Cookies and Cream Puppy Chow

Cookies and Cream Muddy Buddies

The Story:
Okay, I had 6 boxes of Rice Chex sitting on top of my fridge. What’s a girl to do? Make a lot of muddy buddies, right? Yes. So me and my fabulous new roommate made 4 different types of muddy buddies/ puppy chow this weekend. But I figure, the Super Bowl is coming up and everyone needs some sugary snacks next to the chips and dip.  And let’s face it, cupcakes just aren’t very manly. You can also check out my other puppy chow recipe that is just as good! Or there’s always the Oreo cupcake recipe if puppy chow isn’t really your thing.  [end-story]

    I cannot wait to try this recipe! I’ve made regular Chex Mix “Muddy Buddies”, as I know them. But this one just sounds so much more delicious 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    I just have to say… chocolate contains a chemical called Theobromine which can be deadly for dogs. Its really bad for them!

    I’m not seeing a difference between the “cookie” recipe and the “cream” recipe. You mention to mix the two together, are you just doubling the recipe and then adding the chopped oreos?

    I made the Cookies and Cream puppy chow. The family decided the second time I made it, we would just do the “cream” part for the entire recipe!! Delish!! Making this version was a BIG hit!! Just in case anyone was wondering!! Thanks

    Ive made this before… i wanted to give some to a friend but i couldn’t help devouring the whole thing! It is incredibly delicious- best muddy buddy recipe ever.

    Don’t use chips in place of the melts, unless you can find the right combination of butter/oil whatever to add to the chips. What a mess…total dissappointement. I am sure it is wonderful with the melts, but didn’t have them on hand. Chips alone didn’t work at all, added butter as if I was melting for the original puppy chow, but still didn’t work out, perhaps still needed to add more butter. Oh well. live and learn.

    Late in coming, but this recipe is basically flawless. I have tried several of the puppy chow recipes here. (the pb brownie is my favorite!) I used both white and milk chocolate chips and had NO trouble. No butter/oil combo needed. Microwave 30 second intervals stirring between, until almost melted, perfect. If I could change or add anything, it would be a little more powdered sugar. Other than that, flawless. Thanks for the recipe!
