More About This Recipe
  • Savory Chex® Mix basically makes a party. But what if your Chex® Mix could BE the party? We’ve taken the traditional, turned it sweet and upgraded it with so many colors of the rainbow.

    Chex® Mix. Muddy Buddies®. Pretzels. Perfection. Here’s how to make this wildly easy snack at home.

    Grab a bag of Chex® Mix Muddy Buddies® (any flavor will do, but I will forever and always want to marry the original)…

    Then toss ‘em on a parchment-lined baking sheet with some butter-flavored pretzel waffles.

    You will now need every color of candy melts ever. Arrange them side-by-side in a microwave-safe dish, then microwave until melted.

    Since we’re rainbowing here, you don’t have to worry about the colors all being melted into each other. When you drizzle, it’ll all kind of magically work out.

    Speaking of drizzle… once your candy melts are melty, stir each little section gently until smooth, then drizzle on top of your Chex® mixture. Before moving on to the next color, give a little sprinkle of rainbow sprinkles and rainbow chips and rainbow candies.

    Then allow it all to cool until the candy melts firm up.

    Gently crack into pieces. Then snack your heart out.

    Life is good!
