Cake Batter Muddy Buddies

So last month my family had a little get together. I had seen cake batter muddy buddies floating around. I have not made anything cake batter flavored before, but it sounded good. I decided to make regular Muddy Buddies and Cake Batter Muddy Buddies {my daughter decided to call them Snow Buddies}

I'll be honest when I first tasted the Snow Buddies I didn't like them. I tried them immediately after making them and it seemed like there was too much cake mix powder. HOWEVER, the next day when I pulled them out to share with the family I could not stop eating them. The cake mix flavor had blended in with the white chocolate and was no longer overpowering. 

So which did we like better?

Personally I could not decide. Whichever one I was eating at the moment was the one I liked best. 

Overall though, I think most of my family liked the Snow Buddies.

Another plus of the Snow Buddies is there is no peanut butter, so my oldest can eat them. And she loved them. 

Have you made either of these before? Which did you like better?

  4. I love this idea--my oldest can't have peanuts either and so I feel like we've missed out on the whole "muddy buddy" experience but this sounds like a perfect solution!! Thanks! PS--found you from Junk in their Trunk!!

  5. I've never heard of these snow buddies, but they look yummy. And I'll definitely have to keep them in mind for those that I know can't have peanuts. Thanks for the recipe link!
