This year, me and my roommate, Kristen, made tons of baked goods together to give to our boyfriends on Valentine’s Day. Pink Puppy Chow is just one of the many goodies that will be featured in a special Valentine’s post on Spilled Melk. in the near future.
Okay, so there’s actually no difference between traditional puppy chow and “pink” puppy chow, other than that I added the seasonal Valentine’s Day M&M’s. But this little addition makes it the perfect treat to give to all your special someones, and although Valentine’s Day may be over until next year, you can use original M&M’s or forget them altogether for this year-round recipe.
Here is everything that you will need:
Heat one cup of chocolate chips on low until completely melted. (stir frequently to make sure it doesn’t burn!)
Add a half cup of peanut butter to the melted chocolate and mix well.
Carefully pour in a whole box of Chex cereal and combine until fully covered. (I usually use plain Chex, however tried cinnamon for this. I liked it, but if you don’t like cinnamon, I wouldn’t suggest it.)
Pour one and a half cups powdered sugar into a bag, add the chocolate/peanut-butter/Chex mixture and shake vigorously!
Mix in M&M’s and serve!
It can literally take as little as ten minutes to make this addicting snack, and with the help of your friends, even less time to eat. If you’ve never tried it, I would definitely recommend making it right now. Literally right now (go).
