Homemade Puppy Chow Snack
This recipe for Puppy Chow came from my grandmother. I remember growing up asking her to make it whenever I was there. I've used this recipe with parties and school events for my children.
What you need:
- 1 c. peanut butter
- 1 stick butter
- 1 bag chocolate chips
- chex cereal
- 2 c. powdered sugar
- 2/3 c. powdered milk
- Melt the first 3 ingredients then stir through the cereal or shake all together in paper bag.
- Then combine the powdered sugar and powdered in a bag and add the cereal mixture and give it a good shake until it is well coated.
- When it's all mixed, lay on wax paper and let stand till ready to serve.
You can make it a cute and fun presentation by serving it up in a new plastic dog food bowl!
I love that you added this recipe! I've tasted this treat at a party, but I never actually knew the details of how to make Puppy Chow.
Now that I see how easy it is, I've got no excuses. I'll be visiting my nieces and nephews soon and I think this is just the recipe to make with them.
You didn't say specifically, but I'm guessing this would make a decent sized batch. Do you use a whole box of Chex mix?
I suppose I could experiment to get the right proportions, but if you can provide that detail it will save most of us the hassle. :)
Thanks again for sharing this yummy recipe for kids (and big kids like me!).
