First of all, Puppy Chow is NOT for puppies. No. It's actually Puppy Chow for People. Er, no wait, that's not quite right either. It's a treat for people, but named Puppy Chow because...Hm, you know I don't really know why they call it puppy chow.
|My daughters, granddaughter, and me!|
Let me just give you the recipe, so you can make it. When you taste the sweetness and creamy flavor of peanut butter-chocolate,you won't care what the name is either.
|Ingredients to make puppy chow for people|
Puppy Chow for People
1 12 oz. box Crispix Cereal, Rice Chex, or Corn Chex
2 ½ - 3 cups of powdered sugar
12 oz. chocolate chips
1 cup creamy peanut butter
¼ c. margarine
Melt peanut butter, margarine, and chocolate chips in a bowl in the microwave on high for one minute. Stir. Heat for 30 seconds more.
Pour mixture over cereal in a large bowl. (This is the most difficult part of the recipe. Covering all the cereal with the thick chocolate is difficult. I gave up stirring it with a spoon. Instead I buttered my fingers and tossed it together. Be careful. It is hot. Later, a friend suggested wearing gloves and spray them with oil. Either way, I think the kids would have fun trying to mix it with their hands. Of course, watch out they don’t lick the sweet chocolate off their hands while stirring!! It is tempting.)
Put powdered sugar in a paper grocery bag and add cereal mix. Shake till well coated.
You may store in a tight container or plastic bag.
Maybe you can make this treat and give it to your family and friends for Christmas.
