Festive Muddy Buddies plus Christmas Cash Giveaway!

Muddy Buddies. 
Puppy Chow. 
Whatever you call these chocolate, sweet goodies, they are delicious!

Confession: this is my first time ever making Muddy Buddies. I don't know why it's taken me so long but now that I have this definitely won't be my last. I've swapped out the peanut butter for Cookie butter, because why not? And added some fall-hued M&Ms and sprinkles for a festive kick.
