Cake Batter Muddy Buddies

Be sure and join me on Facebook for the latest updates on new recipes!

I LOVE Muddy Buddies….Puppy Chow….or whatever you like to call them!  I also love fun spins on a great snack food!  If you haven’t checked out Nutella Puppy Chow be sure and do so!  It is AMAZING! Well, today I have another one for you!….I don’t know why, but I have a seriously obsession with all things “cake batter”.  Something about the flavor gets me craving it ALL THE TIME! When I saw the recipe for Cake Batter Muddy Buddies (also known as Puppy Chow) over at So Very Blessed, I had to make it IMMEDIATELY!  It is seriously so easy to whip up and has the sweet cake batter flavor that we love!

    I love regular muddy buddies so much, but we can't make them too often because we eat the whole bowl in one sitting. I also love cake batter so this seems like an amazing treat. Thanks for sharing!

    Oh my gosh- so funny! I made these too and am posting them tomorrow! They are seriously divine, huh? I ate WAY WAY too much. The cake batter flavor is so good. :) Have a good weekend!

    I saw this on Pinterest the other day and I was waiting to see you make it!! Ha Ha - I love cake batter too.

    Are those extra sprinkles added in just for the picture, or did you serve them that way?

  6. Chef in Training

    I added them in for the picture, but you could definitely add them into the recipe too. If you do, I might recommend stirring some into the almond bark so that they stick to the chex cereal better. Otherwise, they will be loosely in the mix and not really get eaten.


    Muddy Buddies? Where have I been all this time - they sound devine! Will give this a try :)

    J just made this and its delicious!! If I, correction, WHEN I make it again I'll probably do 1 1/4 cup cake mix and 1/4 cup powdered sugar. It just seemed like I had a lot of "powder" left over. Very good though.

    I'm so in trouble with all these recipes you've been posting lately! NOM :)

  17. Tracey D.

    These were delish! I used half rice and half corn chex, and used vanilla cake mix. I also mixed in some sprinkles to the sugar/cake mix to give it a little color. Great snack, thanks!

    Awesome! Finally something that doesn't contain peanuts!! More recipes like this have no idea how difficult it is having a now 17 year old with life threatening allergies to nuts. Being in the room is all it takes.. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    My husband has been leaving this page open on my laptop and begging me to make this. I gathered the ingredients while shopping today and truth be told dreaded having to bake or cook anything since it was my only day off in over a week. I took a look at the recipe and thought why not? It only took me 8 minutes start to finish to make these. They look perfect and taste great. I'll be making these I'm sure every day for a week and expected to now during holidays. Great share, my husband loves you for it.

    Wow, all of these muddy buddy recipes look delicious! And addictive :)
