Have you ever had Puppy Chow before? It might sound like the name of a dog food, but it is actually a tasty snack for humans. This Puppy Chow Recipe is super simple and perfect to make with kids. If your are still hungry after making these, try some of our Easy Snacks for Kids.
Puppy Chow Recipe
To make this Puppy Chow recipe, pour 9 cups of Chex into a large bowl and set aside.
Then, combine chocolate chips, peanut butter, butter and vanilla in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave at 30 second intervals until the ingredients have melted.
Stir the ingredients until the mixture is smooth.
Pour the peanut butter mixture over the cereal. Stir until the Chex is evenly coated.
Kids can help with the stirring provided the bowl is cool and they do not touch the peanut butter mixture, which can be hot.
Take two large ziploc bags and place ¾ cup of powdered sugar into each bag.
Add the Chex to the bags, seal carefully, and shake, shake, shake! This is my kid’s favorite part. Just make sure you have sealed the bag first or you will have a powdered sugar mess everywhere!
Pour the Chex onto a cookie sheet to allow it to set and harden.
Once it has set, it is ready to serve. Pour some into bowls or divide into goody bags for a party treat.
I love to serve this Puppy Chow at gathering, though if you do, keep in mind that it goes fast. You might want to make a double batch!

All you do is print the plans, color-coded grocery lists, and recipes you want for that month. Don’t worry, there are lots of options, so even picky eaters will find something they like.
Then when it is time for dinner, make that night’s recipe (choices include make-ahead, freezer meals, slow-cooker recipes, and other time-saving strategies).
