Chex Sundae Cups

When I saw the Chex Sundae Cups that Jocelyn dreamed up over the summer, I thought they were an adorable (and Pinterest-worthy) idea for serving ice cream. I mean, a crunchy-sweet bowl you can eat? Obviously, she made this recipe just for me.

Enter the limited-time-only Chex Mix Muddy Buddies holiday flavors. My mind immediately went back to those edible sundae cups. Inspired by classic Christmas treats, Peppermint Bark and Snickerdoodle Muddy Buddies add a seasonal flavor to these easy dessert cup ideas:

  • Make Jocelyn’s Chex Sundae Cups recipe, subbing in Muddy Buddies for regular Chex cereal, and fill with complementary ice cream flavors. Think mint chip sundaes with chocolate sauce inside Peppermint Bark bowls, and classic vanilla ice cream with a little caramel sauce for Snickerdoodle bowls. 
  • Use a mini muffin tin to make Muddy Buddies bowls for bite-sized desserts. How amazing would the chocolate filling from these French Silk Mini Crescent Pies taste inside a peppermint bark cup? And the easy cheesecake filling from these Cheesecake Cookie Cups would be an awesome match for the snickerdoodle flavor. 
  • Fill with Greek yogurt for a lighter dessert or indulgent breakfast. Try Yoplait’s Café Mocha Greek yogurt in a peppermint bark bowl for a coffeehouse-inspired twist. Or try the creamy caramel flavor with a snickerdoodle bowl for another sweet combo.
