PB n' J Puppy Chow


Since I am limpy status at the moment with a bummed ankle, I didn't get around to making the time consuming chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake that I wanted too. So, I settled for this delicious Puppy Chow. I love this stuff, in a seriously border line obsessive way. As I sit here, stuffing my face with it as I watch The Notebook (one of my favorites), I keep asking myself why I ever decided to do this to myself. Puppy Chow is like the crack of all sweets. It is so easy to make, and so simple to eat. I just keep reaching for the bag and eating it by the handful. I can feel my backside expanding as I type this...looks like fat pants tomorrow.

I took the Puppy Chow recipe from Picky Palate and tweaked it a little. I am not big on white chocolate, so I used the good semi-sweet stuff instead. Peanut butter and jelly is one of life's greatest gifts - mixing it in with Puppy Chow only makes it that much better. Enjoy :)


Peanut Butter n' Jelly Puppy Chow
Adapted from Picky Palate

9 Cups Honey Nut Chex (or any chex variety you like)
3/4 Cup chopped white chocolate or white chocolate chips
1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 Cup strawberry jam
2 Tablespoons butter
2 Cups powdered sugar


Place chex cereal in a large mixing bowl.  Place chocolate, peanut butter, jam and butter into a microwavable safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute or until melted.  Stir then pour into bowl of cereal.  Mix well then divide mixture into 2 large ziplock bags.  Pour in 1 Cup powdered sugar into each ziplock.  Close bags and shake until cereal is coated.  Pour into a large bowl and serve.

This recipe makes a lot. You can always freeze a bag if you'd like!

    1. Yes! Can you PLEASE come get some!? I can't seem to stop eating it. I had this genius idea to freeze it, thinking I'd stop stuffing my face. Well, the fiance ate it frozen, convinced me to do the same - and if it is possible, I love it even more that way! Puppy Chow is like crack to me, lol.
