Biscoff was so huge a few years ago, but it seems like people have moved on to other new food fads. Not me though, I’m still alllll about the Biscoff. The dog rescue that I volunteer with had a big bake sale fundraiser last weekend. I love baking for their bake sales- it’s so nice to help the rescue, and it’s a great chance for me to try out some new recipes. I’m pretty sure the other volunteers would revolt if I didn’t bring my Ginger Sandwich Cookies, so those are always on my menu. I wanted to bring something more ‘snack-y’ this time too and decided to try out this twist on the classic Muddy Buddies.
It turns out that Biscoff Muddy Buddies are… seriously delicious. I was a little worried the chocolate would overwhelm the Biscoff flavor, but it was all perfectly balanced. The cereal is coated with a mixture of butter, Biscoff Spread, and milk chocolate then it is tossed with powdered sugar and some finely crushed Biscoff Cookies. To add in just a little more Biscoff goodness, I chopped some additional Biscoff Cookies and added those in too. Lots of Biscoff flavor, lots of deliciousness.
- 12 cups Chex cereal (I used the Rice variety)
- 2 cups chopped Biscoff Cookies
- 1 cup Creamy Biscoff Spread
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
- ½ cup unsalted butter
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1½ cups finely ground Biscoff Cookies
- coarse sea salt, optional
- Pour the Chex cereal and chopped Biscoff Cookies into a very large bowl and set aside.
- In a bowl set over a pot of simmering water, melt the Biscoff Spread, milk chocolate chips, and the butter. Stir occasionally until the mixture is completely smooth. Pour over the cereal and gently mix to combine. It will take several minutes of stirring to make sure that all of the cereal is evenly coated.
- In a small bowl, stir together the powdered sugar and finely ground Biscoff Cookies. Pour over the top of the chocolate coated cereal. Tightly cover the bowl with aluminum foil, then gently shake the bowl to toss the cereal and powdered sugar mixture together until the cereal is coated. Alternatively, you could put the cereal and crumb mixture in a large plastic bag and shake them that way.
- Once the cereal is coated in crumbs, pour the mixture out into a single layer on a foil or parchment lined counter. If desired, sprinkle with a bit of sea salt. Let sit on the counter for at least an hour until it is cool.
