Homemade Puppy Chow (not for your puppy, kids love this)

on July 20, 2012


A delicious quick-and-easy dessert or snack of Chex cereal coated with chocolate, peanut butter, and powdered sugar


About 18 cups


1 stick butter
18 cups corn or rice chex cereal (or off-brand equivalent)
2 cups chocolate chips (12 ounce bag)
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3-4 cups powdered sugar (use more if needed)


1. Divide powdered sugar in half in 2 gallon-sized zip-lock bags. Set aside.

2. Put the cereal in a large bowl. Melt chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter over low heat. Stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal in bowl and stir until coated.

3. Spoon cereal into the two bags of powdered sugar. Seal the bags, leaving extra air-space inside, and shake to coat. When the cereal is thoroughly coated open the bags and let them cool, over the course of about 30 minutes stirring them each a couple of times.* Close bag after cool.

Additional Notes:

*You can also spread the finished puppy chow out on a cookie sheet to cool, if you don’t want the bother of having to stir it occasionally as it cools. Basically you just want to prevent soggy puppy chow due to condensation!
