It’s only June and I’ve already got to the point where I no longer want to turn my oven on. But my sweet tooth hasn’t gotten any smaller. So what’s a girl to do but turn to her arsenal of no-bake sweets, like these delicious Cookies and Cream Muddy Buddies! I mean, muddy buddies are already awesome on their own. But add a little oreo goodness to the mix and you’ve struck muddy buddy gold!
I seriously have to watch myself when it comes to muddy buddies. One second I just started eating a tiny handful, and the next second the bowl is gone before my husband even has a chance. (When this happens I just destroy all evidence. What he doesn’t know doesn’t hurt him 😉 )
Cookies and Cream Muddy Buddies make the perfect treat for your snacking kiddos, and anyone else who’s bound to be playing at your house during summer break! Do yourself a favor and just double the batch from the get-go.
- 6 cups Chex cereal
- 6 oz milk chocolate chips (about 1 cup)
- 6 oz white chocolate chips (about 1 cup)
- 10 oreos
- 1 cup powdered sugar , divided
Divide Chex cereal into two large bowls (3 cups in each bowl).
Crush Oreos into fine crumbs using a food processor or by putting them in a ziplock bag and crushing them with a rolling pin. Divide the Oreo crumbs evenly into two separate ziplock bags (about 1/2 cup in each bag). Add 1/2 cup of powdered sugar to each bag. Set aside.
Melt the milk chocolate chips-- I like to use a double boiler, but you can also melt them in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Pour the melted chocolate into one of the bowls of Chex cereal and stir gently until the cereal is evenly coated in chocolate.
Melt the white chocolate chips. Pour the melted white chocolate into the other bowl with Chex cereal and stir gently until the cereal is evenly coated in white chocolate.
Add the milk chocolate Chex to one of the gallon ziplock bags, and the add the white chocolate Chex to the other gallon ziplock bag and shake the bags well to evenly coat the cereal with powdered sugar. Pour both bags together into one large bowl. And if you've got any extra Oreos in your package, chop some up and add them to the mix!
