Puppy Chow

My brother-in-law, Kenny, was sick this past weekend. If there’s one thing I know about Kenny, besides the fact that he likes to purposely push my buttons, it’s that the lad loves puppy chow. Puppy chow, or sometimes called Muddy Buddies (?), is a chocolate and peanut butter Chex mix delight. It takes less than 15 minutes to throw together and it’s always a hit.

Kenny came over for dinner (and a round of Modern Warfare with Robert) and I sent him home with a bag of this mix. He seems to be on the mend and I’m chalking it up to the old puppy chow cure. 😉 Love ya, Ken!

Yield: 18 servings


  • 9 cups Corn Chex cereal
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


Pour the Corn Chex cereal into a large bowl. Set aside. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter, stirring after every 30 seconds until smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour over the cereal and gently stir until all the cereal pieces have been coated.

Transfer the cereal mixture to a large food storage plastic bag. Carefully pour the powdered sugar in the bag. Seal the bag. Shake until all the pieces are covered.

  2. I just made two batches of this for a bake sale tomorrow..and totally forgot the vanilla!! Lol oh well….it still tastes yummy 🙂 🙂

  3. I had this last week at a picnic. I made this recipe and it did not taste the same at all? By mistake I added the vanilla in while melting the chocolate, peanut butter and butter. Also, I used generic products. Could this be why? P.S. I am not a very good cook but they tasted so good I had to give it a try!

    • Hi Mary- it’s best to add the vanilla in at the end, but it shouldn’t make that big of a difference. I am guessing using generic chocolate chips may have been your problem. The generic version usually has a lower cocoa content and higher fat, which makes a poorer tasting product. Hope this helps!
