Allergy friendly muddy buddies are so delicious! Chex cereal is coated in chocolate, sunbutter, and powdered sugar to make this a deliciously addictive treat!
Well, it’s Super Bowl Sunday in just two days. That snuck up on me! Not that I have any big plans or anything…we’re not really football people. More like music nerds. :) Anyway, I thought I would share a favorite, EASY, kid-friendly snack just in case you need something to whip up for a Super Bowl party. Or even if you just want to whip it up for yourself – muddy buddies.
We love allergy friendly, gluten free muddy buddies. I have fond memories of making this snack in high school and college, and eating wayyyy more of it than I would be comfortable doing now! :) I love making this for my boys to enjoy, using sunbutter in place of peanut butter.
I know this isn’t a groundbreaking recipe or anything, but it is a family favorite, and I did want to share it with you! There are a couple of things you can do to make the original Chex recipe allergy friendly. The main thing is to use sunbutter, (or another seed butter), and the second thing is that I eliminate the butter. You could use vegan butter spread if you want, but I have never used any butter in all the years that I’ve made this, and I think it tastes great. Plus you lower the fat content if you skip the butter.

Allergy Friendly Muddy Buddies (Gluten Free, Nut Free).
Chex cereal is coated with chocolate, sunbutter, and powdered sugar for a sweet and simple treat! These gluten free muddy buddies are always a big hit!
- 9 cups corn Chex cereal or rice Chex
- 1 ¼ cups dairy free chocolate chips
- ½ cup sunbutter
- 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
Place the chocolate chips in a large microwave safe bowl and microwave for 60 seconds. Stir, then microwave for 15 second intervals until melted.
Add the sunbutter to the chocolate chips and stir until smooth.
Pour the Chex cereal into the bowl and stir until the cereal is covered.
Transfer the mixture into two large ziploc bags. Pour half of the powdered sugar into each bag, then seal the bags and shake well to coat.
Pour into a serving bowl or store in the bag.
What was your favorite childhood snack? Do you still make it today?
Thank you! Had to make a snack for my daughters class and I wanted to include all the children even with allergies! This came out fantastic!
I’m so happy to hear that!
Another great recipe! I made these for my teenage son, who I have to say smiled when he ate these. Now my husband, myself and my other son ate them too and loved them. They are soooooo yummy! They were easy to make too!
I’m so happy to hear that! Thanks for letting me know!
Thank you so much for this recipe! I used it in my classroom for our Valentine’s party.
If you can’t find sunbutter do you think tahini or sesame paste might also work? I’m based in Asia so sunbutter isn’t possible to find.
I’m so excited for peanut butter-free Puppy Chow (that’s what we call it where I’m from in NC)! Yum!
Yay! I hope you love it!

I have ZERO self-control around muddy buddies and these look downright dangerous, Kelly! I would definitely have to make a double-batch. ;)
Yum! This looks so good, and I love that it is made without peanut butter!

Muddy buddies are one of my favorite snacks! I think I could devour this entire batch. Love that you used sun butter in here!
I’m pretty sure i wouldn’t be able to stop once I started on these :)
I know, I have that problem! :)
