Puppy Chow

Do you remember making this at Girl Scouts?! Ahh the memories...camping in cabin/tents, selling cookies This snack has everything; chocolate, peanut butter, and no baking, making it perfect for these German summers with no air conditioning. What's really neat about this recipe is everyone has there own spin on it! So feel free to use this one or jazz it up on your own!

9 cups Chex cereal
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar

  1. Measure out cereal in a large bowl, set aside. In a gallon size zip lock bag, add 1 cup of powdered sugar.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, combine chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter. Microwave in 60 second intervals stirring in between until smooth. Stir in vanilla.
  3. Slowly pour on cereal, gently mixing until evenly coated. Let cool completely.
  4. Pour cereal mixture into bag, seal and shake. Add last cup of sugar and continue to shake.
That's it! I've read on a few different recipes that freezing the Puppy Chow before serving makes it less messy, worth a try, especially if you're making it for your kiddos! Enjoy!
