A little Christmas yummy for you!

I have a little friend that had her 11th birthday yesterday, so I made her a batch of Chex Muddy Buddies and put it in a cleaned out formula canister.

I decorated the can with some of the November kit. I thought the Jenni Bowlin Studios paper was perfect for this!

You could also use an old hot chocolate can- or even a new one and leave the hot chocolate inside!Chex Muddy Buddies recipe:

Ingredients




9
cups Corn Chex®, Rice Chex®, Wheat Chex® or Chocolate Chex® cereal (or combination)
1cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2cup peanut butter
1/4cup butter or margarine
1teaspoon vanilla
11/2cups powdered sugar


Preparation Directions
1.Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.
2.In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
3.Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

GREAT idea! I am re-using some veggie cans for a goodie bag for Wrapper's delight....not covering with paper.....this time! Yours turned out so cute!
