Vegan White Chocolate Pumpkin Muddy Buddies



 While I typically stick to fruits and veggies, I also love to have fun in the kitchen! One of my favorite things to do is to remake iconic childhood recipes to be more modern and vegan. It wasn’t until recently that I heard of the concept called “muddy buddies”.


I remember seeing them at friends houses as a child, but still wasn’t quite sure as to what it really was. So for those who are also not familiar with this concept, I’m sure you’re asking yourself, ..what the heck is a muddy buddy? lol


Simply put, it’s a quick and easy cereal-based dessert that’s coated in chocolate and tossed in powdered sugar. It sounds very off-putting, overwhelmingly sweet, and just not my cup of tea. However, if you mix up the chocolate, throw in some spices it’s actually quite interesting!








What’s fab about this recipe, is everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, can easily be made in bulk, crispy, crunchy, sweet, has notes of pumpkin, perfect for fall, & even great as a homemade gift!



If you love nostalgic eats or all things pumpkin, you’re going to love this new vegan White Chocolate Pumpkin Muddy Buddies!





Why this recipe is great: 








Can easily be made in bulk

Perfect for entertaining

  1. After coating, are the treats sieved to remove excess chocolate or you dip one by one?

    1. You don’t need to remove any excess chocolate as it will all be absorbed, but you can shake out the extra powdered sugar using a large strainer if desired. Let me know how it turns out!
