Easy Cookies and Cream Muddy Buddies {aka Chex Mix}!

Such a fun twist on the classic muddy buddies! I could eat the whole batch on my own.

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 powdered sugar to Oreo and it was perfect.

I ate these while eating cookies and cream ice cream and I think I may just like these more, that is SERIOUSLY saying something! How could one of my easiest recipes be one of my favorite =)? Sometimes the simplest things are the best. Warning: the following recipe is highly addictive, prepare at your own risk.

Cookies and Cream Muddy Buddies

White chocolate and Oreo covered cereal for a crunchy sweet and satisfying treat. Seriously quick and easy to make. Just be warned this is addictive!

Servings: 12
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 3 minutes
Total Time 8 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 cups Corn Chex Cereal
  • 1/2 cup very finely crushed Oreos (8 original Oreos)*
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 (12 oz) bag Vanilla Candy Melts, such as Wilton

Instructions

  1. Measure 6 cups Corn Chex Cereal into a large mixing bowl, set aside. Pour crushed Oreos and powdered sugar into a large ziploc bag, seal bag and shake to combine mixture, set aside. In a microwave safe bowl, melt Vanilla candy melts in 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval until melted and smooth. 
  2. Pour melted candy melts over Corn Chex and toss mixture with a rubber spatula until evenly coated (scrapping down the sides of the bowl as stirring, don't waste any of that melted candy). 
  3. Pour or scoop coated Corn Chex into ziploc bag containing crushed Oreo mixture. Seal bag and shake until the cereal is evenly coated. Store in an airtight container up to one week (but don't kid yourself they won't be around for a week =).

Recipe Notes

*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.
