Matcha Muddy Buddies 5

There’s just something about spices and toasty apple flavors that make us so giddy about fall. Maybe it’s that warm fuzzy feeling that you get when drinking a hot cup of something spiced, or maybe it’s just the fact that warm apple pie sounds so good when it’s chilly out. No matter what the reason, we’re sure that this Matcha Apple Spice Muddy Buddy recipe will have you thinking colored leaves and cold weather. Here’s a fun twist on our childhood favorite- muddy buddies! Though normally made with peanut butter, we changed it up and used an apple spice white chocolate on the inside, and a Matcha powdered sugar on the outside. First Matcha and peppermint, and now Matcha and apple spice? Matcha, you really do taste good with anything. 

 

Ingredients:

  • 7-8 cups Chex cereal
  • 7-8 oz white chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp apple pie spice
  • 4 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1.5 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tsp Aiya Cooking Grade Matcha
  • 2 large Ziploc bags

 

Directions:

  1. Sift 1.5 cups powdered sugar and 2-3 tsp Matcha into a large bowl. Mix until the entire powdered sugar mixture takes on a light green color. Set aside.
  2. Pour the Chex cereal into 2 large Ziploc bags and set aside.
  3. Place the white chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and set aside.
  4. In a small pot, heat the heavy cream on low until simmering.
  5. Once the heavy cream is simmering, take off heat and immediately pour over the white chocolate chips. Stir until incorporated. If the chocolate mixture is not melted, place in the microwave and heat in 15 second intervals until melted, stirring in between.
  6. Stir in 2 tsp apple pie spice into the chocolate until combined.
  7. Once the white chocolate is mixed, pour into the Ziploc bags with Chex cereal. Roll the bag around, making sure the Chex are evenly coated.
  8. Pour the powdered sugar mixture into the Ziploc bag and close, making sure to leave some air inside. Shake the bag until evenly coated.
  9. Lay the muddy buddies out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, and allow it to sit for about 15 minutes.
  10. Enjoy!
