Chocolate is melted over rice chex cereal with Nutella hazelnut spread, then tossed with powdered sugar for delicious, gluten free Nutella Buddies!
After almost 5 years on the blog, today I’m updating this popular recipe for Nutella Buddies with some slight changes to the recipe and some lovely new pictures!
No matter whether you call it puppy chow or muddy buddies, I know I’m not the only one who was obsessed with this delicious sweet snack as a kid! It was always a favorite at school holiday parties, birthday parties and just a delicious snack to have around the house!
As an adult I’ve become totally obsessed with Nutella, see: Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups with Nutella, Nutella Rice Krispie Treats, Nutella Cream Cheese Cinnamon Rolls, Nutella Brookies, Nutella Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies, and the list goes on and on!
Back in 2012, I decided to add Nutella to my favorite childhood sweet snack, muddy buddies and create Nutella Buddies! I’ve made this recipe about a dozen or so times since then and have learned that Nutella does not melt well, and if you simply mix it into the butter and chocolate after they’re melted in the microwave, you get a much smoother nutella butter chocolate “sauce” to coat your rice chex cereal. Even distribution is key here people, we don’t want half of the chex cereal hogging all of the chocolate nutella goodness 😉
Now I feel confident with this updated recipe that you can go forth and make the best dang Nutella Buddies, Nutella Puppy Chow, Nutella Muddy Buddies, ever!!
Sometimes the simplest things are just so delicious! Oh, and did I mention, they’re also gluten-free!
An easy recipe to make for holiday parties, Superbowl parties, birthday parties, or a Tuesday, because Tuesdays deserve delicious treats too 😉
