Puppy Chow Cookies

These Puppy Chow Cookies (or Muddy Buddy Cookies) are a simple and delicious way to transform your favorite snack mix into a cookie!

I came up with the idea for these cookies last week…it was a moment of pure genius, I tell you.

I mean, everyone loves the snackity snack, Puppy Chow.  Or Muddy Buddies..or whatever the heck you call it in your world.

Anyhow, Puppy Chow is a total 80’s snack mix..it’s Chex cereal coated in peanut butter and chocolate and dusted with powdered sugar.

Well, I thought, why couldn’t this be a cookie?  Like whoa!

So basically I did my so-happy-I’m-a genius-dance and went along my merry way. Check out the fun video I made…


 

Anyhow, I made them, ate them and reveled in how freaking delicious they were.

Then I made the very UNgenius decision to google the idea…you know, so I could see if I was the inventor of the best cookie that ever lived.

SO yeah, I’m not.

 

Anyhow, I’m just gonna say I am, because I thought of it in my own brain.

 

Long story short…make these cookies.

False advertisement! I’m disappointed! I’m sure they are good cookies, no doubt… But they aren’t Puppy Chow cookies! Puppy Chow has Chex Cereal… These don’t! One of the best things about Puppy Chow is the crunch.

I love muddy buddies so thought for sure these would be fantastic. Butttt the Cookies were crumbly and fell apart. Getting the chocolate on the cookies and in the sugar is a nightmare! Boy I wish I could get that hour back! And the clean up yikes chocolate and powder everywhere. Chocolate on face and clothes and hair! They look literally like muddy buddies like creatures trapped under globs of mud and dust lol. Congrats if u can make these like she did. It’s not easy!

I made these today. My cookie turned out good, but when I melted everything for the coating it wasn’t at all creamy. We ended up using the coating like a frosting and then dipped the tops in the sugar, but the sugar is being absorbed into the frosting. . My hubby loves them, but im sort of disappointed…these are going to be cookies we give to a few friends for the holidays…maybe

I made this recipe for a baking day and I have received a ton of compliments on it. It making them, the chocolate covering process was really tedious and my chocolate mix didn’t seem to melt very thinly so I wasn’t getting very even coverage anyway. But I stopped about halfway through the batch and boy am I glad because I realized that this recipe also has the best peanut butter cookies I have EVER had. I love peanut butter but am always disappointed by how heavy and greasy peanut butter cookies are. This recipe was perfect, though. I literally… Read more »
