Puppy Chow

Puppy Chow is another family favorite that comes straight off the cereal box. There’s no need to mess with this classic. It combines chocolate, peanut butter, and powdered sugar. What more could you ask for? And, as an added bonus, it’s so easy to throw together and nobody can keep their hand out of the bowl!

I recommend using rice or corn chex for this recipe. They seem to be more airy. I’ve made Puppy Chow with wheat chex and it tastes fine, it’s just a bit more dense.

      Haha, making your way through a bag of candy is totally acceptable when stuck indoors from a snow storm in my book! Glad to see you guys made it through Nemo ok.
