Recipe from Picky Palate
Puppy chow is one of my favorite snacks around the holidays (and just about any time really). I know that in the Midwest it is usually called puppy chow but in other parts of the country it goes by other names such as muddy mix, muddy buddies, and monkey mix. No matter what you call it, it’s still yummy! Typical puppy chow consists of some sort of Chex cereal, peanut butter and chocolate melted together and mixed with the cereal, then a coating of powdered sugar. Delicious right?
Earlier this summer I saw this recipe from Jenny and I couldn’t wait to try it! I have been saving it for my holiday baking, but I may have to start making it more often. The general taste and texture of original puppy chow is still there, but the addition of the white chocolate and jelly take it to a whole new level. I think this may be even more addicting than the original! Enjoy!
White Chocolate Peanut Butter & Jelly Puppy Chow
9 cups Chex cereal
¾ cup white chocolate chips
½ cup creamy peanut butter
¼ cup strawberry jelly
2 Tbsp butter
2 cups powdered sugar
Place cereal in a large mixing bowl. In a separate, medium sized bowl place white chocolate chips, peanut butter, jelly and butter. Microwave for one minute or until melted. Stir to combine, then pour over cereal and mix to coat. Spoon cereal mixture into large gallon sized ziploc bag (or divide between two smaller bags). Pour powdered sugar into bag, seal, then shake well to fully coat cereal.
