Valentine's Day Muddy Buddies Recipe

Author Jenn Quillen


  • 1/2 bag pink Wilton Candy Melts
  • ¼ teaspoon shortening like Crisco
  • 6 cups Chex Rice Cereal
  • 3 cups confectioner sugar more or less depending on your desired result
  • Various pink and red sprinkles


  1. Put your Wilton candy melts into a microwave safe bows.
  2. Heat for 45 seconds, then stir, put back into the microwave and heat an additional 30 seconds, then stir. If your candy melts aren’t completely melted after stirring, repeat at 20 second intervals until the candy is completely melted.
  3. Add ¼ teaspoon shortening and stir – this helps liquefy the candy melts and makes it easier to coat the rice cereal without getting too thick and bumpy.
  4. In a gallon sized Ziploc bag, pour Chex Rice Cereal and the melted candy melts.
  5. Gently shake the bag, rolling slowly, to completely coat the Rice Cereal with the melted candy melts. Pour in the powdered sugar and shake until the cereal mixture is completely coated.
