Strawberry Cheesecake Muddy Buddies

Oh do I love me some Muddy Buddies. You would think then, that my recipe box would be loaded with muddy buddy recipes. The truth is I don’t dare make them. When it comes to muddy buddies, I have absolutely no self-control. (Frankly, cookies fall into this category as well) I could literally eat pounds of muddy buddies. I found this out to be true the first time I made a batch of muddy buddies,  a batch of peppermint muddy buddies. A big mistake! I couldn’t stop eating them, one batch, then another and another. I was starting to get worried that I’d have to join a MB support group!

Strawberry Time

It’s Strawberry Time!! Make a big batch of Strawberry Cheesecake Muddy Buddies and make some friends! After all, muddy buddies are meant to be shared with your buddy. Even though this recipe doesn’t contain any “real” strawberries, you could certainly add some crushed freeze dried strawberries for that added strawberry flavor and crunch. Add the crushed freeze-dried strawberries after pouring the melted white chocolate over the cereal and proceed with the recipe.

Dry Jello Pudding Mix

This recipe is made with two flavors of dry Jello pudding and pie filling mix. Half a package of dry strawberry flavored jello pudding and pie mix is used along with half a package of cheesecake flavored jello pudding and pie mix. This gives the muddy buddies a more authentic strawberry cheesecake flavor. Combine the remaining dry pudding and pie mixes together and make according to package directions for a delicious pudding snack.
