Maple and Toffee Autumn Muddy Buddies Recipe

Maple and Toffee Autumn Muddy Buddies Recipe, welcome Autumn and Fall with a batch of these delicious Muddy Buddies, drizzled with Buttery Maple Syrup, Cookie Butter and other goodies!
Hola Amigos! I know summer is not quite over yet, but the minute September hits, forget it! I'm in fall mood! Thinking about fall menus, Halloween decorations, which I'm already working on , hay rides, cider, doughnuts, you name it! But this year is a little different though,  my little one is going to school and I have a lot of time on my hands to create, cook and craft (you will think) well guess what? the back to school blues are hitting me pretty hard right now and I got nothing! lol...yup.. can't think of one original recipe, one ingenious craft or decorating  tip to offer, so I'm just going to sit still for a few days and munch on these guys: Muddy Buddies, Puppy Chow or Kitty Kaboodles call them what you wish, they are good! I've  never had them before, this was my first batch and won't be the last, that's for sure.


Super easy recipe! They're usually made with Chex Mix which I don't like,  I made mine with my favorite cereal ever, Quaker Oatmeal Squares and since this one here is  my fall batch I used the Golden Maple!

You won't find just regular butter on my Muddy Buddies...but how about cookie butter (aka Biscoff spread) and Maple Syrup! oh yeah, the maple syrup alone screams Fall

I needed some fall colors and what's the best way of bringing color and flavor on, that with Reese's Peanut Butter Pieces! yummm

And just in case you are not getting enough of an Autumn yet feast your taste buds on these little morsels, Butter Toffee Peanuts, Oh My!!!

Finally in addition to the powder sugar bath you give them, I finished mine with Cinnamon Sugar!

There you have it my friends, this is the way I give myself a pity party, lol! I know you've seen dozen of Muddy Buddy recipes but I'm pretty sure you haven't had one quite like this! make yourself a batch and tell me what you think! Thank You for stopping by and remember everything tastes better with a Pinch Of Love!
Maple and Toffee Autumn Muddy Buddies Recipe, Say hello to cooler temperatures with a batch of delicious Maple and Toffee goodness, not only they ooze these typical Fall flavors but they are also covered in cinnamon sugar and other goodies!

Besitos,
Lizy


Maple and Toffee Autumn Muddy Buddies
Ingredients:
2 1/2 Cups Quaker Oatmeal Squares Golden Maple
1/2 Cup Cookie Butter (Biscoff Spread)
1/4 Cup Maple Syrup ( I used butter flavored)
2 TBSP Butter
1 Cup Powdered Sugar
1 Large Zip Lock Bag
3.5 oz Reese's Pieces
4 oz Butter Toffee Peanuts
Directions:
Place your cereal in a large mixing bowl. On a separate microwave proof bowl melt in 45 sec intervals, the cookie butter, maple syrup and butter. Depending on your microwave you might have to do this just once or maybe add a couple more seconds until everything is melted. Careful, the maple syrup gets super hot fast. Mix, Pour this mix over the cereal and mix until every square is coated. I started with a rubber spatula but ended up using my clean hands. 
Put powder sugar inside a Zip Lock bag. Add the cereal and shake to coat every square with powder sugar. You could use 2 bags with powder sugar if you want more coating or if you are making a larger batch.
Once every bite is coated, place the Muddy Buddies in a cookie sheet to cool and dry a little bit. 
Sprinkle some cinnamon sugar. Place in a large serving bowl and mix in the Reese's pieces and toffee peanuts. Mix all together one last time and enjoy

Prep time 5 minutes                          Cooling time 5 minutes                    Serves 2 1/2 Cups
