Sixlets® Baby Shower Muddy Buddies

Sixlets® Baby Shower Muddy Buddies

by Nicholas Helmick

Muddy Buddies (a.k.a Puppy Chow) are a classic party snack, and with the addition of colorful Sixlets® they become a baby shower hit! You can throw this recipe together super quickly, perfect for last-minute party favors. We made a batch of blue and pink in about 15 minutes. Creamy peanut butter, crunchy cereal and chocolatey candy - what's not to love?


Pink or blue? Our chocolatey Sixlets® are a delicious addition to the traditional muddy buddy ensemble. The chocolatey flavor adds a rich element to the snack, while the vibrant colors make it pop and turn regular muddy buddies into a baby shower treat. In this recipe we used Shimmer™ powder blue Sixlets® and Shimmer™ bright pink Sixlets®. If those aren't your ideal colors we have other shades of blues and pinks to choose from, so find the one that matches your theme perfectly!
