First off, do you call it muddy buddies or puppy chow? Because I grew up calling it puppy chow but it seems like most of the internet does not. Is that just a Midwestern thing?A closeup photo showing the pink cheesecake coating on the rice chex cereal.

I made an absolutely divine cheesecake the other day for a birthday party.  It was a malted milk ball cheesecake, here’s the link. It started me off on a cheesecake kick! I thought what can I make with flavors I love, like strawberry cheesecake, but that my little nieces and nephews will want to eat too? I couldn’t make another cheesecake so soon because I’d just eaten about half a cheesecake by myself, so muddy buddies it was!

Strawberry cheesecake muddy buddies really does taste like cheesecake. The coating for the muddy buddies has crushed freeze dried strawberries for real strawberry flavor. Mix that with cheesecake pudding mix and powdered sugar. Delish! Add in a few more freeze dried strawberries and mini grahams and it’s like you’ve got all the layers: the crust, the filling and the fruit topping.Freeze dried strawberries, almond bark and cheesecake pudding on a wood background with cereal sprinkled around it.
