Puppy Chow

Growing up one of my all time favorite things to make was Puppy Chow. I can remember making big batches of it with my mom and brother when I was little. Every time we would make it my brother and I would argue over who got to shake the bag to mix the powdered sugar on it. Looking at these photos is making me hungry for it ... I guess I'll need to make some for the holidays this year! 

Puppy Chow


9 cups Crispix cereal (I am a purist NO Chex here!)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar 

1.  Measure out cereal in large bowl and set aside. Measure out powdered sugar and set aside. (doing this for both will help later!!)

2.  Heat chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter on stove until everything has melted and combined.3.  Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until coated.

4.  Pour mixture into large paper bag and add powdered sugar.  (You can use a Ziploc bag, very large plastic Tupperware or a paper bag ... Do NOT use metal.  I tried it doesn't work)

 5.  Shake until well coated.

This is me shaking around in the kitchen.  Seriously don't use a metal mixing bowl.  It just sticks to the sides.

6. Enjoy!!
