Making the Puppy Chow

The most time consuming part will be making the different flavors of puppy chow, but once you get into a rhythm, it's actually pretty simple!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Puppy Chow

{Recipe}:

  • 1 (12 oz.) box Rice Chex
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups powdered sugar

{Instructions}:

Pour the cereal into a large mixing bowl.

Add the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter to a double boiler or microwave safe container and heat until melted and creamy. [NOTE: The butter tends to melt better if it's cut into smaller pieces.]

Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the cereal and stir until the cereal pieces are coated. [NOTE: Optional, add a bag of festive M&M candies and toss the cereal again.]

Add a cup of powdered sugar to the bottom of a paper grocery bag, pour the chocolate covered cereal mixture into the bag, then top with the remaining powdered sugar.

Cinch the top of the bag and shake until the cereal is coated with powdered sugar.
