Sharing is caring!


It’s time for some more muddy buddy treats! I love these little things, probably too much! Like, they are so yummy to munch on that I eat too many most of the time. And I may or may not eat so many that my tummy aches a little bit….(Who me?!)  This is a Fall variation. It was either Apple or Pumpkin & I went with Apple this time, but don’t be surprised if you see a Pumpkin variation later on down the road. These are a great little after school snack for my kids to munch on while I cook dinner, but that’s like eating dessert before dinner, so I guess that makes me a bad mom… or a cool mom! Haha. Enjoy!
