Lemon Blueberry Muddy Buddies

I was provided the ingredients to make this by Chex Cereal,
however all the opinions are my own. 

My kids love the classic peanut butter and chocolate Muddy Buddies.  They practically beg me to make a batch at least once a month.  You really can’t go wrong with the classic.

When Chex Cereal emailed and asked if they could send me a surprise  box of goodies, of course I said yes!  In the box was a super cute picnic basked fill with all the ingredients to make Lemon Blueberry Muddy Buddies!

At first, my oldest was reluctant to try the new flavor.  She acted like it was a sin to eat any flavor other than the original Muddy Buddies.

After her first bite though… she proclaimed that she loved the lemon blueberry better than the original!

Now that’s a great endorsement!

What I love about these Lemon Blueberry Muddy Buddies is that you can really taste the lemon shine through!  The fresh juice and zest of the lemon are tart and the powdered sugar is sweet.

Add the crunch and blueberry flavor of the Chex and you’ve got a perfectly delicious treat! So yum and an instant family favorite!

This recipe is just as easy to make as the traditional.  The addition of the lemon takes no extra time at all and the entire recipe can be prepped in just two bowls!

Dump the cereal into one large bowl then heat the butter, vanilla chips, lemon zest & juice together until melted.  Pour the melted mixture over the cereal, cover with powdered sugar and you’re done!  Easy peasy!

I served these Lemon Blueberry Muddies to my kids topped with fresh blueberries.  The pop of the berry in your mouth gives an extra sweetness that’s to die for!

Why is your recipe different than the one on the blueberry Chex box? Perhaps if I had used your recipe instead of theirs, mine would have turned out crispy and delicious instead of overly lemony and chewy. I was so looking forward to loving these and was so disappointed. Why is your recipe different from the one on the box, which does not ask for butter and requires 2 lemons to get the amounts of zest and juice asked for? Very crappy for them to ask you for this kind endorsement but not have the recipes match. :(
