How to Make Puppy Chow (for people :))
Step 1. Measure out 9 cups of the cereal into a large bowl. I really like to use Crispix because the texture is just right for this recipe. You can also use rice Chex cereal or the store brand. The choice is all yours. It will be good any way you choose.
Step 2. Melt the chocolate chips, butter, and peanut butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir it constantly so that it doesn't burn to the bottom or sides of the pan. You have to pay attention to this step so that you don't ruin your yummy treats.
Step 3. Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the cereal and stir it gently until all of the cereal is coated. Make sure you are really gentle with this step so that you don't break the cereal.
Step 4. Pour the coated cereal into the paper bag and add the powdered sugar to the bag. Shake the bag gently until all of the cereal is coated with the powdered sugar.
Step 5. Pour it all into a serving bowl and start snacking. This is Puppy Chow Snack Mix.
