Pumpkin Oreo Muddy Buddies

I’ve been looking forward to Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses all year long! And now that they’re finally here, these Pumpkin Oreo Muddy Buddies were the first thing on my to-make this!

Last year, Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses were one of my most well-loved seasonal ingredients. I hoarded bags of them! Which is funny, because I was actually super hesitant to try them. Pumpkin flavored chocolate? eh…….. not so sure about that! I mean, I felt like you had to be sort of careful with your pumpkin. Like… limit it to baked goods basically.

Turns out I was totally wrong. Pumpkin is delicious in ALLLLLLLLL sorts of things thanks to these Hershey Kisses!

And everybody already knows that pumpkin and Oreo are practically soul mates, so this combo really couldn’t fail!

I do have one thing I need to throw out there before I give you the recipe– if you’ve been around here for a while, you may have seen some of my previous muddy buddy recipes. A couple of them call for canned frosting + melted chocolate (the frosting replaces the peanut butter in traditional muddy buddies). It works well for me, and I like it. BUT, I have received several comments from people who said that method doesn’t work very well for them. So, I did NOT make these muddy buddies with frosting in them, and I’ll be going back to make some edits on those past recipes. I want EVERYONE to enjoy these recipes!! And it’s just as good (maybe better for some of you!) without the canned frosting. Plus, one less ingredient, right!?

Anyway. Just wanted to get that out there. I’d hate for a bad muddy buddies rep to have preceded this recipe and keep anyone from enjoying the awesomeness that is pumpkin + Oreo + the best cereal ever + heaps of powdered sugar!


Pumpkin Oreo Muddy Buddies


  • 2 cups Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses
  • 7 cups Chex Cereal
  • 1 cup crumbled Oreos
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar


  1. In large microwave safe bowl, heat the Hershey Kisses for 45 seconds or until melted. Stir until smooth. Add the cereal to the bowl, a few cups at a time, stirring gently and coating the cereal as you go.
  2. Add the oreos to the bowl, and stir gently to coat.
  3. Place the powdered sugar in a gallon sized zip top bag. Spoon the coated cereal mixture into the bag. Seal the bag, and shake to coat the cereal mixture.
  4. Serve immediately or keep sealed in bag, and store for 3-4 days.

Don’t miss a bite!
