Bowl of Peanut Butter Puppy Chow - Rice cereal coated in chocolate and peanut butter and dusted in powdered sugar then mixed with peanut butter M&Ms for a dessert that both children and adults will love.



Sweet and chocolatey, this peanut butter puppy chow is the easy snack/dessert that both children and adults will love.



12-ounce bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

½ cup smooth peanut butter

12-ounce box Chex cereal (I used Rice Chex)

1 cup peanut butter M&Ms

1 pound box powdered sugar


In a medium glass, microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips and peanut butter together in the microwave on low power in 30-second increments, stirring after each increment.

In a large bowl, add the cereal.

When the chocolate mixture is melted, pour over the cereal in the bowl.  Toss gently to coat.

Add the mixture to a brown paper grocery bag.

Dump the powdered sugar into the bag.

Fold the top of the bag over on itself and shake vigorously until the cereal breaks apart into individual pieces and everything is heavily coated in powdered sugar.

Add the M&Ms and shake briefly to combine.

Pour into a serving bowl.
