Key Ingredients You’ll Need
Cookie Butter: This will be combined with white chocolate chips and shortening/butter to coat the cereal.
Chex Cereal: I prefer using rice Chex for this recipe. Look below to see other options to use for this recipe.
Powdered Icing Sugar: To add sweetness to this recipe, you will shake the coated cereal in this sugar.
How To Make Cookie Butter Muddy Buddies
Step 1. Use parchment paper to line a cookie sheet or grease with non-stick spray. In a medium-sized heat-safe bowl, add in the cookie butter, white chocolate chips, and butter to melt in the microwave for 35 seconds. Mix and continue to heat until melted, if needed. You could also just add in the butter if the mixture is too firm. Put in the cereal and mix until fully coated.
Step 2. In a large Ziplock bag, add the icing sugar and the prepared Chex cereal. Seal the bag shut and shake vigorously to coat completely. Pour the Chex onto the baking sheet and allow it to dry for 1 hour before eating or storing.
Best Cereal To Use For Cookie Butter Muddy Buddies?
I like to use regular Rice Chex for this recipe because it has a better texture in my opinion. However, you can feel free to try corn Chex or wheat Chex for this recipe. You could also make a blend of all three kinds of Chex.

Tips & Tricks
You can try using cinnamon chips instead of white chocolate chips to add more of a warm spice flavor to this recipe. It would make them perfect for this upcoming Fall weather!
If you don’t have a microwave or want another option for melting the chocolate, you can use a double boiler or instant pot! Melt on low heat, stirring often until smooth.
To store, place in an airtight container or Ziplock bag and store on the counter at room temperature.
