Birthday Cake Muddy Buddies

Meet my new current obsession . . . Muddy Buddies.  Can you believe that I had never had Muddy Buddies until my friend, Shanelle, brought these into work one day?  Sure, I have seen Muddy Buddy recipes all over the place, but they didn't sound that amazing to me.  Boy, was I so wrong.  I have been missing out - BIG TIME. 

I seriously LOVE these Birthday Cake Muddy Buddies.  The flavor, the texture, the pretty sprinkles and everything.  White chocolate covered cereal and marshmallows that are coated in a combination of powdered sugar and cake mix and finished off with some rainbow sprinkles . . . BEST TREAT EVER :)  The addition of marshmallows is genius and when the soft and chewy marshmallows are mixed with the crunchy cereal and creamy white chocolate, it is sooooo addicting.    
I could not stop eating this incredible treat.  It makes a really big batch, so if you are making this, you might want to plan on sharing with a lot of people, because you will want to eat the entire bowl.    

What is your favorite flavor combination of Muddy Buddies?  I am dying to try out more versions.

(Printable Recipe)

1 (12 oz.) box Rice Chex cereal (12 cups)
2 (12 oz.) bags white chocolate chips
1 Tbl. shortening or coconut oil
1/2 (10 oz.) bag mini marshmallows, or more if desired
1/4 c. rainbow sprinkles
1 c. powdered sugar
1 c. dry funfetti cake mix

Add cereal and marshmallows to a very large bowl; set aside.  Pour the white chocolate chips and shortening into a medium, microwave-safe, bowl and microwave until melted, stirring every 30 seconds.  Stir until smooth and creamy.  Immediately pour over cereal/marshmallow mixture and stir together until all the cereal is evenly coated in white chocolate.  Stir in the rainbow sprinkles.  

Combine powdered sugar and cake mix and gradually add to cereal mixture while the white chocolate is still wet.  Stir together until all the cereal and marshmallows are evenly coated in sugar.  You may or may not use all of the powdered sugar mixture.  Add enough until the cereal is coated to your preference.  Allow white chocolate to set and serve.
