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.

    That is a gorgeous salad. Have you thought about adding some mango to it?

    I have a recipe similar with mangos and strawberries and it is delicious. I have made it with strawberries alone and it was just as good, though.

    I have not thought to add mango to this salad. Sounds intriguing.
