Puppy Chow

The naturally Gluten Free snack.

If you read the labels, that is.

Memorial Day weekend can’t come and go without making a batch. We first had this back in the 90s when a fellow Girl Scout brought it, and copies of her recipe, as her “snack to share” for a winter camping trip. We have been hooked ever since. Can’t go camping without it. And because we always went camping over Memorial Day weekend… You get the drift.

Just so you know, you don’t have to be a camper to love Puppy Chow.

Puppy Chow

20 oz Chex, rice or corn will make it gluten-free

12oz pkg Nestle semi sweet chocolate chips, for other brands read the label for hidden gluten

1 c peanut butter

1 stick butter

1 pound powdered sugar

Melt butter, peanut butter and chocolate chips in the microwave. Stirring every minute until all is melted.

In a really big bowl pour the chocolate mixture over the cereal.

Then in another really large container you will toss the chocolate coated cereal in the powdered sugar until it is evenly coated. This was traditionally done in a clean trash bag. Not sure that’s really a healthy idea….  A disposable turkey roasting pan is about the right size to save your counters and floors from the mess.

Lay it out to dry on the countertops. You can try putting it on waxed paper or foil, but it seems to make a big mess no matter how you do it. Did I say this was messy?

It makes a lot. So there is always plenty to share!

    I actually picked up some of this at an Amish store while we were on a recent trip. Very yummy. I figured out it was pretty easy (though messy) to make when I got back home!


Talk to me people. I get tired of talking to myself!
