Chex Mix Muddy Buddies Rock

Seriously, I bought a bag on Monday and can’t stop eating them. I tried to space out the bag over the week and ended up finishing them last night unintentionally while watching . They should definitely sell these things at movie theaters in smaller bags.  I mean powdered sugar, peanut butter, and melted chocolate mixed together with crunchy chex is tha bomb. So go get some at your local supermarket.

…Or make your own!

I’ve provided the recipe from General Mills site below if you wanna challenge yourself. I’ve heard they’re even better homemade.

In honor of Halloween (which just so happens to fall 2 days after my birthday) this week’s Interesting Recipes from Across the Interweb is featuring some scary desserts/treats… Along with a dal recipe recipe my good friend Ali Z wanted me to post. She is currently living in Bangladesh, doing volunteer teaching at a women’s university there, and learning the in’s and outs of the culture & cuisine. Her recipe isn’t really a dessert, so it doesn’t fully fit the theme…  But it is kind of scary, since it’s something she learned how to make while she’s been living over there… Or I guess “intimidating” might be the better word.

Either way, here’s the recipes:
