Candy Cane Muddy Buddies

I am lucky enough to work with the cub scouts in my church and the boys I work with LOVE treats! I try and have some sort of treat every week and I knew they would love this Candy Cane Chex Mix. It was a huge success and I am officially the coolest leader ever…. so they say… until next week when I make them do something they really don’t want to do!
