What can you serve to drop-in guests during the holidays, to carolers on your doorstep, to your neighbours, on your dessert buffet, or at your church potluck that everyone, and I mean everyone devours? Puppy chow, that’s what!

This recipe is so easy to whip up that even non-cooks find it simple to make. It’s called puppy chow because it is in the shape of bite-size nuggets, and it appeals to the child-like playful puppiness in all of us at this festive time of the year.

Not only is puppy chow easy to make, but it stores well and stays fresh for the duration of the holidays. It can be served in a large bowl or in cupcake liners as individual servings. Puppy chow also makes a great gift for that special teacher or choir director packaged up creatively in mason jars or other gift boxes readily available at this time of year. I’m glad we save puppy chow for once a year because if I had it around all the time, I wouldn’t be able to resist the temptation! I especially like it since I follow a strict gluten-free diet and this particular cereal fits my needs.

In a saucepan, melt and stir till smooth peanut butter and chocolate. When combined and melted. remove the mixture from the heat and slowly add in the cereal until well coated. Place your powdered sugar in a large plastic bag. Add the coated cereal to the sugar in the bag and shake well till the sugar coats all the pieces. Store in an airtight container.
