Puppy Chow: A Food Babies Classic Dish

Posted by kathleenerindavis on July 23, 2008

Eating parties are all-night cooking and eating fests that are held semi-annually. The menu changes each time to include new favorite recipes, but there are some staples. Puppy chow (or p.chow for those in the know) is a standby dessert staple. It’s fun and easy to make and can serve as either a main dessert, a dessert side dish, or a snack to eat while cooking.

Here’s how it’s done:

– One box of chex or chex-like cereal
– Peanut butter (smooth not crunchy; about a half cup)
– One bag of chocolate chips
– Powdered sugar (to coat)
– A really big pot with a lid (You can get creative with this if you don’t have big pot)

Melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter in the microwave (about one min., longer if needed)

Put a lot of the cereal (but not all) in the pot and pour the melted mix over it and mix like hell until thoroughly coated.

Pour lots of powdered sugar on top, put the lid on and shake like hell, repeat as necessary.


Warning: don’t try to get creative with this one; we once thought it would be a good idea to add coconut. It wasn’t. Don’t mess with perfection.
