Move over popcorn! There is a new snack in town!
Not really though. It’s not like you have never heard of muddy buddies aka puppy chow. But! We are talking a new flavor today.
Enter Biscoff and milk chocolate.
It’s been 2 whole months since we had muddy buddies to enjoy. It’s a traditional snack around Christmas for us. And popcorn is a go to almost everyday snack. But it was time to shake things up and make something different.
Besides, if you remember from this post, I have 8 jars (well, 5 left actually) of Biscoff cookie spread and I am trying to find ways to enjoy it. Besides via spoon right into my mouth. 🙂 Don’t judge! I know I am not alone! 🙂
You want to know why you don’t see a huge bowl in the picture? Because it’s all that was left 5 minutes after I made this. And no! It wasn’t only me. 🙂 Well, mostly but I had accomplices. My girls. Boys are not into Biscoff apparently.
But who’s complaining? We watched “Secret of the Wings” and enjoyed this snack this weekend. We had a blast! Boys were playing Hot Wheels. They are different like that. 🙂
Let me tell you right quick about this snack. Here is the deal with cookie spread: it’s tricky to use in baking. You have to know it won’t solidify or harden whatever you do. I tried adding coconut oil to it in hopes it would harden. It won’t. So i decided to add some chocolate (hello, never enough chocolate around here!) and see if I can still enjoy the Biscoff flavor. Milk chocolate in my opinion is better here than semi-sweet or dark because it won’t overpower the cookie spread. I added it to taste it, not to just say I used it.
Fun and quick treat with the popular cookie spread! Perfect for movie nights and parties.

Place the chex in the Ziploc bag with powdered sugar and shake until each piece is nicely coated.

So if you need a little jazz in your life, try this version of muddy buddies. And I will tell you right now: double the recipe. It goes fast!
