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.

    So at first I was concerned that it had corn in it. Then I saw that those little yellowy looking things were garlic. Now I’m sold! I’ll be making this for my best friend’s surprise birthday party BBQ. Thanks so much!

    This is going to be a funny comment coming from me, for those who know me well. This recipe looks great, and I’m a person that hates regular ketchup! As one of the other commenters mentioned, this looks more like a salsa topping which is what I’m hoping for. Also, funny that you mentioned grills since we just purchased our first grill – perfect opportunity to try this recipe!

    This looks soooooo yummy. I’m always looking for something new to spread on burgers, it is grilling season after all, well not today, but still.

    Lots of yummy love,
