Butterscotch Puppy Chow

"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."

Ready In:




  • Place the powdered sugar into a 1 gallon resealable plastic bag.
  • In a large microwave safe bowl melt the butterscotch chips for 1 minute.
  • Stir and heat for 30 seconds longer or until melted when stirred.
  • Stir in the peanut butter.
  • 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.
  • 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. :-)
  • 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.

    Awesome. I really wish I hadn't found this recipe! Made as directed, except using Cascadian Farms multigrain squares. Didn't miss the butter, recipe worked well as is. This makes a smaller batch than traditional Puppy Chow so we gobbled it down in no time. I saw a tip on another recipe to use a large tupperware bowl to mix the powdered sugar and coated cereal. A couple of shakes did the trick. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    My family loves the normal version of puppy chow, so had to try this version. This is very tasty, although sweeter to me, but addicting all the same!!! I made 1/4 of the amount as a trial to see how my kids like this version. The only change I made was to add some butter to the chips and peanut butter as it was very dry and hard for the chips to melt. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Newest Tag Game.


<p>I am a stay at home mom with&nbsp;5 wonderful children. When I have time I love to scrapbook and journal. I also crochet and do cross-stitch and enjoy reading my Bible. Sometimes I am all into trying new things then other times I only want old standbys. I like to get veggies into my picky kids by sneaking them in where they were not expecting them. I've learned that its improtant to try new things 2 or 3 times before you can really consider it rejected. Sometimes the second time you offer it to them they will scarf it down, when the first time they barely got down the mandatory taste bite. Go figure.</p> 8725182"
