Almond Joy Muddy Buddies

Almond Joy Muddy Buddies |

Sometimes I feel like such a rebel, because…. Reese’s Cups are not my favorite candy bar. *gasp*

I know. The horrors, right?! I mean, I like ’em okay. It’s not like I’d go so far as to say no to eating one of them or anything. But truthfully, I’d rather have a Kit Kat in one hand and an Almond Joy in the other (an some fun size Crunch bars in there somewhere too…)! I think Almond Joys are my very favorite. I just love their texture– crunchy, creamy, chewy, yum, yum, yum!

This Almond Joy Muddy Buddy recipe has all that same goodness to it: the fun textures, the great taste, and plenty of chocolate! It’s so simple to whip up in no time at all and no-bake to boot! I hope you enjoy this snack mix as much as I did :)
