Oreo Hazelnut Muddy Buddies Mix

I had bought a few boxes of Chex with the intention of making Muddy Buddies again but didn't realize I was missing most of the ingredients I needed.  I started looking around the pantry and decided to make an Oreo Hazelnut version instead.

These taste so good and I kept thinking that with a sprinkling of crushed Oreo cookies in place of the powdered sugar they would make a really great Halloween snack too!  




Ingredients:
10 cups Chex (I used 5 cups rice and 5 cups corn)
1 cup Wilton candy melts-- we happened to have black ones on hand so that's what I used
1/2 cup Oreo/Hazelnut spread
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup - 1 cup powdered sugar

In a large bowl I measured out equal amount of rice Chex and corn Chex then set the bowl aside. 

I measured out the candy melts and Oreo/hazelnut spread then combined them in a small bowl with butter microwaveing it in 30 second increments until it was fully melted. 




Once fully melted, I added the vanilla extract and then poured it over the cereal mixture.  Working gently until the cereal is evenly coated.


I then sprinkled the powdered sugar on top and made sure to mix it in well; it clings nicely to the warm melted spread. 

I laid out the entire mixture in a single layer on tin foil until the chocolate had hardened back up.  We could smell the Oreos! 




It was so good with that nice combination of crunchy, salty, and sweet!

  1. Oh, I love this stuff so much. Have never tried this version but used to make 'puppy chow' for my students out of Chex mix and melted chocolate chips and powdered sugar. I could eat my weight in this stuff. So. Good!!!

  8. Oreo hazelnut spread?!?! Man oh man, between that and mint Kit Kats, my diet is eff'd! These sound great though. Muddy buddies are another food that I've been too intimidated to try. I swear your blog is like self-help for my inner baker!
