Halloween Muddy Buddies to Make & Share

Halloween Muddy Buddies are a tasty addition to Halloween party buffets. They can also be bagged up and shared with friends and family. Or, alternatively, they're equally good by the handful standing at the counter with a large spoon. Not that anyone here was caught doing that...👻
