That’s right! Rainbow Chip frosting and irresistible Muddy Buddies are in it to win it with this genius recipe.

Get ready, people. This snack is what dreams are made of! Two fan favorites—Betty Crocker Rainbow Chip frosting and Chex Muddy Buddies—collide to make a completely irresistible treat that’s ready in just 10 minutes. It’s a good thing this recipe makes such a big batch because it’s a real crowd pleaser—a bowl of this won’t last long at your next party!

You only need six ingredients to make this recipe: Rice Chex cereal, white vanilla baking chips, Betty Crocker Rainbow Chip frosting, butter, powdered sugar and Betty Crocker Candy Shop Rainbow Chips.


First, in a microwavable bowl, melt the white vanilla baking chips and butter in 1-minute intervals, stirring after each, until chips are completely melted and the mixture is smooth. In another bowl, microwave the frosting uncovered for about 30 seconds, then stir the frosting into the melted white chips mixture.


Next, pour the cereal into a large bowl and drizzle the Rainbow Chip mixture over the top. Stir everything together until the cereal is evenly coated.


Pour the powdered sugar and candy rainbow chips into a large zip-top plastic bag.


Add the coated cereal to bag and seal it tight.


Add the coated cereal to bag and seal it tight.


Give the whole bag a good shake until the cereal is well-coated with the powdered sugar. Enjoy immediately! If you can manage to save some for later, you can store this mix in an airtight container for up to one week at room temperature.
