I did a guest post over at Mandy’s Recipe Box a few weeks ago. I had to share some muddy buddies over there. I have quite a few different variations, and my obsession is no secret. Even when I am trying to watch what I eat, I had to try a ‘skinny’ version so that I could still get my fix. Every time I try a different spin on Muddy Buddies, I think that they are the best that I have made.

Cookies n cream muddy buddies mixed in with oreos.
But this cookies and cream version of them… wow! They were a huge hit! The tiny crushed oreos to coat the outside of the chocolate made them taste amazing! These are an easy and fun snack that the whole family will love. And if you haven’t tried muddy buddies before, then join me in my addiction! I might even be eating some as I am typing this. hehe  Look at them. They are just screaming out, ‘Eat me!’
