Cookies & Cream Muddy Buddies

It takes 4 ingredients and they can honestly be made in under 5 minutes! I made these twice in the last two days (yeah they are that good), the second time around I did an equal ratio of powdered sugar to Oreo and it was perfect. You might play with the ingredients to fit your tastes—more Oreo, add peanut butter, etc.

I ate these while eating cookies and cream ice cream and I think I may just like these more—that is SERIOUSLY saying something! It’s crazy that they’re SO yummy and SO easy. Sometimes the simplest things are the best. Warning: the following recipe is highly addictive, prepare at your own risk.

*when I say very finely crushed I mean very finely crushed, as in nearly powder. It's the larger clumps that will tend not to stick the the coated cereal.
