I reduced the amount of cereal to 8 cups, and added 1/4 cup butter and 1 tsp of vanilla to it. I cooled it slightly in the fridge before tossing with the powdered sugar so it doesn't absorb it so much...coats better with less. This is soooo adictive. I can't make it unless I know there are people here to help me eat it or it's gone before I know it! ****Here's a tip, line your measuring cup with saran wrap before mesauring the peanut butter. It will slide right out with no messy clean up! I do this for all sticky ingredients (shortening, honey, pb, corn syrup) Works great!***Read More
Okay, the dish itself deserves 5 stars, but this recipe caused alot of frustration to me! First, the chocolate mixture wouldn't become thin so i added some butter to help. Also, adding cereal to the skillet is a TERRIBLE idea. this turned into a clumpy mess and I actually had an emotional breakdown at my stove. I'm new to cooking and didn't realize how difficult adding cereal to the pan would've turned out. NEXT TIME, I'll put cereal on a baking pan lined with wax paper and pour mixure.. or maybe even a giant bowl would work better. ANYTHING is better than adding a ton a cereal to chocolate mixture & it turning into one clump. **If this happened to you, put the clump in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Repeat if necessary.Read More

I love this recipe. The only thing that I would add is that you can microwave the chocolate peanut butter mixture instead of heating on the stove. It makes it much easier. Just microwave for a minute, stir, then microwave for 30 seconds. It works great. Remember to use a microwave safe bowl. Love the recipe. Great snack for kids sleepovers and snacks at lunch.
Cute story to tell... I had a gathering and offered some Puppy Chow to 4 yr-old Anthony. He asked what was in it. I told him it was Chex cereal that had melted chocolate and peanut butter poured on it. Then it was tossed in powdered sugar. He says "Oh no... I couldn't possibly eat that." Thinking he was allergic to something I kind of freaked and asked why not. He put his little hand to his chest, took a step backwards and said "Because it sounds too delicious." FOUR YEARS OLD! Needless to say, I had to give the kid a hug. Anthony proceeded to gobble it up and even took a doggy bag (which he thought was hilarious) home for his brother.
I made this with one full 16 oz. box of Rice Chex, a full bag of chocolate chips, and one cup of p/b. Because of this large quantity, I had to move the sauce from the saucepan to a very large bowl to stir everything. What an easy way to make delicious snacks for a large group! And it's SOOO good!
Really great! A few suggestions. I added half a stick of butter so that the chocolate mixture would be more fluid (thus, easier to spread). 9 cups was WAY too much cereal to coat each piece of cereal completely, so I'd go with 7 or 8. Really great otherwise =)
LOVE this recipe! I have found that using a paper grocery bag works better for coating the chow with the powdered sugar though. Just a little note.
Coming across this recipe brought a smile to my face and evoked years and years of delightful memories with my children--classroom treats, sleepovers, birthday parties...even finding pieces of Puppy Chow underneath their beds! This is a treat, I'm sure, that has pleased millions of kids and adults alike. The original recipe adds 1/4 cup of butter melted with the chocolate chips and peanut butter, in the microwave, for about a minute and a half, stirring after one minute. Then stir in 1 tsp. of vanilla. Once laid out on waxed paper, the challenge is to wait until the Puppy Chow (or Muddie Buddies) is cool before you start nibbling!
I had always made this recipe with a stick of butter. I was surprised how tasty it came out with less fat! I did add extra peanut butter to make one cup(to have an even chocolate peanut butter taste.) and just stuck it all in the microwave to melt for a couple minutes.
It just isn't Christmas around here without this stuff. Last year things were a little hectic and I forgot to make the Puppy Chow and sure enough, by the end of the night, TWELVE people asked about it. It's SO easy--a little messy, though. The large bag works well, but so does a large bowl with a lid. Just pour everything into the bowl, pop on the lid, and shake your little heart out! Oh and peanut fans will LOVE this recipe with crunchy peanut butter! It really makes a difference!
CHANGE TIPS: To make the "goo" easier to toss, and for a bit of extra flavor, add 1/4 cup butter. Use a very large pot, (large enough to hold all the cereal in and toss), and melt the butter over low heat. Stir in the chips and peanut butter until melted. (I've made this with combinations of semi-sweet, milk chocolate, and butterscotch chips. Doesn't matter what proportions of which, as it's all delicious!) Stir the cereal into the melted mixture in the pot. Let cool in pot until pot is room temperature. Put pot in fridge for 5-10 minutes to firm the coating. Then put mixture into a 2-gallon ziploc bag that contains the sugar and shake until evenly coated. Store in refrigerator. Delicious! It goes fast, but do not double this recipe as it will be too difficult to stir it all together without spilling and making a mess. Just make two consecutive batches.
This is a SNAP TO MAKE! Tweaked it up a bit just for funzies!! 2 cu milk chocolate chips....1/2 cu peanut butter.... and a sprinkle of cinnamon melted in the microwave on 30 second blasts. Stir after every 30 seconds (this went fast). The cinnamon really added a nice flavor too (sort of like Mexican chocolate!)............. I had measured 12 cups of the cereal into a lg. Tupperware bowl. Poured the chocolate over it and gently stirred/folded it with a spatula (being careful to NOT break up the cereal pieces). After the chocolate was well folded in I added the powdered sugar right in the same bowl. I snapped the lid on the bowl...and gently shook and rolled it around in the bowl from side to side. Worked PERFECT and sooo easy! I was so pleased as it was still crunchy the next morning! Took it to work. Served it mounded up in aluminum cupcake wrappers (normally they are paper, but I found aluminum on sale last year) I served it up on a tray and it was easy for my coworkers to nab a cup and take it back to their desk. THEY LOVED IT!
I have made this for years - my kids love it! Just wanted to say that I sub peanut better chips for my son who does not like chocolate . . .
This is a fun snack. After mixing some of the cereal into the chocolate mixture, I poured it onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper to distribute the chocolate more evenly. After it was all coated I let it cool for a few minutes, then put it into a big bowl and sprinkled it with the powdered sugar. I did not use nearly as much powdered sugar as the recipe called for; it was plenty sweet with just a little to keep the cereal from sticking together too much. I also did not use the full amount of cereal as there was not enough chocolate to coat it all. Hint: do not add the powdered sugar until the chocolate has(mostly)cooled; otherwise you will get that wet texture others have mentioned and the chocolate will just absorb the sugar.
Love this stuff! :) I use Crispix cereal & add 1/4 c. butter to the choc/peanut butter...microwave...stir...then add 1 tsp. vanilla. I use a large, Tupperware cake-carrier to shake everything up in - only need 1 1/4 c. powdered sugar.
I like this recipe, and its pretty easy to make. I just wish the instructions would have mentioned that 9 cups of this cereal is really about one 12.8 oz box. That would have saved me some confusion,and some money since I bought 2 boxes. I made this exactly as directed, using chunky peanut butter as mentioned in a comment. I also added some mini M&Ms to add some color because it looked a little boring.
What's not to love about this (except maybe your expanding waistline because it's so hard to stop eating!)? This was devoured by grown-ups and kids alike at our gathering!
As did everyone else, I changed the original recipe. I used 8 cups Chex Rice cereal, 1 cup peanut butter, 1/4 c butter, 1 12 oz. bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, and 1 tsp vanilla. I melted the chips in the microwave for 1 minute. I stirred it and then I added the butter, vanilla, and peanut butter. I then microwaved it for another minute. While everything was in the microwave, I measured out my Chex cereal on a sheet of wax paper that I put on a cookie sheet (one with sides is best). I spread out the cereal and then I poured the melted microwave mixture over the cereal. After folding in the chocolate, I noticed that I had some excess chocolate, so I added a little more cereal. After everything was covered.I poured the chocolate covered cereal into a brown paper bag that had about 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar in the bottom. This is when the wax paper comes in handy! I just lifted the cereal and put it right into the bag. After shaking the bag, I opened it up to ensure that everything was coated with powdered sugar. After that, I put a new sheet of wax paper on the cookie sheet and poured the puppy chow on the sheet to cool.
This is easy and delicious! My 8 year old daughter showed her class at school how to make it, and the kids in her class and her teacher loved it. My kids can make it on their own - they melt the chocolate in the microwave in two 1-minute intervals (stirring in between minutes). It gets an A+ from all of us!
This recipe is a 5 star one adding the MISSING ingredients! The original recipe on the back of the Rice Chex box is the same, except for the addition of 1/4 cup butter and a teaspoon of vanilla (add after melting the butter/pb/chips in the microwave).
I doubled butter to make it easier to mix and added a 1/2 tsp almond extract. Trick for mixing chex: Just pour into a big bowl, spread your spoon around the top layer then pour into another big bowl and repeat back and forth. This limits broken chex.
Don't let the name fool you. Delicious
The only thing easier was eating it! I used a whole pkg of chocolate chips and nearly a box of Chex cereal and it made a ton but everyone LOVED it!
Love This Recipe! Is great for children's parties; can serve in dog dishes (new of course from the $1 store!) It is addicting...like potato chips!
this was SO simple and SO tasty! I loved munching on it a handful at a time, my 20 month old son also loved munching on them. My only problem with it, I got indigestion every time I would eat it. Turns out, I was getting indigestion from anything with peanut butter in it- because I later found out I am pregnant! :D
I've always been a big fan of puppy chow! I added some butter (1/4 Cup). The cereal/chocolate goo mix ratio is perfect. With the Chex Muddie Buddie recipe, they call for more cereal than the chocolate goo can handle. I didn't have any gallon size ziplocs so I just covered the bowl I mixed it in with Saran Wrap and that worked great! It didn't even leak any sugar! HOORAH! Thanks for the recipe!
A little messy to make, but so worth it!
Just made this after my son made it in preschool and brought some home. I used Crispix cereal, Jif natural peanut butter, added 1/4 c butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla after butter, pb, and choc chips melted. I melted everything in a large pot on the stove then dumped the cereal right into it and stirred it up (less dishes). Dumped the powdered sugar on top, put the lid on the pot, then shook it up to coat. Super easy and absolutely delicious! I'm taking some to a party and saving some for us :).

I used a 1/4 of butter and 1 tsp of vanilla for extra taste.
So easy, and I haven't met a kid who doesn't love this snack. For kids who have a peanut allergy, I have also used butterscotch chips in place of the peanut butter.
This was yummy! It is very important that you first melt chocolate on low and then add peanut butter. The second batch I made, I burned the chocolate. They still got eaten up just as fast but didn't taste as good!
This is so yummy and so easy! The kids love making it just as much as eating it! Just use caution with the hot chocolate and peanut butter when making this with the kids! I added a little more powdered sugar. I think I am going to follow someone's recommendation of using milk chocolate next time. That sounds great too!
I make this recipe with white chocolate chips and it has a flavor more reminiscent of tiger butter - it is delicious! I also used the crunchy corn bran cereal, and it doesn't detract from the flavor. **Some hints** If you choose to microwave the chocolate, heat it at 50% power for 30 seconds and stir until the bowl has cooled down, then put back in for 15 second intervals, stirring until the bowl cools inbetween. If you don't do this, your chocolate will get lumpy and crumbly and taste burnt. Also, if there is any water in your bowl, the chocolate will get lumpy, so make sure the bowl is thoroughly dry. after mixing in the cereal, cool in the fridge for at least 5 minutes, or it will soak up too much powdered sugar and be sickeningly sweet.
this was very tasty stuff.. i added a couple tablespoons of butter to the melted chocolate so it was a little runnyer.. wasnt sure how to mix the chocolate with the cereal so i just winged it, turned out good, a little clumpy but still yummy. i used a whole bag of chocolate chips, a little over a cup of pb and a whole box of cereal. made a nice big batch for a potluck at work
My 6th grade son made this and it turned out great! Recipe was quick and easy, the finished product looked good and stored well, and best of all it tasted delicious! (Only bad thing, was I couldn't quit eating it.)
very good, I use milk chocolate chips and a heaping 1/2 cup of peanut butter and also the chocolate chips. I think it coats better using more, I also add 1tsp of vanilla to the chocolate and peanut butter. Oh and the most important thing of all is, use a microwave safe bowl, heat chocolate chips in microwave for 2 minutes, stir and add peanut butter, this is way faster and less clean-up.
Mmmm delicious!!! So addicting, I can't stop eating them! My Mom used to make this all the time. The one thing I'd say is that 1 cup of chips is defffinatly not enough for 9 cups of cereal. I used two cups of chips. I probably should have increased the peanut butter as well, as it didn't have a very strong taste of PB. WILL be making this again.
made a few batches of this last xmas and stored them in fancy jars, with attached recipe. My guests loved it!
This is really yummy! I like this particular recipe because it does not call for butter/margarine. I started out making a 1/2 recipe, because I only had a scant 1/2 cup of chocolate chips in the pantry. I ended up adding more cereal (probably about 5.5 or 6 cups total) and still had good coverage. I also only used about 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and that was enough to keep it from being sticky and to add a little sugary flavor. So, I was able to use 1/2 the peanut butter/chocolate mixture and less than 1/2 the powdered sugar while using MORE than 1/2 the cereal, and still got a good result. As treats go, I feel like this is a relatively good choice as it has the nutrients of the cereal and protein of the peanut butter (I used all natural pb). Next time maybe I'll try it with the whole wheat Chex and make it even better "health"-wise.
Hey, thanks for the recipe! This is such a fun treat so I decided to make some for our familiy's camping trip. My son has a peanut allergy, so I was going to sub Sunbutter for the PB. Well I found myself at our small town's tiny grocery store staring at the nonexistant options for PB alternatives. My only choice was a jar of $13 almond butter or $4 Nutella. I grabbed the Nutella. It made a great Puppy Chow! Very chocolately but still a hint of nutty flavor. I have a large family so used the whole 13 oz jar of nutella, almost a whole package of chocolate chips (I just reserved a handful or two of chocolate chips to throw into energy bars I'm making) and a whole box of rice chex (~13 oz). I did end up using more powdered sugar too since I wanted each piece thoroughly coated to keep little fingers from getting sticky as much as possible. Just wanted to add the nutella option in case anyone needs a PB alternative or would like it more chocolately! Yum!
Good stuff. Like other reviewers, we used more chocolate than called for, a little butter and did it all the simple way...in the microwave! My daughter loved making this, esspecially shaking it all up. It's too sweet for my tastes but my family enjoyed it. My boyfriend plans to take some to work tomorrow.
I've tried many variations of this recipe, and this one is near the bottom of my list. Recipes with butter taste better.
Very good and the chocolate wasn't too overbearing.
i give this rercipe a 10.0
Classic! I followed others advice, and cut it down to 8 cups of cereal and add 1/4 cup of butter. Yum!!!
I make this every Christmas it's a huge hit and everyone loves it. I do make it a little easier. Put the chocolate and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl, microwave for 1 minute and then every 1o seconds until melted. Then pour cereal bowl and stir until well coated. Pour cereal mixture into a large Renynolds bag with powdered sugar and turn until once again well coated. Pour Puppy Chow out onto a sided baking sheet and let cool for 10 minutes before putting storing. I put mine in mason jars or little cute cello bags to give as gifts.
Lots of people love it, and I prefer to use milk chocolate chips rather than semi sweet. . . Also, if you don't like it to be too sweet, then use the crispix cereal, since its cereal squares are larger and lessen the sweetness of one square...
Healthier version. Use fiber one or fiber now cereal and shredded wheat. Use additional morsels and add a few tablespoons of cocoa. This will provide fiber to your yummy naughty dessert.
I was out of chocolate and really wanted to make this for my son's 6 hour road trip, so I substituted butterscotch chips and it just may become a favorite of ours! I also took suggestions from others of adding 1/4 c butter and 2 t. vanilla. LOVED the idea of plastic wrap covering my measuring cup before the peanut butter, which made me think to use cooking spray on first my spoon before measuring the peanut butter and then on my hands to mix the cooked mixture into the cereal easier than a spoon! I also loved the idea of shaking it in paperbag vs plastic!
YOU MUST LIKE NUTS OR PEANUT BUTTER or you will not like this. Peanut taste is strong. Although this recipe was very easy to make ...no one ate this...it really does look like puppy chow so I had to beg people to try it and the response was it's ok. A couple people did ask for milk to eat it as cereal!
Yummy! I use a large brown grocery bag to help coat it with powder sugar. Just dump in the chocolate coated cereal, pour the powder sugar on top, roll the top down and shake.
Can substitute Sunbutter for the peanut butter and the taste is great! I also used 3 T. butter and a little vanilla...just to to see how it turned out. I loved it! As other reviewers said...decrease your cereal amount a little and you'll be set.
Simple, but delicious!
Used some of the suggestions from the others and added some more chocolate chips and a tad more peanut butter too!!! Then, I also cooled the chow in the refrigerator for about 5-7 minutes before coating with powdered sugar. Very good, quick, easy delicious dessert. Thank You!!!
I made this tday. It is SO easy! i made the first batch on the stove...2nd batch I threw everything (except cereal and sugar) in microwave for 2 mins. on high. VERY YUMMY
I lost my recipe and couldn't remember exactly what was in it so was looking for a place to start. This recipe is close but it really needs a stick of butter and about a tsp of vanilla to give it that little extra something. I also used the whole 12oz bag of chips I don't think it would have came close to covering them if I hadn't but thank you for pointing me in the right direction! I would have been in SO much trouble if the holidays passed and I didn't make it LOL!
This was ok---nothing like I expected considering all the rave reviews, but it is good. I made this and the White Chocolate Gorp (submitted by Ruth Crickmer) for our friends that come over after church on Sundays to play card/board games, and we all prefered the White Chocolate one over this. I used freezer bags and used more confectioners sugar to cover. I most likely wont be making this again.
Good recipe, but you need to add margarine or butter to help make the choc. the right texture. I don't know how you would get it to cover the rice cereal without it. Anyway, this was so good! Very addictive!
This was great! The recipe I use calls for 1/4 cup margarine and 1/4 tsp. vanilla added when melting the chocolate. Adding the margarine makes it easier to spread, and the vanilla adds a nice touch. Thanks for the recipe!
Very easy snack and the kids really like it. It's quick, easy and good, but really not a 5 star snack. Try it though, you will enjoy it :)
This is so addictive! To make this even easier, I melt the peanut butter and chocolate with 1/4 c. butter (I know the recipe doesn't call for it, but I find that the mixture coats better with the butter) in the microwave for a minute, stir, and microwave an additional 20-30 seconds or until smooth. Also, I've found that using 8 cups cereal ensures that all of the pieces are coated in peanut-butter chocolately goodness.
I made this recipe exactly as directed and it was great. No need to change anything; this is a great recipe for puppy chow.
Very yummy, but I would make it 1 cup peanut butter. It doesn't have a lot of peanut butter-y taste and I would prefer more!
very simple and easy to make
Although I like all of the ingredients in this, I didn't care for the end result, sorry.
I have eaten this since I was a kid. Im an adult now and still think its super tasty. Its so easy and fun to make. Its great for road trips too.
This was my first go-round with this recipe and it's really good. I need to clean the entire kitchen because it is slightly messy to make(at least the first time!!) Next time I will microwave the chocolate and peanut butter, add a little butter and vanilla and I will mix all together in a MUCH larger bowl. I also like the suggestion of one use that you coat with powdered sugar in a large paper bag. I mixed forever on a cookie sheet (about to go clean that area of the kitchen!!) All I can in the end is that my 4 year old says it's AWESOME, that all the flavors he can taste in it are GOOD ones, and he just told his 2 year old brother that he HAS to come taste the AWESOME stuff that Mommy just made. THAT makes the mess worth it!!!!!
Excellent recipe! Thanks!
Yummy, my daughter & niece made this and it is tasty! Sweet, but tasty.
Terrific Recipe....but I didn't have any Chex cereal so used Mini Wheats. Fabulous recipe now! It gives the snack more body and something to sink your teeth into!
I like this recipe because it doesn't have the butter that all the other ones seem to have. I use Crispix, a whole bag of choc. chips, and melt it in the microwave. The hardest part about the recipe is remembering not to inhale when throwing a handful of the puppy chow into your mouth. I'm always coughing on the powdered sugar!
I don't usually use a recipe for making puppy chow but I was looking at this one's previous reviews and liked the idea of adding some butter to the chocolate...it really made the puppy chow rich and extra delicious. I served it at a party a couple weeks ago and it was gone fast. I really can't stay out of it myself! I will make again this week for dinner party and a meeting. Thanks for the tip.
I added tiny pretzels!!! just sinful!
I have a recipe similar to this but I think mine is 10 times better!!! It is: 1 cup SEMI-sweet Choc Chips, 1/2 C peanut butter, 1/4 C butter, 2-1/2 C PWD Sugar, and 6 C Crispex or Corn/Rice Cereal. Try this! Trust me, you'll LOVE IT!
Yummy! WE loved this treat. I added a 1/2 cup of butter to the chocolate mix. I don't think I let the chocolate set enough when i mixed it with the cereal because when I did the confectioner's sugar, it blended with the chocolate. It made quite a unique coating. Loved it all the same. Thanks.
I've been making this recipe for years. My kids love it and always request it for parties! We usually use Crispix cereal in ours.
Great Recipe. Based on another users complaint that it was too peanutty, I made the recipe through step 2, then divided the coated ceareal between two bags. I added half of the powdered sugar to each bag, then added about a half a cup of cocoa powder into one. Three of us loved it without the cocoa, and the other three (the non-peanut butter lovers) loved it with the cocoa.
YUMMMMMMY x10! I used 8 cups of cereal, 1 tsp. vanilla extract and 1/4 cup of butter and reduced fat peanut butter. I let it the mixture cool in the fridge a little before mixing it with the sugar.. I brought it to a party and it was a HUGE hit!
I have made a version like this for years but I use Golden Grahams instead and add raisins and peanuts. My son cannot have gluten so I make a version using the Honey Chex cereal and he loves it.
I always use crispix for this and its one of our favorite 'holiday' treats. I also refrigerate it, it's great chilled!
this was good. i scaled down the servings, but next time i wont because the kids really liked it. it was a nice quick easy snack when your looking for something sweet.
I love puppy chow as do my grand children so I needed to make a larger batch, which I did. I took a 14 oz box of chex cereal, I melted 1 cup of peanut butter and 2 cups of chocolate chips in microwave at 30 sec intervals stirring each time poured on to chex mixed it all together and used about 11/2 cups of confectioner sugar. Turned out great was gone in the same day. Thank you for the recipe :)
I found out if you use Crispx cereal instead of chex cereal, the peanut butter/chocolate mix gets into the cereal cavity better and taster great.
mmm so good! I used a full bag 11.5 oz bag of milk chocolate chips and 3/4 c peanut butter, keeping the amt. of cereal the same. Completely coated each piece, tastes awesome!
This is such a good snack. I love it! Thanks :-)
Easy and taste great. No changes needed, great just the way it is.
My kids ask for this atleast once a month! I make mine with butter, and a little vanilla though. It is SO ADDDICTIVE! I only wish it weren't so unhealthy! It probably wouldn't taste so good if it were! LOl Oh, well. You only live once!
tasted good, but didnt look that appealing (maybe because it's called puppy chow?) probably wont make again.
Very good! But I also found that there wasn't enough chocolate to coat 9 cups of the cereal, I used 6-7 cups before it ran out.
We also add peanuts to this recipe.
Yum, Yum, Yum. This is one of those things that you just can't stop eating. Everyone loves it and it's pretty easy to make. What's not to love?!
Fun activity with my 4yr old grandson. Used a paper bag instead of the plastic, grandson shook the sack to get all the chacolate-coated cereal coated with the powdered sugar. Picky little eater loved it!
I used cinnamon flavored Chex and left out the peanut butter: delicious!!!
I include this in my Christmas goodies and everyone loves it!
Don't forget the stick of butter. So melt the butter in the pan, add the chocolate, then the pb. I also prefer to use a brown paper bag since I guess I once got too rowdie and happened to get holes in the plastic bag that made the powder sugar go everywhere. For the moment it made a good laugh with the friends :]
I followed this recipe as written. It turned out excellent.
This is additicting. I had to make this for a spot on a morning show for AllRecipes. So easy. I realized it was the recipe my daughter used to make when she was 15-16 all the time. Fun stuff!
