Who let the dogs out? . . .Puppy Chow!

I know, it’s an easy recipe that everyone probably already has. But my taste testers LOVE Puppy Chow so I thought I would go ahead and whip up a batch. The only complaint was that this is one messy snack, so if you have fussy tasters at your house you might cut back on the powdered sugar just a bit.


  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 cups Crispix or Rice Chex cereal
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

  1. Combine peanut butter, butter and chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute.  Stir to blend all ingredients thoroughly.
  2. Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.  Stir well.
  3. Place the cereal in a VERY LARGE bowl.
  4. Pour the peanut butter-chocolate mixture over the cereal and toss evenly, making sure all the cereal gets covered.
  5. Place the powdered sugar in a large zip-lock bag (I used the 2 gallon size).
  6. Add the coated cereal to the bag, making sure to leave enough room to shake the puppy chow.
  7. Shake the bag vigorously to evenly coat each piece of the puppy chow with powdered sugar.

Serving suggestions for parties include serving the puppy chow in an actual NEW and CLEAN cute ceramic dog dish.
