Puppy Chow (Amped Up)


Puppy Chow, Muddy Buddies…whatever you call it, it is a classic Holiday treat.  It is easy to make and the flavors are a classic.  Just melt , mix, shake, and dump. You could easily have the kids work on this one for you, or at least help. And there is a decent chance you have all of the ingredients in the house already.

You know I can’t get enough peanut butter and chocolate, so it should come as no surprise to you that I have adapted this classic to have MORE!  I always loved the pieces that got stuck together because they had so much peanut butter and chocolate between them.  Well, now I make my own, and figured all the pieces should be like that :)

There are all sorts of different recipes out there for different version of this; candy cane, or lemon, or white chocolate etc. But I like a classic.  If you have peanut allergies in your house Sun Butter would work great in this.  Or maybe some Biscoff spread if you want to go crazy.

  1. This is just what I need to nosh on whilst I’m glued to the computer for hours on end! 😀

  2. I wish we got those Chex cereals in the UK. I haven’t seen anything similar with corn or rice, only wheat.

    This would be something I’d love to munch on whilst watching Christmas TV in front of the fire with my family. :) Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas! xoxo

  3. I’d love a big bowl right now!

  4. The stuck together pieces are my favorite too :) I love the idea of using cookie butter in this!

  5. even though puppy chows are a classic holiday treat, i have not still not gotten around to making them but they sure look tasty and cute!

  6. I have always wanted to make these. I agree with you about peanut butter and chocolate…YUM! :)

  7. I have never tried these but they sound great :)

  1. […] ever make it around Christmas time, because it disappears embarrassingly fast.  I kind of like my puppy chow over the top though.  In my opinion the more peanut butter and chocolate the better.  This version is almost fudgy in […]

  2. […] usually only make Puppy Chow around Christmas time.  My family eats it like crazy, so I am not sure why I only make it one time […]
