lined pan.
Allow the white chocolate and candy melts to cool and harden before breaking the muddy buddies apart. They look pretty stored in wide mouth mason jars.
These Orange Cream Muddy Buddies are great for taking with you on your summer adventures from a picnic at a local park to a family road trip. The combination of sweet vanilla and citrusy orange is perfect for summer.
