I loooooove Muddy Buddies and I love cupcakes, so why not combine the two? Muddy Buddies have always been a favorite of mine because its so easy to make, it’s delicious, and it reminds me of being in college when I wanted a sweet snack.
It doesn’t get much easier by basically just throwing all of the ingredients in a large plastic bag, shake, and that’s it! These crispy bites resemble a sweet sprinkled vanilla cupcake and they are extremely addicting so beware!

Cupcake Muddy Buddies
- 6 cups of Rice Chex cereal
- 12 ounces of white chocolate candy melts
- 1 tsp butter extract
- 1 cup of french vanilla cake mix
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup of sprinkles; use as much as desired 🙂
- Pour cereal into a large gallon zip-lock bag. In a microwavable bag, melt chocolate and butter extract for 1 minute, then stir until melted.
- Pour melted chocolate into bag and shake until cereal is covered in chocolate mixture. Add sprinkles and shake.
- Add in cake mix and powdered sugar and shake until completely coated. Add more sprinkles if you would like! In my option, you can never have too many sprinkles in/on anything.
- Transfer covered muddy buddies into cookie sheet and discard the excess powder. *An easier way to discard powder is to place a cooling rack on the cookie sheet before placing muddy buddies on them. Enjoy!
