Cooking with Kids Episode Three - Puppy Chow

Forgot about this recipe? The kids love it! This little snack is so easy and so good, it doesn't last through the day at our house. So grab the Crispix and whip up a batch of Puppy Chow with the kids...and then make something really healthy for dinner!

Summertime tea party with pizza, nectarines, and puppy chow.

One year ago: Wild Alaskan Halibut with Zucchini, Tomato and Onion

Puppy Chow

1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 tsp vanilla
9 cups Crispix cereal
1 1/2 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 1/2 tsp vanilla. Stir well.
Place the Crispix cereal in a very large bowl.
Pour the peanut butter mixture over the cereal and toss evenly.
Coat with powdered sugar, sprinkling evenly over the mixture as you toss to coat each piece. (A fine mesh sieve might work well to do this.)


  1. awwwhhh.....what a sweet tea party, with the perfect menu!!!! My nieces make puppy chow all the time, and I've never gotten the recipe. I can't wait to try it. I loooove your new title design!!! Looks like you've had some time to play while the kiddos have been away :)

  2. We are still pulling puppy chow out of the freezer our neighbor's kids made for us a christmas. It really is addictive, almost as much as pam's popcorn!

  3. You still have some from Christmas! Wow - that's will power!
