Christmas is a great time of year to make sweet treats for family, friends, and neighbors. A very simple and popular treat at Christmas time is muddy buddies. Have you made these easy treats before? They’d also be great for Valentine’s Day gifts.
I LOVE muddy buddies. Sometimes they are also called puppy chow. This muddy buddy recipe has a bit of twist. You add a brownie mix to this recipe for a fun and tasty muddy buddy recipe!
