half a cup of peanut butter

½ teaspoon of vanilla

¼ a cup of butter

1 cup of chocolate chips

9 cups of Crispix cereal

And 3 cups of powdered sugar


  • First of all, you need to mix butter, chocolate chips and peanut butter in a bowl (make sure the bowl is ok for a microwave).
  • Place the bowl in your microwave and make it 1 minute. When you take it out, stir it properly, maybe even blend it. Add vanilla and stir all the ingredients again.
  • After you do that, put the Crispix cereal you prepared in a big bowl (the bigger the bowl - the better).
  • Next thing you should do is cover the Crispix cereal with the mixture you got: carefully mix all the ingredients, so all the cereal is covered in sweet mixture.
  • Put the powdered sugar in a big (again - the bigger the better) plastic bag that can be properly closed.
  • Then place your chocolate - peanut butter cereal mixture in the plastic bag, but make sure you leave enough space to shake the puppy chow. If necessary, you can split the mixture in smaller parts.
  • Actively shake each bag so every piece of puppy chow is covered in powder sugar
  • After everything is done and all the pieces are properly covered in powder sugar, put them in a big bowl to serve.
  • Do the same with the rest of your mixture, make sure all pieces are covered in sugar and are nice and white.
  • After that consider it ready to serve. Your children will absolutely love it, so will you!


  • This recipe of puppy chow contains chocolate, so you can't give it to your dog or your puppy!
  • If your children are allergic to chocolate, don't give it to them, it will be better if you don't use the chocolate at all.
  • Don't forget to make sure your mixture is stirred thoroughly before you add cereal.
  • Don't start making a new portion before you make sure the first one tastes good and has a nice texture.
  • Don't forget to make sure you have enough ingredients before you start making the puppy chow.
  • Don't let your kids eat too much puppy chow, as it contains a lot of sugar, plus it is rather greasy - eating a lot of it can't be good.
  • Don't use products that are not fresh: taste all the ingredients before you start cooking.
  • Don't be afraid to experiment
  • Don't put too much sugar if the type of cereal you chose is too sweet.
