Ok-we just wanna start this by saying please don’t judge these sweet little fellas by their appearance. They aren’t the prettiest, but we promise what they lack in looks, they make up for in taste! These things will put your taste buds on an express train to flavor town 🙂 But really, these little candies are super easy and super tasty. The easiness of the this recipe makes it a perfect addition to your holiday recipe box arsenal.
Ugly Buddies (makes ~ 2 dozen)
1 12oz bag of white chocolate chips
1/2 C creamy peanut butter (we prefer Jif)
2 C rice crispy cereal
1 1/4 C pretzels, broken into small pieces
1 1/2 C mini marshmallows
3/4 C M&Ms
In a large pot, melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter on low heat on the stove. Once fully melted, turn off the heat and add your rice crispies, marshmallows, and pretzels. Stir to combine and make sure all of the add ins are full coated in the yummy chocolate peanut butter mixture.
Finally, stir in your M&Ms. Drop by spoonful onto parchment paper. Let sit for about an hour or until fully set and hard. For faster setting candy, put it in the fridge for about 15 min or until totally set.
If you’re like us (and all of our family and friends that so graciously taste test our recipes), you’ll be hooked on this candy after one bite! 🙂 Happy Holiday Baking!
This one is for the underdogs,
