When you need a fast treat that will please everyone, make these Muddy Buddy Krispie Treats. They’re like eating muddy buddies in rice krispies treat form!

I feel like it’s been awhile since I told you what I’ve been reading. I’ve read a few books lately that were amazing, so I want to share my list with you. Let me know what you’re reading in the comments; I’m always looking for good books!

At the end of summer I let Jordan throw a pool party with her girlfriends. I always have treats on hand but I needed to make something dairy-free because a friend who is allergic to dairy was coming over. Now, if you’re thinking to yourself that Rice Krispies Treats are not dairy-free, don’t worry. They can be!

(Note: the dairy allergy we deal with is intestinal, not respiratory, and she is not affected by chocolate.)

I actually made versions of these all summer long – they’re my new favorite go-to dairy-free dessert because they’re done in just a few minutes with no baking. I simply replace the butter called for in the normal krispie treats recipe with vegetable oil. You can also use coconut oil! I add peanut butter to the mix as well, because I’ll never say no to peanut butter.

That last day of summer I was wondering what I could do to the treats to make them different and I immediately thought of muddy buddies!

Muddy Buddies are a sweet treat made with Chex cereal that’s coated with chocolate and peanut butter and then shaken in a bag of powdered sugar. It’s a messy heavenly snack that I cannot be around. Seriously, put me near a bowl of muddy buddies and they’ll be gone in 2 minutes flat.

So of course I decided to marry two iconic treats. I made my rice krispie treats with peanut butter and melted chocolate chips, and then I rolled the treats in powdered sugar before serving.

These disappeared very quickly, let me just tell you. #winner
