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 🙂

  1. So I’m not sure if we’re on speaking terms anymore since Reese’s aren’t your fave. 🙂
    Meh, I’ll forgive you. Be yourself! Especially if it means making this!

  2. Gasp!!! You didn’t just say Reese’s were not your favorite. (shakes head) That’s ok. I still love ya! Almond Joys and Mounds are actually some of my absolute favorites too! Love that you added it to a muddy buddy mix!

  3. Oh my goodness, what a delight these would be. I am a coconut fan myself and would much rather eat an Almond Joy or Mounds over a PB cup. I have one small question though, how in the world do you manage to chop up a whole cup of Almond Joys for this recipe? I would have to get twice the amount of AJ just to have some for the Mud Buddies. I will have to give this a try.
