Another month of the The Secret Recipe Club means another month of sharing. I decided to share with my family again. Smart choice because my family inhaled these Churro Muddy Buddies by Cheese Curd in Paradise. I brought them to a family birthday and they disappeared thirty minutes after the lid came off. Well, they did leave some crumbs behind.
Ashley who blogs at Cheese Curd in Paradise resides in lush Greenbay, Wisconsin. She shares weekly meal plans and recipes such as Texas Caviar -it’s a bunch of beans!, Pizza Muffins, Breakfast Pie, Strawberry Rhubarb Bread (which I really want to try!) and Jalapeño Popper Chicken Skillet (can I dive into that now!?). Just to name a few. I can spend hours scrolling through her site. I’ve actually been following her blog for quite some time so I was more than happy I got to share her site this month!
I chose these Churro Muddy Buddies because, a) she raved about them, b) she made them more than once, and c) I wanted to be evil and bring a sweet snack to my healthy family. Hehehe-they “hated” me for bringing such addictive snackage!
Churro Muddy Buddies
10 cups Chex cereal of choice (I used gluten free rice)
3 cups cinnamon chips
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
First melt the cinnamon chips in a microwave safe bowl on medium heat at 30 second intervals, stirring between intervals.
Measure the cereal in a large bowl with a lid and pour the melted cinnamon chips over the cereal. Stir carefully, coating well.
Whisk the sugars and cinnamon in a small bowl and pour half of the mixture over the coated cereal. Put the lid on the bowl and shake to coat (or transfer to a zip tight bag and shake well). Spread the mixture on a baking sheet and chill awhile in the refrigerator or shake the rest of the mixture on immediately and serve. If chilling, when clumped together, break into pieces and transfer back to bowl or bag to coat completely and serve.
