Oh yeah, I went there! Chex cereal crust, peanut butter swirl cheesecake and lots of Muddy Buddies on top. What is a Muddy Buddy, you ask?!? This outrageously addictive snack, also called Puppy Chow, is made with Chex cereal or Crispix with melted peanut butter, butter, chocolate and lots of powdered sugar. So if you’ve never had Muddy Buddies before, now is the time to start!
This cheesecake was completely inspired by the flavors of the Muddy Buddies. The crust is made from Chex cereal and butter and the creamy cheesecake is swirled with delicious peanut butter.
You can serve the cheesecake without the Muddy Buddy topping but why would you?!? Okay, so my cheesecake has some cracks on the top but it allÂ gets hidden anyways. If you’ve made cheesecake before and you have a better method for baking so you don’t get those cracks, please share in the comments below and bake the cake however you want. I was seriously just not in the mood to make a water bath for my cheesecake…
