 Muddy Buddies (or Puppy Chow) are one of my favourite little treats.  There is just something about the satisfying crunch paired with the chocolate and peanut butter.  These Easter Muddy Buddies take the classic a bit further with pretty pastel colours and candy coated milk chocolate eggs throughout.  Absolutely delicious for a snack or dessert and perfectly seasonal.

After reading all the reviews, noticed only one person made this so I decided to try it. So glad I did!! It's easy and very pretty when put together. Adding it to my grandkids Easter basket!! Thank you for the recipe. (added dry roasted peanuts to the peanut butter mixture only because I had them and decided to do it. But great recipe as it is written!!) Thank you again!
