Lucky Leprechaun Puppy Chow (Muddy Buddies)

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up soon, I thought it would be fun to whip up a little leprechaun-themed snack for the kids.

St Patrick's Day Snack: Lucky Leprechaun Muddy Buddies (aka Puppy Chow)


Lucky Leprechaun Puppy Chow (aka Muddy Buddies)


  • 6 Cups Chex cereal
  • 1 Cup green chocolate candy melts
  • 1/4 Cup peanut butter
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 ½ Cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Cup Lucky Charms cereal


In a large, microwave safe bowl combine the candy melts, peanut butter, and butter. Microwave for 30 seconds, then stir. Continue to alternate microwaving for 30 seconds & stirring until the mixture is completed melted and has a smooth consistency.

Add your Chex cereal into the melted chocolate and stir until well-coated. Pour the chocolate-coated Chex onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and allow to cool.

Once cooled, transfer the Chex to a large ziploc baggie. Add the powdered sugar and shake until well coated. Add in the Lucky Charms and shake to mix.

Serve and enjoy! You can store any leftovers in an airtight container.
