More About This Recipe
Your favorite Muddy Buddies (or Puppy Chow) snack is now your favorite ice cream!
Who loves Muddy Buddies? (Or if you’re from my neck of the woods…who loves “Puppy Chow”?!?)
Whatever you call it, I have been obsessed with the stuff lately. Maybe it’s because my family always used to make a batch each summer at the lake. Or maybe it’s because I can never resist a good chocolatey-peanut-butter dessert. Or maybe it’s just because I just love it!!!
Either way, I prefer eating Muddy Buddies frozen. So when I happened to glance at the bag of deliciousness sitting next to some chocolate frozen yogurt in the freezer, the lightbulb suddenly went off. Muddy buddies ICE CREAM!
Pretty sure I had to make this one immediately. I was a little worried that the cereal might get a little soggy in the ice cream. But if you mix it in already frozen, you’re good to go! These little guys made for the most crazy-delicious bites of goodness mixed into the frozen yogurt. I used chocolate, but you can use whatever flavor or type of ice cream or frozen yogurtyou’d like.
I just highly recommend that you try this one. Pronto!
First, start out by making a batch of Muddy Buddies with the original recipe from Chex! (But see my notes below for an easy shortcut if you're short on time!)
Then mix together a few cups of the Muddy Buddies with your favorite (softened) ice cream or frozen yogurt. Gently stir together until combined. Then re-freeze for another 15-30 minutes.
Scoop it out and top with some extra Muddy Buddies. Because when it comes to chocolate, the more the merrier, right?
You've just gotta mix up a batch of those Muddy Buddies, because it makes one mega amount for snacking and slipping into this ice cream recipe.
BUT, if you're way out of time and still want this ice cream treat, just run on down to the store and buy yourself a bag of Muddy Buddies snack mix! YES! They actually have them already made!
So, NOW how easy did this recipe get? NO EXCUSES. Go. Do. It.
