I look forward to Puppy Chow all year round; it really is one of my favorite parts of the holidays!
I remember making this with my parents and/or my brother a lot. It was even packaged in cute little bags and handed out to my elementary school teachers a a few times. It apparently didn’t hold such significance in Joseph’s childhood, as he still seems disgusted every time I call it “Puppy Chow.”
Not to be confused with this:
This is all you need! Super easy.
½ cup peanut butter
¼ cup butter
1 cup chocolate chips
½ teaspoon vanilla
9 cups Chex cereal
1 ½ cups powdered sugar
Combine peanut butter, butter and chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for one minute then stir to blend all ingredients thoroughly. Add vanilla. Stir well.
Place the cereal in a large bowl. Pour the peanut butter-chocolate mixture over the cereal and toss evenly, making sure all the cereal gets a good covering.
Coat with powdered sugar, sprinkling evenly over the cereal and tossing as you sprinkle to cover each piece well.
Alternatively, place cereal mixture in a gallon-size ziplock bag. Pour in powdered sugar, zip bag, and shake until covered. Done!
