Puppy Chow

Thyme Together has issued a challenge. Read the challenge here.

Hi I'm Matthew. I like to spend at least 6-9 hours watching football a weekend. I'm a huge fan of the sport, and enjoy watching Texas A&M (where my parents went college), any ranked SEC team (the strongest college football conference in the country), and both the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans (the 2 Texas NFL teams). And to make watching the greatest sport ever even greater is eating Puppy Chow, a snack almost as addicting as it is sweet. Here is the recipe:

Puppy Chow (aka Chex Muddy Buddies)
9 cups of your favorite Chex (Corn, Rice, and/or Wheat)
1 cup chocolate chips
½ cup peanut butter
¼ cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 ½ cups powdered sugar

Measure cereal into a large bowl and set aside.
Combine chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter in 1-quart microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high 1 to 1 ½ minutes or until smooth, stirring after 1 minute. Stir in vanilla.
Pour chocolate mixture over cereal, stirring until all pieces are evenly coated. Pour cereal mixture into large resealable plastic bag with powdered sugar. Seal securely. Shake until all pieces are well coated.
Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container.


  1. wow, Matthew! That sounds yummy! I've eaten this before and loved it but haven't made it yet. I will now! Thanks!

  2. Great job on your post, Matthew. I think you REALLY love football. Is football your middle name? We are definitely going to make that when you come to watch football here.
