My favorite snack to make every year for the holidays is Christmas Muddy Buddies. It’s quick and easy to make for anyone and it’s gluten free. I love how colorful it looks but most of all you can’t stop eating it. Every time I make this tasty treat and bring it to a Christmas party or bag it as gifts, the stuff is gone!
