Puppy Chow… Ow… Ow…


First, I need to establish the three categories of possible relationships that you, the reader have with puppy chow. Some of you have heard of puppy chow and experienced it in all of its greatness. In the second group there are those of you that think you don’t know what puppy chow is and that is because you call it by another name (muddy buddies, mud puppies, crack(?!), trash, white trash). The last group is the saddest category of them all…you have never experienced puppy chow and you think I am crazy for eating dog food. I did a Google search for puppy chow and was not able to find the creator of the chocolate-peanut butter masterpiece. I first heard of this recipe about 5 years ago and can’t remember who told me. I am pretty sure it was from a friend or Aunt…. Anyway, this is one of those recipes you don’t have to write down because it is so easy! It is great for a football watch party, Bible study, and to be honest it is pretty much fabulous for any event.

The Goods:
  • 8 cups of Chex Rice Cereal (I use the store brand)
  • 1-12 oz bag of Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 1 stick of Butter
  • Powder Sugar
In a microwavable bowl combine the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Microwave for approximately 2 minutes or until the trifecta is melted. Stir until your mixture reaches a good consistency. This will take a little while.


In a large bowl place the 8 cups of Chex.


Add the chocolate/peanut butter/butter mixture (I had to write all 3 because they are all equally worthy).


In a large *reliable* zip lock bag place a generous amount of powder sugar (I'm sorry…I forgot to measure). Now add about half of your Chex mixture.


WARNING: BE SURE…BE VERY SURE…That you sealed your bag perfectly. Now shake your bag until all the Chex are covered with a good amount of powder sugar. “Good amount” to me is not being able to see much chocolate. If you see too much chocolate add more powder sugar and shake again (see warning again before shaking).


Lay the Chex on a couple sheets of wax paper to cool. Repeat the same steps with the second half of the Chex mixture.


Now go put on your pants with the elastic waist band, pour yourself a tall glass of cold milk and enjoy some puppy chow while it is still warm. If you are like me you can’t let it “cool” for too long because it will somehow cause you extreme stomach pains….If you do not understand that statement, you are someone that has something called self control. I on the other hand, have to go ahead and store the puppy chow in an airtight container out of sight.



Grace, peace and be sure to enjoy some sweets.
