There are many different ways to make puppy chow unique! I added red and green m&m’s for a Christmas time treat! We also dyed some red and green.
- 6 cups Chex cereal
- 1 cup Semi-sweet chocolate chips
- ½ cup Creamy peanut butter
- 1 ½ cups Powdered sugar
- 4 tbsp Butter
- M&M's optional
- Lay out a large piece of parchment paper on the table.
- In a large microwavable bowl, melt the chocolate chips, butter, and peanut butter. Do 30 seconds, then stir. Repeat until smooth and creamy.
- Pour the six cups of chex into the bowl and fold until all is covered.
- Put 1 cup of powdered sugar into a gallon ziploc bag then add the chocolatey chex mix. Top with ½ cup more powdered sugar. Zip the top closed then shake, shake, shake!
- Pour onto the parchment paper and let harden for 1-2 hours.
- Mix in m&m's if preferred.
- Enjoy or put in a storage container for up to 1 week.
