How to make cookies and cream muddy buddies

Step 1: Add the Oreos to a food processor. Grind them up into dust.

If you do not have a food processor, you can place the Oreos into a ziploc bag and use a rolling pin to crush them up.

Step 2: Get out two separate bowls and place 4 cups of rice Chex cereal into each one.

Step 5: Melt the white chocolate chips until smooth, and pour over the other bowl of Chex cereal and gently stir to combine. Add the white chocolate covered Chex to the other ziploc bag and shake to combine with the powdered sugar and crushed Oreos.

Leftover muddy buddies can be stored at room temperature in an airtight bag or container for up to a week, or in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks.
