{{ birthday buddies }}

made these for my daughter’s birthday party and they were a huge hit!  hello, sugar!

i’m also a huge fan of almond flavoring so, if a recipe calls for a teaspoon of almond extract, i usually pour two.

recipe inspired by Chex™ Muddy Buddies … here’s our version:

…….

5-6 cups Rice Chex™ cereal ( Rice Chex™ have little flavor, so makes them perfect for this recipe )
1/4 cup salted butter
3 tablespoons heavy cream
1 cup ( 8-oz ) white chocolate candy melts OR pure white chocolate ( I used Ghirardelli White Melting Wafers; from 12-oz bag )
1 teaspoon pure almond extract ( i used more …  2 teaspoons)
3 tablespoons rainbow sprinkles
1 ½ cups powered sugar

…….

Pour the cereal in a large bowl; set aside.

In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the butter, cream and white chocolate. Stir constantly until mixture can be stirred smooth/melted.

Remove from heat. Stir in almond extract.

Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated.

Stir in sprinkles. ( adding the sprinkles to the coated cereal now, before adding the powered sugar allows the sprinkles to “stick” better to the mix ).

Pour cereal mixture into a food-storage plastic bag or covered container.

Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool, about 15 minutes.

Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, if it lasts that long!

…….

*Sooo good.  I used coconut oil instead of butter and added ½ teaspoon sea salt and we. can’t. stop. eating. them!
