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.

    I am intrigued! I like Oreos and Doritos separately, so I will have to give this popcorn a try. My three-year-old is King of Interesting Combinations, so I know I’ll have a buddy to share it with. πŸ™‚

    Love this idea! Definitely going to try it soon. I am also thinking Sun Chips would be an awesome part of the combination

    What an interesting combo. I always did popcorn, Sourpatch Kids, and Raisinets at the movies, so I can see how this would work.

    • beantownbaker — February 3rd, 2013 @ 9:47 pm

      Woah – now that’s an interesting combination. I like all of those things separately. I’m going to have to try them all together the next time I go to a movie.

    This combination is crazy, but that just means I am going to have to go home and try it. This could totally hit the spot I am sure πŸ™‚

    I happen to think this sounds perfect, and not at all strange. But i’m the girl that likes to eat dortitos inside my PB&J sandwiches, and dip french fries in milkshakes…..so to me this makes sense! I’ll have to give it a try – thanks for posting!

    • beantownbaker — February 7th, 2013 @ 6:20 pm

      OMG I totally forgot about Doritos inside a PB&J!! I used to do that too. MMmmm.
