Puppy Chow

Today I was looking for a sweet treat to feed my cravings for sugar and chocolate and also something simple that my toddler could help in making. I found a really easy recipe for Puppy Chow on Food.com however it was for making a fairly big portion and as my husband is on a diet and its quite sugary for my son to eat too much of; I adjusted the quantities slightly.

My son really enjoyed helping pour the cereal into the bowl after I measured it out along with carefully stirring the melted mixture of chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter – and was even caught sneaking a few chocolate chips! He liked the texture of shaking the bag with the mixture in and seeing the powdered sugar move around the bag.

* For those with nut allergies you could try replacing the peanut butter for a nut-free chocolate spread.

Ingredients:

Chex cereal (any kind) – 3 cups

Chocolate chips – 1 cup

Peanut Butter (smooth) – 1/2 cup

Unsalted butter (melted) – 1/8 cup

Vanilla – 1 teaspoon

Powdered Sugar – 1 cup

Instructions:

  1. Measure Chex cereal into a mixing bowl and put to one side.
  2. Place chocolate chips, peanut butter and melted butter into a bowl. Microwave for 1 minute.
  3. Stir.
  4. Cook for another 15 seconds or until smooth.
  5. Add vanilla.
  6. Pour mixture over the cereal and stir until coated.
  7. Pour mixture into a Ziploc bag and add the powdered sugar.
  8. Shake well until coated.
  9. Pour mixture onto baking sheet or waxed paper to cool.
