Christmas Goodies:: Puppy Chow


Have you ever eaten Puppy Chow before?

No silly, not Puppy Chow for puppies, Puppy Chow for humans!

So easy, so fun for the kiddos, so perfect for breakfast Christmas goody bags!!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter*
4 1/2 cups cereal squares (Chex, Crispix and Puffins all work great for this recipe!)
3/4 cup confectioner's sugar

Directions:
In a large saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate chips.  Add peanut butter and mix until smooth.  Remove from heat, add cereal and stir until coated.  Pour powdered sugar into a large plastic bag, add cereal and shake until well coated.  {Store in an airtight container.}

*Nut allergies in your crowd?  Replace the peanut butter with 2 tablespoons of butter.  Remember to check your chocolate chips and cereal to make sure they don't have trace amounts of nuts.

I used these Cinnamon Puffins that I had in our pantry and they are perfect.  
Maybe you already have a cereal on hand that you can use.

Ooey gooey chocolatiness.

Licking the spoon is required of course…..

….then shake!!!

Puppy Chow sits nice and still for bokeh attempts.

The children, however, do not.  Ahhh well, they're cute, I'll keep them!

Chow away, friends.

What's one or two?  Or a whole bowlful??  I mean they're almost healthy with all that cereal under there, right??

If you're looking for more Christmas treats, check out my Pretzel Fudge recipe from last year or come with me to….


Thanks for hosting, Karianne and Natasha!

A very Merry Christmas season to all!

First, I've never seen a dish of puppy chow styled so chic! Very nice!! I've never made it, but a friend treats me to hers every year, it would be beyond dangerous for me to have that sitting around!
