In a medium saucepan over low heat melt the peanut butter and 1 cup of the chocolate chips, reserving the other 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to stir into the muddy buddies at the end. Use a rubber spatula to stir the chocolate and peanut butter together until completely melted and smooth.
Place the chex, 4 cups of the golden grahams, and 1 cup of the mini marshmallows into a gallon zip lock bag. Pour the chocolate, peanut butter mixture over the cereal.
Seal the bag and shake the cereal and chocolate together to evenly coat all of the cereal.
Add the powdered sugar and seal the bag, trying to keep a lot of air in it. Shake the bag around to evenly coat the cereal and marshmallows in powdered sugar.
Last, stir in the remaining 1 cup of golden grahams, 1 cup mini marshmallows, and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Devour! Keep in a sealed plastic bag for up to 2 weeks.
