Muddy Buddies

The combination of chocolate and peanut butter makes this is a favorite in our home. My youngest eater (17-months) gobbles it up, as does my oldest eater, the husband. This homemade version tastes way better than what I remember the non-vegan store-bought version tasting!

We call them "muddy buddies", but I have heard them also called "puppy chow" or "monkey munch".

Vegan Muddy Buddies
