These cookies and cream muddy buddies are crunchy chex cereal covered with white chocolate, milk chocolate, and crushed Oreo cookies. It’s such a fun twist on traditional muddy buddies.
If you have any extra Oreos (who am I kidding? You’ll probably have to buy extra Oreos just to make this 😉 ) these cookies and cream muddy buddies are the perfect way to use them. They’re delicious, kid friendly, easy to make – and did I mention delicious?
Muddy buddies might be my favorite snacky treat. They’re so delicious, and highly addictive. I love muddy buddies, from our cake batter muddy buddies, snickerdoodle muddy buddies, and smores muddy buddies to these amazing cookies and cream muddy buddies.
These cookies and cream muddy buddies have the great taste of Oreos and a cookies and cream candy bar. They are made with both white chocolate and chocolate, and coated in powdered sugar mixed with Oreo crumbs, to get that delicious chocolatey Oreo cookie taste in every biteful.
How to make Cookies and Cream Muddy Buddies?
To make these cookies and cream muddy buddies, you’ll need chex cereal, white chocolate chips, chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate chips, but semi sweet, or dark chocolate chips work too), Oreo cookies, and powdered sugar. That’s it, only 5 ingredients.
You’ll first separate your Chex cereal into two different large bowls. One will be for the white chocolate, one will be for the regular chocolate. But first you’ll need to crush your Oreo cookies into fine crumbs. You can use a food processor, or hammer them yourself in a ziplock bag. Once that’s done, divide the Oreo crumbs into two separate bags, and add half the powdered sugar into each bag. It helps to have this all done before you melt the chocolate so you can move quickly.
In a medium sized microwave safe bowl, melt your chocolate chips. Melt them for 30 seconds, then stir, then in 15 second increments till they are nice and creamy. Then pour the melted chocolate over the Chex in one of your bowls. Stir it all together till the cereal is evenly coated. Then pour the chocolate coated Chex cereal into one of your prepared bags, and seal the bag and shake it all up to coat the cereal with the cookie crumbs and powdered sugar. Pour the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with some parchment paper and let it sit till the chocolate is set.
Repeat with the white chocolate chips. Then mix them all together in a giant bowl add in some chopped up Oreos and enjoy one of the best treats you’ve ever eaten. You’re welcome.
This delicious cookies and cream muddy buddies is ready in only about 10 minutes, and you could probably eat the whole bowl in that time too – it really is that good. It’s a perfect crunchy, sweet, snackable treat – that you’ll keep going back for one handful after another.
These cookies and cream muddy buddies are such a quick, and delicious snack treat that everyone will love! They have the perfect crunch, the perfect chocolate and Oreo flavor, and so much yum!
