I'll be honest, I had never made Puppy Chow in my life...until this year! And now I am hooked, y'all! I am not a peanut butter fan, so I never saw the lure of Puppy Chow; but now that my eyes have been opened to all the yummy possibilities, I am a believer. It's one of the easiest treats to make, and so versatile (almost as versatile as bacon!).

Today's version is perfectly pink for Valentine's Day: Peppermint Crunch Puppy Chow



Don't they look delicious!?! Want to learn how to make some for your next snack? Great! Here is how I made my
 

Ingredients 

  • 9 cups Chex Cereal (I used a mix of Rice and Corn cereal)
  • 1/4 cup White Chocolate Chips
  • 2 cups (entire bag) Andes Peppermint Crunch baking chips (I picked up these lovelies at Target this week on clearance...I think they are seasonal, so hurry and pick some up!)
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar

Instructions

Pour measured Chex cereal into a lage bowl.
In microwavable bowl, microwave peppermint crunch baking chips, butter, and white chocolate chips on High for 1 minute.

Stir. Microwave again for about 30 seconds (or until mixture can be stirred smooth).


Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into large re-sealable plastic bag with the powdered sugar. Seal bag and shake gently to coat the cereal/chocolate mixture with sugar. Once cereal/chocolate mixture is well covered in powdered sugar, pour contents of bag onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.
