MUDDY BUDDIES — one snack to make you the best team parent EVER

One thing you should know about me — love to throw away random items from our food pantry.  Two days ago I see this box of Chex.  It’s not stale, but it has been there for sometime.  I was going to toss it — and then I see this recipe on the side.  It’s gluten free . . . hmmmm.
We have all the ingredients.  (No, it’s NOT Paleo.)  I made it for my kids . . .  maybe.
I made this — only used 1/4 of what they asked for on the powdered sugar — wow!  It is a great little go to snack.  Even at 2:30 in the morning when you wake up . . . don’t tell my dentist.
Have a great Saturday — off to playoff Soccer!
