Puppy chow, muddy buddies...call it whatever you'd like, this stuff is delicious and seriously addicting. I remember as a kid seeing the recipe on the box of Chex cereal wondering why my mother never thought to make this for me. Chocolate, nutella and confectioners sugar coating wonderfully crunchy cereal? A kid could only dream and now that I have my own house and my own kitchen I make this whenever we are having company over and I always get the same reaction....people just love this stuff!
If you've never had, you must stop everything you're doing, run to the nearest supermarket and make this immediately. I promise you won't regret it. Share it amongst friends or keep it all for yourself, that part I'll let you decide.
