Punkin Nightshade
Hey there, y'all!  This is Petronella Nightshade, what am Punkin, and I am bringin you another Easy-Bake Coven recipe for The MonsterGrrls' Thir13en For Halloween.  Most folks like to do things with their younguns on Halloween and build them up some good memories of happy times, which is a right smart to do, specially round a holiday time.  This here is called Swamp Mud Munchies, but it don't use no actual swamp mud, and it's real easy to make.  If you got one of them microwave ovens, why you can make this in no time at all, and it is especial good to do with little bitty ones as a first-
time cookin recipe.

What's In It:
9 cups of Corn Chex, Rice Chex, Wheat Chex or Chocolate Chex cereal (or a combination of em.  This here is that little biscuit cereal what folks use to make party mix and such, but this is a sweet recipe.)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
Swamp Mud Munchies (also known as Muddy Buddies to humans)
1/4 cup butter or margarine(I like butter best, and usin about half a stick here)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
What You Got To Do:
There is not nothin at all to this.  Measure out all that cereal in a big old bowl, and hold it aside.
Get you a bowl you can use in the microwave gadget, what'll hold about a quart.  Put all your chocolate chips, your peanut butter and your butter or margarine in it and melt all that up in the microwave on High for about a minute.  Do about 30 more seconds or until you can stir it up smooth.  (Don't get no water in the chocolate or it'll seize up.)  
Stir in the vanilla and pour it over the cereal, and stir it all up good to coat the cereal evenly with the chocolate mixture.  Get a resealable 2-gallon plastic bag and put your mixed-up cereal and stuff in it, then pour in the powdered sugar, seal up the bag and shake it good to coat it all up.  Spread it out on some waxed paper to cool it off and then store it for eatin in an airtight container.  
And that is it.  Like I said, ain't nothin to it.  If you uncommon like peanuts you can use peanut butter chips instead of chocolate, and use cashew or almond butter if you like em better, or if you are one of them folks who's allergic to peanuts.  There is all kind of ways to do this.

Be sure you come back soon for the rest of The MonsterGrrls' Thir13en For Halloween, cause we's almost there!  Blessings be on you!
