I only let myself make this once a year because I will eat it all. I melt the stuff in the microwave in a big plastic bowl and then mix in the cereal and then dump the powdered sugar on top. I then seal the lid really good and shake and roll the bowl around. It works really well to mix in the powdered sugar. This is awesome addicting stuff but a little messy. Enjoy! Merry Christmas.

This recipe uses double the coating ingredients of most of the other recipes online, and just slightly more cereal. A 12.8 oz. box of rice chex has 13 cups. Recipes with 1/2c peanut butter and 1 c chocolate chips call for 9-10 cups of cereal. I didn't measure the cereal before making the recipe, assuming it would be doubled too, 18-20 cups, and I ended up with not enough puppy chow. I thought the coating was very thick. Next time I'll use more cereal.

This is a classic snack mix and tastes great. Please be aware that despite the title and the suggestion to serve in a doggie dish, this is a snack meant only for people, not pets (chocolate is toxic to dogs). I use several flavors of Chex cereal in this instead of Crispix.
