Yummy Puppy Chow Recipe for Kids

I love recipes that are both kid friendly and delicious! This is an all-time favorite with the kids that really looks like dog food! It is also perfect to make when you are reading books about Clifford.

12 oz. box Rice Chex cereal
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup peanut butter
12 oz. pkg. semisweet chocolate chips
2-3 cups powdered sugar


(1) In medium microwave-safe bowl, combine butter, peanut butter and chocolate chips. Microwave on high for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring once during cooking, until mixture is melted and smooth.
(2) Place the cereal in another large bowl, and pour the melted mixture over the cereal. Stir until the cereal is thoroughly coated.
(3) Pour the powdered sugar into a large plastic food bag. Pour the coated cereal into the powdered sugar and shake until it is well covered with the sugar.
(4) Pour the cereal onto wax paper to cool and dry. Store in tightly covered containers at room temperature.

Encourage your child to read the directions independently, follow the steps in order, and measure the ingredients correctly. This is a recipe that your family will certainly enjoy!
