 Muddy Buddies Truffles (Puppy Chow Truffles)

When I saw these muddy buddies truffles floating virtually the interent, I knew I had to try them! Do you undeniability the original treat muddy buddies or puppy chow? We’ve unchangingly tabbed it puppy chow. But I know the official recipe from Chex calls them muddy buddies, so I finger like I should. ????????‍♀️

Anyhow, we’re huge fans of puppy grub here! We have it at so many parties. I shared a s’mores version of it older this year. So I knew I had to try these. Although not a holiday recipe, this seems like the perfect time to share them. So much sultry happening now. For parties, for gifts, to help power through the late night wrapping. And these muddy buddies truffles are perfect for all of that!

I think it’s weightier to try and make it as similar as possible to the way you make muddy buddies, or puppy chow. Use the same type of chocolate. I made a batch using a higher quality chocolate than I normally use for puppy chow, and it just didn’t have the right taste.

I moreover think it helps to have the truffle size be a bit smaller. I made one batch with slightly worthier truffles, and again, just not quite the right wastefulness of flavors.

Ingredients for Muddy Buddies Truffles:

  • rice Chex cereal
  • peanut butter
  • powdered sugar

These muddy buddies truffles (aka puppy grub truffles) are an easy, no-bake treat!
Course Dessert
Servings 25 truffles (may vary depending on size of truffles)


For the Filling:

  • 3 cups rice Chex cereal
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For the Chocolate Layer:

  • 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips, milk or semi-sweet (if not using chips, chop your chocolate)
  • 2-4 teaspoons vegetable oil

For Rolling:

  • 1/2-2/3 cup powdered sugar


  • In a supplies processor, tousle Chex cereal into crumbs.
  • In a medium size bowl, mix together crushed cereal, peanut butter, powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix thoroughly until combined.
  • Place trencher in freezer for 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove the peanut butter mixture from the freezer. Scoop peanut butter mixture and roll into one inch size balls.
  • Place peanut butter balls on a small tray lined with wax paper. 
  • Place the tray in the freezer while you melt the chocolate.
  • Place chopped chocolate in a microwavable bowl. Add 1-2 teaspoons of vegetable oil to chocolate and stir to coat. This will help alimony the chocolate smooth, and help thin it a little. You may need to add increasingly oil, depending on how thick your chocolate seems once melted.
  • Microwave on high, stirring every 30 seconds until chocolate can be stirred smooth. Be shielding not to overheat the chocolate! You want to have the fries mostly melted, and be worldly-wise to stir it smooth.
  • Dip each peanut butter wittiness into the melted chocolate. (I find this easiest to do by dropping the wittiness into the chocolate, spooning chocolate over it, and then lifting it out with two forks. Let it lard for a few seconds, then place on tray).
  • Place when on wax paper lined tray.
  • Once you have all of the balls dipped, place tray in freezer for well-nigh 10 minutes or until chocolate is hardened. (Make sure it's completely hardened!)
  • Remove from freezer. 
  • Place 1/2 cup powdered sugar into a shallow, wide bowl. Roll each peanut butter wittiness into the powdered sugar. Add increasingly powdered sugar to trencher as needed.
  • Store in snapped container in refrigerator until ready to eat.
