Growing up we loved muddy buddies, or puppy chow as we called it, and I’ve got to admit I still find it irresistible. There’s just something about crunchy cereal coated with chocolate and powdered sugar. I usually make puppy chow with peanut butter, but with summer in the air, I had to try making S’mores Muddy Buddies with graham cracker cereal, Hershey’s chocolate, and marshmallows. It’s a fun treat to take with you on your summer outings and vacations!
Measure out Golden Grahams cereal and mini marshmallows (I used crunchy Jet Puffed Mallow Bits) in a large bowl and put them aside.
Melt mini Hershey’s Kisses and shortening in the microwave and stir until smooth. Pour the mixture over the cereal and marshmallows and stir to coat.
Add the powdered sugar and stir until well coated. Add a few more mini Kisses and marshmallows, if you want, and pour onto waxed paper to cool and set.
These S’mores Muddy Buddies are such a fun recipe for summer! Be sure to keep this one to make with the kids while they are on summer break. It’s the perfect recipe for kids to help with and it won’t heat up the kitchen.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting a recipe for this w/o pb or Nutella. My nephew is allergic to peanuts and my brother-in-law is allergic to tree nuts, so trying to find recipes without either is really difficult. This is awesome!!!
Fantastic! I’m so glad you found this one!
I mean we should be allowed to cheat sometimes. This is looking so yummy. Cant resist! I will try it. Hope I can get the same results as yours. xx
