There aren’t many flavor combinations that compare to chocolate and peanut butter.  I think that is the reason why Muddy Buddies are so darn popular.  For years I have enjoyed making {and of course eating} them because they are so easy to make.  It is a no-bake treat that will knock your socks off.  So…I decided to take my unhealthy {but delicious} obsession of cookies and transform it.  What a wonderful decision!!  Muddy Buddy Cookies are beyond fabulous and you won’t be able to get enough.

Start by melting the peanut butter and chocolate chips in the microwave.  I started with one minute, stirred the mixture and then added 25 second increments until the mixture was melted and smooth.

Because we aren’t making individual Muddy Buddies, you will want to lightly crush about 1/4 of the Chex cereal.

Pour the chocolate and peanut butter mixture over the cereal.

Mix until all of the cereal is completely coated.

Using a large cookie scoop {about 2 tablespoons}, spoon large mounds of the cereal mixture onto a wax paper or parchment lined baking sheet.  Refrigerate them for about 10 minutes or until the chocolate mixture is set up.

Once set up, place each cookie into a large Ziploc bag with powdered sugar.  Shake or roll the cookie to cover the entire surface area.

Look at these mounds of chocolate and peanut butter GOODNESS!

I am telling you, these sweet babies are beyond fabulous.  All of the wonderful flavors and textures of the original but in a cookie form that can’t be beat.  Once you make them this way you will be hooked and Muddy Buddy Cookies will be the new “original”.
