Puppy Chow. Muddy Buddies. Sweet Minglers. Whatever you call it, you know it’s delicious… That crunchy, sweet, and salty mixture leaving your hands covered in a chocolatey powdered sugar mess always brings me back to my childhood.

To this day, it’s one of my go-to snacks. Lately, all sorts of variations have been popping up online, so I’ve compiled 9 of my favorite renditions of this beloved snack.
