Butterscotch Puppy Chow

Total Time

This is just my regular Crispix, or similar type of cereal, puppy chow recipe made with butterscotch chips instead of chocolate chips; my SIL suggested it. We ate probably half the batch that evening. After making a bunch of recipes with butterscotch chips, I suggest that you use a good quality chip. I have had trouble melting some of the store brands, although Aldi's brand always seems to work well.


  1. Place the powdered sugar into a 1 gallon resealable plastic bag.
  2. In a large microwave safe bowl melt the butterscotch chips for 1 minute.
  3. Stir and heat for 30 seconds longer or until melted when stirred.
  4. Stir in the peanut butter.
  5. Stir in the cereal and mix until evenly coated; I use a big spoonula for this. Pour the cereal mixture into the sugar filled bag and gently toss the mixture to coat it evenly.
  6. It says it needs to be stored in the refrigerator but I never have and mine has never stayed around longer than a day or two anyway. :-)
  7. I am often asked to bring the chocolate version of this to my sister's house, I think next time I'll take a batch of each and see how it goes.

Talk about addictive! It does keep well, overnight, if you put it away in a ziplock bag. but it does make for a really great snack!

I make this a lot but use chocolate chips instead. The butterscotch was ok but I think I like the chocolate version better. Made for Please Review My Recipe.

It is a bit sweeter than normal puppy chow. Very nice change from the normal. I think it would like to try mixing it with the regular so some are darker and some are lighter, for more a more interesting visual.
