Muddy Buddy Cookies

Muddy Buddy Cookies

Muddy Buddies were always one of my favorite childhood treats. I probably made them once a month as a child because they were easy enough for a kid to make and they were such a delicious treat. Of course I still love them so I wanted to try making them into cookie form. With these you get a soft peanut butter cookie, coated with a chocolate and peanut butter coating, then its dipped in powdered sugar to replicate that same muddy buddy flavor. I considered adding in some Rice Krispie cereal or crushed Chex but wasn’t sure if they’d retain their crunch so I just opted to leave them out. They are perfect as they are.
