Puppy Chow

  • 9 cups Corn or Rice Chex Cereal
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar


  • 1 ½ cups candy corn I made my own mix - Caramel Macchiato candy corn,regular candy corn & pumpkins - ½ cup of each
  • 1 ½ cups White Chocolate Candy Corn M&Ms
  • 1 ½ cups Reese's mini peanut butter cups
  • 1 ½ cups pretzels any shape you prefer
  • 1 cup salted peanuts
  • ½ cup mini marshmallows


  • Pour Chex Cereal in a large bowl and set aside.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter together on high for one minute.
  • Stir and return to microwave, microwaving in 30 second increments until melted together and smooth. Stir in vanilla.
  • Pour mixture over the cereal and gently stir to coat. (I used a couple of plastic baggies on my hands to toss the cereal in the mixture so I didn't crush it.)
  • Pour cereal in a large zip lock bag, add in powdered sugar in, seal and shake until evenly coated.
  • Spread cereal out on to wax paper and let cool completely.
  • In a large bowl combine candy corn mixture, Candy Corn M&Ms, mini Reese’s peanut butter cups, pretzels, peanuts and mini marshmallows and add the cereal mixture in and mix together carefully .
  • Store in an air-tight container.
