Cake Batter Muddy Buddies

Phil and I had one of our friends son's 1st birthday party to go to today and I was asked to bring an appetizer or a munchie. So I decided to bring Cake Batter Muddy Buddies, a recipe that I saw on non other than Pinterest! This recipe fit the bill perfectly because it tasted just like birthday cake. They were soooo good. I quadrupled the recipe and when I left there was maybe a cup left. Everyone kept eating and saying "oh my gosh, who made this, its awesome!" One of our friend's Dave even went and poured milk over it and ate it like a cereal. Then everyone was trying some of it and saying it was really good that way too. It is such a good feeling when you bring something to a party and everyone really likes it.

I know this is going to be quite a shock for most people, but I have never tried puppy chow before. I do not like peanut butter. I know you say wait a minute Stephanie, your last post had a peanut butter sauce! I am only a fan of nuts if they are in a savory dish, like as a sauce, in pesto, on my Chinese food, or used in a breadcrumb mixture. I don't like nuts in desserts...or as "butters" as in peanut butter. I know I'm weird, what can I say! This recipe is made the same way as making puppy chow. It was so easy, I will definitely keep it in my files for another time. You can even switch out the type of cake mix you use to get different flavors. This one gets a thumbs up!
