What are cookies and cream muddy buddies?
You can argue about whether this classic Chex confection is most commonly called muddy buddies or puppy chow. Whatever you choose to call it, these cookies and cream muddy buddies/puppy chow are downright delicious. Muddy buddies are a salty-sweet, no bake snack mix traditionally made with peanut butter, chocolate, powdered sugar and Chex cereal. But we took some liberties.
We added in a few extra ingredients to turn this into COOKIES AND CREAM puppy chow AKA the tastiest, quickest, most addicting treat you’ll ever have.
What do you need to make cookies and cream muddy buddies?
The beautiful thing about this fun muddy buddies flavor is that you’ll only need 7 ingredients to make this scrumptious salty-sweet snack. It’s a fun twist on traditional muddy buddies with all the flavors of an oreo cookie. Here’s your grocery list:
Chex Cereal: I usually use the rice Chex cereal, but any of the plain, unsweetened flavors will work just as well!
Oreo Cookies: I highly recommend getting name brand Oreos if you can (I personally think they are the best chocolate sandwich cookie out there), but if you can’t find Oreos you can always use another store bough chocolate sandwich cookie to get the same cookies and cream flavor!
Salt: Don’t sleep on the salt! The salt might just be the most important ingredient in these muddy buddies. It will cut the sweetness and deepen the flavor profile.
White Chocolate Chips: You’ll coat half of the Chex cereal in white chocolate for the cream in cookies and cream.
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips: And you’ll coat the other half in chocolate for the cookie party 🙂
Powdered Sugar: A little powdered sugar gives your muddy buddies a sweet finish!
