Andes Muddy Buddies

Andes Muddy Buddies are a mint chocolate snack that is easy to make and tastes delicious.

I’m sorry that I have not posted anything in over a week, this has been a crazy week.  Not only have we been crazy busy we also had a stomach bug go through our house.  It knocked me out for a couple days and I didn’t feel like doing anything.
I had so many great chocolate mint treats for St. Patrick’s Day that I had planned to share this week, so I will now be sharing that in the upcoming week.  If you have ever read my blog before, you know that I love muddy buddies.  Muddy buddies are so easy to make, they only take about five minutes.  Also they taste so delicious, they are one of my favorite snacks.
One of my favorite chocolate mint candies, is Andes.  I always like when restaurants give them out after dinner.  I decided to melt the Andes and use that as the chocolate to coat the cereal for the muddy buddies. I   also used green sprinkles on the muddy buddies to make it festive for St. Patrick’s Day.
These Andes Muddy Buddies or Puppy Chow tastes so good and it has a great chocolate mint flavor.  These taste just like Andes but with the great crunchiness of the Chex cereal and the sweetness of the powdered sugar coating.  These would be great for St. Patrick’s Day or for any party.  I hope that you enjoy this great and easy snack!
Andes Muddy Buddies

Andes Muddy Buddies


  • 5 cups rice Chex cereal
  • 2 boxes Andes Creme de Menthe Thins (4.67 ounces each), melted
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 teaspoons green sprinkles (optional)


  1. Add the powdered sugar and green sprinkles to a plastic bag and mix together.
  2. Put the Chex cereal in a large bowl.
  3. Melt the Andes in the microwave for 1 minute and stir until smooth. If not melted, microwave for additional 15 second increments until melted and smooth.
  4. Pour the melted Andes over the Chex cereal and mix until the cereal is coated. Act quick because the Andes dries fast. Add the cereal to the plastic bag with the powdered sugar mixture and shake until the cereal is completely covered.
