We love anything Twix. I knew I had to make these, and wow, they were delicious and addicting. I tried to follow the recipe, Here, but there was way too much chocolate for only 4 cups of Chex, so I doubled it, and tweaked it here and there, to make the end result. Yummy stuff!
Twix Muddy Buddies
10 Cups Rice Chex Cereal
(2) 12 ounce bag milk chocolate chips
30 kraft caramel squares
2 Tablespoon Heavy Cream
12 Shortbread Cookies
1 cup powdered sugar
4 Twix Bars, chopped
5 kraft caramels (optional for final drizzle)*
In a big bowl place chex cereal. In a microwave safe dish, or over low heat on the stove, melt the milk chocolate chips. If in the microwave, melt 30 seconds at a time until smooth and be careful not to let burn and clump.
Pour the melted chocolate over the chex cereal and mix until the cereal is completely covered in the chocolate.
Melt the caramel and heavy cream. Drizzle this over the chocolate covered chex. Stir lightly getting all of the cereal pieces drizzled in caramel.
Pulse the shortbread cookies in a food processor until fine. Combine with the powdered sugar in a gallon sized bag. Divide the shortbread/powdered sugar mix between 2 gallon ziplock bags. Dump the chex cereal and shake to coat in the powdered sugar shortbread cookie crumbs. Add Twix pieces.
If you want a final caramel drizzle, lay them out on a parchment covered cookie sheet. Melt the 5 caramels and drizzle on the top of the muddy buddies.
Why do we add salt to help boil water? At constant pressure under normal conditions, once water reaches boiling point, the water will not get any hotter.
In addition to adding some flavor, adding salt RAISES the boiling temperature so that the water can actually get hotter than 100 degrees C (212F) - and will cook your spaghetti faster.
When slicing a hard boiled egg, try wetting the knife just beforecutting. If that doesn't do the trick, try applying a bit ofcooking spray to the edge. Buy mushrooms before they "open." When stems and caps are attachedsnugly, mushrooms are truly fresh.
