I made this puppy chow when Mike and I went camping with his cousins a few weeks ago. A few other people had munchies out so I went to the trailer to grab ours. Mike asked why I was bringing out a snack so close (2 hours) to dinner time? I said I was hungry and others might want some too. I was right and I saw quite a few people munching on this s'mores puppy chow right up 'til dinner time. I also heard comments like, "this is so good!" and "what's in here?" and "what makes this so yummy?" My secret? It's made with love. Just kidding! (Kind of...)
I followed my basic recipe for puppy chow, but I added in broken pieces of graham crackers and mini marshmallows. This version was certainly a hit and Mike and I scraped the bottom of the bowl clean. The sugary pieces at the bottom are the best!
Makes 18-20 1/2 cup servings
You will need:
9 cups Chex cereal
2 sleeves of graham crackers, broken into pieces
2 cups mini dehydrated marshmallows
2 cups (maybe more) powdered sugar
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup peanut butter1 teaspoon vanilla
1. Measure cereal into a large bowl (preferably with a cover). Add graham crackers and marshmallows and set aside.
2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and peanut butter. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir and microwave for another 30 seconds, until mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla.
3. Pour chocolate mixture over cereal mixture and stir to coat thoroughly.
4. Pour about 1 cup of powdered sugar on top of coated cereal. Put the cover on the bowl and shake to coat. Add as much powdered sugar as you need to cover the cereal.
Store in an airtight container.
