coconut muddy buddies

recently muddy buddies came back into my life
and i remembered that they are the best ever! 
but, i decided to try to health them up just a 
little bit by switching out the butter for coconut
oil, and not only is this version healthier, they 
actually taste better with that hint of coconut 
now! sprinkle a few flakes of coconut in too..
it's a game changer for sure. here you go!
make them for the 4th of july this weekend, you
could throw in some red white & blue m&m's!
1 box rice chex cereal
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1.5 cups powdered sugar
sprinkles of coconut {optional}

pour the cereal into a giant bowl and set aside.
in a separate microwavable mixing bowl, combine 
coconut oil, chocolate chips, and peanut butter. 
melt together in the microwave 30 seconds at 
a time, stopping in between to stir until mixture 
is fully combined. add in the vanilla extract and stir.
pour hot mixture over chex cereal, coating all over.
carefully pour into a large gallon-sized ziploc bag, 
and add powdered sugar gradually as you mix it 
around to coat cereal. chex mix should be dusted 
white over the chocolate. seal ziploc and mix carefully 
until coated, then pour into bowl and enjoy. 
don't eat them too fast! :)
