"Puppy Chow" or "Muddie Buddies". whichever you prefer to call them, have been a huge hit in our family for years and don't last in our house long. When I stumbled upon this recipe for Peppermint Crunch Puppy Chow from Sally's Baking Addiction, I thought I found heaven!
- 5 cups Rice Chex cereal (We use Crispix instead)
- 10 ounces melting white chocolate OR vanilla flavored Almond Bark (I recommend Bakers White Chocolate Bars)
- 1 cup crushed candy canes
- 1 cup powdered sugar
Pour 5 cups of cereal into a large bowl. Melt white chocolate/almond bark according to the package directions. Pour melted chocolate over cereal, stirring and folding until the cereal is completely covered. Fold in the crushed candy canes
In a large zipped top bag or covered container, add the powdered sugar. Pour the chocolate covered cereal/candy canes into the large bag or container. Seal the bag or container and shake until all the cereal is coated with the powdered mixture.
Discard excess powder and enjoy! You may store at room temperature up to 2 weeks, if it lasts that long, which ours clearly does not!
