Just made this in matter of minutes to take to work tomorrow for our Christmas snack day. Just as I remembered as a child. YUMMY- Thanks for posting it.
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.
Umm...yum! I have always loved these treats and finally decided to look it up and make it for myself. I used Corn Chex and scaled back on the butter just a little. Excellent! As other reviewers have mentioned, THIS IS MESSY, but worth it!
Just as I remember it from years ago! The changes I made were to use one 10oz bag of Enjoy Life chocolate chips, GFCF butter substitute, 1/2 peanut butter and 1/2 sunflower seed butter, and a box of Rice Chex. This made the recipe gluten and casein free. I used regular store-bought confectioners' sugar but if you are avoiding corn, you will of course want to make your own powdered sugar. AWESOME! Thanks for posting! (Beware: This can get very messy!)
Yes! This is the exact recipe I use- great stuff!
I've been eating this stuff for years and finally had to look up the recipe. Best snack ever! Now I can make it and stop describing it to the unlucky few who've never tasted it.
How can you go wrong with puppy chow? I made these for DD slumber party and they ate them down in jiffy. Thank you for posting.
Made it for a party (to watch Puppy Bowl V on Animal Planet) and my guests loved it. Brought the left overs to work and it went fast as well. I used organic almond butter instead of peanut butter, and peanut butter chips. I think it would be DaBomb is mixed with pecans or other tree nuts as well. Have fun experimenting. I used a generic rice chex. This is messy, messy, messy -- but worth the trouble, in my book. My suggested use for the leftover powdered sugar? Sift out cereal bits, and add to your favorite drinking chocolate mix, with a dollop of cinnamon, for Mexican Hot Cocoa.
If I could, I would give this 10 stars! This stuff is evil...once you start eating, you can't stop. I use rice chex instead of crispix. I also like to add peanuts to it. Super yummy!
This is a great 'IDEA'. However, it makes quite a mess. I used Crispix cereal which ended up crumbling apart. Perhaps we'll try this again...but we'll use a different cereal like Chex. Thanks for sharing. But I think I'll stick to baking cookies for my children instead of covering my kitchen & dog in powdered sugar. lol Many Blessings.
