What is the Crumbl Muddy Buddy Cookie?

Crumbl describes the muddy buddy cookie as a warm peanut butter cookie topped with a melty pool of milk chocolate, Muddy Buddies™ pieces, and finished with the PRETTIEST sprinkle of powdered sugar.

It is a fan favorite and now, you can make it at home for the entire family!

Using a standing mixer, beat the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and regular sugar until creamy. Push down sides as needed.

Beat in eggs, 1 at a time until combined

Beat in the vanilla extract

Whisk the dry ingredients into a medium bowl then gradually beat the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients

Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough into your hands and roll into a ball.

Place the dough balls onto a cookie sheet and lightly press them into a thick round disk
