LOVE IT!!!! I've been making puppy chow on a fairly regular basis for longer than i'd like to admit:) A few tricks I've learned along the way; 1) instead of using a zip lock back, I put half or more of the powdered sugar in the bottom of a large plastic bowl -one with a lid- pour the chocolate cereal mixture on top and then sprinkle the remaining powdered sugar over that. Put the lid on and shake it up! No need to waste a zip lock bag every time you make it. I usually then store the chow in that same bowl, for the few minutes it lasts. 2) this is more of a preference but often I will put the puppy chow in the fridge for 15-20 minutes after making or before eating. Something about it being slightly cool tastes really good! Also, I think rice chex works best.
- 9 cups Chex cereal (any kind)
