Cookie Butter Snack Mix

Puppy chow? Muddy buddies? You know what I’m talking about, right? We always called it puppy chow when I was a kid. But please don’t feed this to your dog. Too much chocolate!

My assigned blogger for this month’s Secret Recipe Club called it Muddy Buddies. But I felt like I needed to stick to my roots.

My blogger this month was Nicole, who blogs at I Am a Honey Bee. She is a lifestyle blogger who shares lots of recipes, for delicious things I want to make like Homemade Cheez-Its, Coca-Cola Carnitas, and Crockpot Cool Ranch Chicken. She is married and has a young daughter named Autumn, and they recently moved to Florida. I looooove all her Mexican-inspired recipes, and I will definitely be trying out some this summer (when I have to cook. About three weeks, people!).

For now, though, I decided to make this snack mix with half a jar of cookie butter I’ve had sitting around awhile. What’s up with that? I think I had hid it from myself because I kept eating apples with about half a cup of cookie butter for dipping … So I unearthed it from the cupboard and used the recipe to make this delicious snack! (Cookie butter is also called Biscoff, from the kind of cookies used to make it.)

Confession: I went to a discount store to shop, because it was near where I was the other day. And they didn’t have any kind of Chex, so I used plain Cheerios. I think the Chex shape soaks up the coating a little better, but any unsweetened cereal should work if you’re in a pinch!

Cookie Butter Puppy Chow


  • 8 to 9 c. plain Cheerios or Chex cereal
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 1 c. cookie butter
  • 3/4 c. semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 c. powdered sugar


Place cereal in a large bowl and set aside.

In a saucepan over medium heat, melt together butter, cookie butter, chocolate chips, and vanilla until smooth. Pour over cereal and toss until all is coated.

Let cereal cool for 10 minutes, then add powdered sugar to the bowl and toss well.

    • Yes, I think you can get it in the regular grocery now! My jar came from ALDI. It’s sometimes Biscoff, sometimes cookie butter, sometimes Speculoos cookie butter. I know Trader Joe’s carries it. Should be with the nut butters, too.

  1. There are reasons I don’t allow myself to buy cookie butter or nutella…mostly that I would just eat it with a spoon. This looks delicious and I haven’t had muddy buddies in at least 20 years. Wonderful SRC post!

  2. OMG – what a brilliant use of cookie butter! Also – I don’t normally have to click through all the recipe links in these posts, but the three you picked sounded awesome! So good job there, too, you got me to click!

  3. OMG! Stop tempting me! Puppy Chow is dangerous! I made it for one of my SRC recipes and had to do what you did – hide it from myself. Cookie butter sounds like an excellent addition to basic chow – I’d never be able to pass it up.
