My good friend Riki was the first person to show me this recipe. I've known Riki since elementary school, so I'm not sure exactly when she first showed me, but it was at an age where we probably weren't trusted with sharp knives that would be needed for anything more difficult. So probably sometime last year... lol just kidding!
It is definitely a good girl's get together food, and I am pretty sure we first made this at a sleepover. It is super easy to make, tastes amazing, and has all the elements of a good recipe for friends to make together:
A) You get to shake everything at the end
B) No oven, no stove, just a microwave
C) You get to fight over who gets to lick the bowl vs spoon
D) There's no waiting for them to cool down like baked goods, where someone always burns their tongue, usually me
Okay that makes me sound like a special ed kid, but really sometimes simple is better, especially when you're doing nails, watching movies, and making something delicious all in the same night.
I've heard this called "Muddy Buddies," or less commonly, "Monkey Munch." The name Muddy Buddies just sounds disturbing to me... I mean seriously...
