25 Days of Treats: Chex Muddy Buddies

I do not have a huge sweet tooth, so that is how I am able to have all these treats around without eating them! I do have a weakness for a few things, one of them being: Chex muddy buddies. I never make them for this reason, but when you have no eggs, the choices for treat making are a little limited. I have a feeling these will not make it into the neighbor/friend gifts. (Though, I looked it up, and they are freezable! Someone even said they taste great frozen).
