Around this time of year, it is crucial to find easy desserts to give to family and friends, that also taste delicious. Puppy chow, also known as muddy buddies, is composed of a very few number of ingredients, and is addicting! For those unfamiliar with the snack, it is usually Chex cereal covered with peanut butter and chocolate and then dusted with confectioners sugar. I got the recipe from here, but substituted the M&M’s for pretzels.
Puppy Chow (it makes A LOT)
14 cups Chex cereal or a similar variety
18 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
½ cup salted butter melted
1 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
3-4 cups of pretzels
4-5 Cups powdered sugar
Combine the pretzels and cereal in a 2 large bowls. Melt the butter, peanut butter, and chocolate together in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds.
Drizzle half off the mixture onto one of the bowls and mix well to combine. Place half of the confectioners sugar in a large paper bag and then put in the chocolate covered cereal. Shake until the cereal is coated with the sugar. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Store in an airtight container. Dig in!
