Cinnamon Puppy Chow

Last weekend, my sisters and mom came to visit me in Cincinnati. It was time once again for our annual girls weekend. The weekend was filled with some fun touristy activities, movies on the couch, and just lots of catching up. It also included some great food.

Since I was hosting, I got to go all out and show off my grilling skills (Hubby disappeared for the weekend to give us the full girls weekend experience). I also whipped up some ice cream, some sorbet, and some snacks. My family is a big snacking family and Puppy Chow is one of our all time favorites.

In fact, one of the first holidays I spent with Hubby, I whipped up a batch of Puppy Chow for his family. They had never heard of it, but devoured it just the same. This Cinnamon Puppy Chow is absolutely addictive. As a clan, we demolished the first batch on Thursday night. So we whipped up another batch on Saturday night for the second round of chick flicks.

Whether it’s for girls weekend, hanging with the kids, or just for yourself, you want to make this Cinnamon Puppy Chow.

Cinnamon Puppy Chow

If you like Puppy Chow, you're going to love this cinnamon version. It's down-right addictive!

Yield: 4 cups

Ingredients:

4 cups Chex cereal
2/3 cup cinnamon chips
4 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon

Directions:

Pour the Chex cereal into a medium bowl.

Melt the cinnamon chips and butter in a microwave save bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Heat for another 15 seconds and stir until completely smooth.

Pour cinnamon chip mixture over Chex cereal. Stir to coat cereal completely. I found that using my hands to gently toss with cereal was the best way to completely coat the cereal.

Mix the powdered sugar, sugar, and cinnamon in a gallon sized Ziplock bag. Add cinnamon coated Chex and toss.

    This cake looks incredible! coconut and lemon are two of my favorite flavors; I’m glad you don’t have to choose one or the other with this recipe.

    Beautiful cake! I’ve been craving a coconut cake, but I know too many people who don’t like coconut cake that if I made it I wouldn’t have anyone to share. Boo.

    I told my girlfriend I would bake her a cake for her birthday this Sunday !!! I got lemon curd and coconut stuck in my brain, so I started googling… which led me to your page !!! This recipie looks almost perfect !!

    Couple questions…

    Do you think the coconut extract was too strong for the cake, because you also have the browned coconut pcs too? I was considering vanilla bean cake, lemon curd and toasted coconut on the outside… but perhaps that wouldn’t be enough coconut flavour…. your thoughts?

    Lastly… what did you use as the frosting to keep the toasted coconut on? It looks like whipping cream…. ?!?!?

    Thanks !!!
    Kelly

    P.S
    This is the first cake I’ve ever baked !!! lol
