Cookies and Cream Oreo Chex Mix


Our kids beg for this cookies and cream oreo chex mix


My mother was right, I should have been more grateful for a younger body. I could eat an entire pizza by myself followed by candy and treats all night while watching movies. Clearly this was only for special occasions, but still. Mom used to say, “someday you’ll be older and wish you had that metabolism back!” That’s exactly what I thought about this cookies and cream oreo chex mix. The kids were devouring it at 9pm and I had to stop because I knew that not only would I not sleep well and probably end up with a tummy ache but it would also plant itself right on my outer thighs within an hour.

But good mercy it was worth it. It’s just those little cookies and cream candy bars by Hershey’s and then a little powdered sugar and oreo mixture sprinkled all over it. It’s gosh darn delicious!


Is Rice Chex Gluten Free?

Rice chex is made with rice and has no added malt flavoring.

Rice is naturally gluten free.

Rice Chex are gluten free.


Will Oreos Hurt a Dog?

Oreos are not recommened for dogs.

One or two oreos will probably not hurt a dog because there isn’t enough chocolate to be toxic.

Large amounts of oreos would maybe have enough chocolate to be dangerous for a dog.

The bigger problem with a few oreos is the sugar content.

Dogs should avoid high amounts of sugar.


How Long Will Chex Mix Keep?

Properly stored in an airtight container, Chex mix should keep up to 4 weeks.

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever seen mini cookies and cream candy bars. Any idea how many regular size candy bars that would be?

  2. oh sweet heeeeavens-I wish I had a 9 year old metabolism and could eat the entire bowl of this chex mix!!

  3. I don’t think I have a metabolism left… Although it doesn’t stop me from trying recipes like this! That’s what workouts are for, right? Pinned! Thanks for the recipe, Carrian:)

  4. Ha ha ha metabolism. Mine left at 25 and it just gets worse. I work out so much so I can eat this kind of thing! 🙂

  5. A slower metabolism is certainly one of the downsides of being an adult. But this chex mix looks worth the calories!!

  6. Hey Carrian, your blog is very nice, but I kindly encourage you to read food ingredients on the labels. We need to protect our kids from hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup and all things artificial and “chemicalized.” There are such better choices out there, even for a special treat. Why program them to crave the artificial…it’s doing no one any favors. Way too many of us are addicted to sugary desserts and low-nutrition snacks rather than wholesome, fresh foods. Thanks for listening.

  7. I could totally eat this by the bowl full!
