"Very popular with kids, teens and adults alike. I like how I only have to buy one box of cereal for this recipe compared to the 2 types some call for."

Servings Per Recipe: 10
"Great recipe. Easy to make. Used recipe for a tailgate party and had enough to bring to work. There will be no left overs for this recipe!!"
"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."
"I've tried many different puppy chow"
"i tried this at a church function and it was the most delicious thing i had ever tried. My friend would bring me some whenever she made it and i am so happy to have the recipe. thanks :)"
"couldn't find this recipe in my old cookbooks, this one is just the same! thanks!!"
"Sweet but awesome."
"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."
"I loved this as a kid and thaks to this recipe I know I still do! Thank You"
"my children love it."
"I love this stuff, my mom used to make it and I haven't made it in forever. Thanks for reminding me how great this stuff is!"
