Lucky Buddies

Is anyone here as in love with muddy buddy's like we are over here?! They are trouble because they are soooo addicting! For St. Patricks Day my mom always cooks a traditional St. Patricks feast for the family. Since we are half Irish of course! My assignment always is dessert so I try to come up with something different each year and these muddy buddys hit the jack pot! (or pot of gold you could say) 
Hope you enjoy them as much as we will!
Mine always tend to look a little chunkier and balled up because I MAY use a little more chocolate than recommended :)
Recipe on the following page 

6 cups Rice Chex® cereal
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
3.5 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup green candy-coated chocolate candies
1/4 cup Lucky Charms Marshmallows 

Place cereal in a medium sized bowl and set aside.
In a small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High for one minute and then stir until melted and smooth.
Pour peanut butter mixture over cereal and stir until evenly coated.
Place half of the cereal mixture in a seal-able food storage bag  and add the powdered sugar.
Shake the bag until well coated then spread the cereal out on a baking sheet and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
Stir in green food coloring into the other half until you achieve an even bright green colour. ( I was out of food color so we used green frosting!) Spread the cereal out onto another baking sheet and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
In a serving bowl, mix both cereal mixtures along with the chocolate and marshmallows.
Cover for storage!
