This is a great base recipe but I like to cut the peanut butter to 1/2 cup add 1 1/4 cups of chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of butterscotch chips which add a little bit of something extra. I melt all of this in a large pan and then add the cereal to the pan to cut on dishes. I also add about half a bag of powdered sugar to a double-lined paper bag. I let the puppy chow sit for about 5 minutes in the fridge before adding it to the bag. Shake vigourously for a few minutes to make sure each piece is completely covered and then just toss the mess.

Awful. This is extremely rich and messy. I had a lot of people tell me how delicious this is so I made it. I don't love the taste of powdered sugar so maybe something else to coat it would be better. As it stands I won't ever be making this again. Read More

Delicious recipe! I make this for gifts at Christmas. I once made the mistake of doubling the recipe because I needed so much. If you need two batches then definitely make separate batches. A great sweet snack! Read More

My daughter had Puppy Chow at a band party last year and loved it. She had no idea what the ingredients were. Needless to say I was so pleased to find that All Recipes had a selection of Puppy Chow recipes to choose from. Now it's my turn to host the Band Party and I followed Stephanie's recipe. My daughter said it looks the same but isn't quite sweet enough. After reading the reviews of other Puppy Chow recipes next time I will add less peanut butter and mix semi-sweet & milk chocolate morsels and more powdered sugar. I liked another reviewers idea adding M&Ms and pretzel pieces to the mix. Thanks Stephanie for sharing. Read More

Excellent starting point thank you! I used 1/3rd corn chex 1/3rd wheat chex and 1/3rd mini pretzels. I also added 1/2 cup chocolate chips for total coverage. Let sit in fridge for 20 minutes or so before covering with powedered sugar (which I doubled for complete coverage). Finally after coating I placed on pan and put in freezer for 30 minutes before serving. This allowed for a wonderful non messy non sticky snack that my whole family loved! Read More

This was a great recipe for me and my 4 children. They loved it. It was so easy! One thing. The butter chocolate and butter mixture was VERY thick so after I melted it I added just a splash of milk. It worked great! Read More

So addictive and easy to make! However being impatient I didn't wait until the mix cooled enough for the sugar. Read More
