Recipe: A Yummy Christmas Treat

One of the treats like I love to make (and eat) at Christmas is Puppy Chow (aka "trash" by the Lewis clan). I can inhale it by the handful, and pretty much never get sick of it! And bonus, if you haven't make it before (where have you been?), it is so easy.



  • 9 cups of any flavor Chex cereal (or combine multiple flavors)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


  • In a large bowl, pour and set aside the 9 cups of cereal.
  • In a microwavable bowl, combine peanut butter, chocolate chips, and butter and microwave on high, uncovered, for 1 minute.
  • Remove the bowl from the microwave and stir. If needed, melt for another 30 seconds and stir again. The mixture should be smooth.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Pour the mixture over the cereal and (carefully!) stir until all of the cereal is coated. I recommend using a flat, rubber spatula and gently folding the cereal until covered. Try not to crush the pieces!
  • Pour half of the coated cereal in a resealable gallon sized bag, and the other half in another bag. 
  • Add the powdered sugar into the bags (half in one and half in the other), and seal well! 
  • Here comes the fun part - shake, shake, shake the bags!

  • Once it's all coated, you're done! Grab a handful (try not to cover face and clothes in powdered sugar) and enjoy!!
