Puppy Chow

How's that for a Title! I found this recipe on another blog. There are some great blogs written by foodies. I have found some neat recipes. The great part is you get to see photos of what things look like before you make them. I love to see pictures! So when I came across this recipe....that basically doesn't involve baking and it seemed fairly cheap to make. Another plus was that it made a big quantity. Anyway, one of my favorite blogs is This is where I came across the puppy chow recipe.

Puppy Chow

9 cups crispy rice cereal squares (like chex, I used generic), 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar


In a saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate; add peanut butter and mix until smooth.Remove from heat, add cereal and stir until coated.Pour powdered sugar into large plastic bag, add coated cereal and shake until well coated. Store in airtight container.

I have to say, I'm not a huge a peanut butter fan, but this I really like! Wes and Eric seem to enjoy it quite a bit. This one will be a keeper for us. I was glad to find a snack I could make to get away from store bought ones. I'm trying to avoid the hydrogenated oils. I also made sure to use a peanut butter that didn't have the harmful oils in it! I'm impressed that there are quite a few good brands out there without the junk in it! This recipe also keeps really well. This is a great snack to try. It's basically fool proof...and fast and easy! The results are yummy! :)
