Forget the Apple Orchard

Now that fall is here I have really been wanting to go to the apple orchards. I blame pinterest really.. all of these delicious recipes and cute crafts for kids. Of course, then there is facebook, all of your friends posting their pics of fresh apple doughnuts, hot apple cider and kids smiling from ear to ear, apple in hand, under the trees.

Reality check. It’s like a 2 hour drive to the closest orchard. You have to wait in line and they may call “no more pickers” before you even get there. The kids can’t reach most of the apples and the cider and doughnuts.. ok.. I’ve got nothing on them. I’m sure they are fantastic, lol, but you get the idea. If you can’t make it out to the orchard, it’s ok! Just make a fun Apple Cider snack and call it a day! The best part is.. no apples actually needed.

Apple Cider Muddy Buddies

Ingredients

1 cup cinnamon chips
1/2 cup cream cheese frosting (not whipped)
1 tablespoon butter
5 cups of Apple Cinnamon Chex Mix
1 1/2 – 2 cups Powdered Sugar

Directions

1. Place 5 cups of Apple Cinnamon Chex mix in a large bowl and set to the side. Place powdered sugar in a large bag or bowl with lid and set to the side.

2. Melt cinnamon chips, frosting and butter in microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals for 1 minute.

3. Pour melted mixture on top of chex mix and stir until covered. Stir quickly, before the melted mixture cools.

4. Once coated, pour chex mix cereal plastic bag (or bowl) with powdered sugar and shake to coat.

Yields: 5 cups

So forget the orchard and whip up a couple of batches of these! They are so good, I could eat them all day. They were a big hit with my friends too! One of them even suggested I call them apple cider heavenly goodness. Not a bad idea except most people have a name for the powdered sugar coated chex mix snacks. Some call it muddy buddies, some call it puppy chow. What do you call it?

    I woke up early this morning and was so excited when I saw this recipe in my inbox!! I LOVE the regular muddy buddies that are made with peanut butter, but one of my daughters has a peanut allergy. She is going to be thrilled when I make this version. Thanks!

    These are so good my family just couldn’t stop eating them! All ages just kept coming back for more! The longer they are in your mouth the better they taste. That last little hot bite taste like “Red Hots” but there are no “Red Hots” used. These are so good. Delicious! Addictive!!

  3. This look yummy! I love Muddy Buddies!
