Oh my goodness! So this all started because my daughter HATES peanut butter. Or at least she thinks does. She used to love Puppy Chow… until she found out that it had peanut butter in it! I did some searching and came up with this yummy recipe from Chef In Training. It was the perfect addition to our little New Year Eve’s party with the kiddos. Why in the world I chose to make this irresistible version of Puppy Chow the very day I weigh in for my new Diet Bet Challenge is beyond me!
7 full size Milky Way Bars (approximately 13-14 ozs. if you are using a different size)
8-9 cups of Chex Cereal
1/2 Cup butter
3/4 Cup powdered sugar (I used at least a cup)
Using low heat, melt that butter…
slowly melt the candy bars….
Pour in the Chex cereal and gently fold until the cereal is covered…
From here I took the 3/4 cup of powdered sugar and sprinkled it on top. Put the lid on the large pot and shake. Hold on tight! The last thing you want is Kitty Chow all over the floor! I opened it up and found it in need of quite a bit more sugar… I just added straight from the bag. Shake until all that caramel-y goodness is covered.
I like to spread it out cool so it doesn’t clump together…
Beware of snitches! So hard to resist when it is warm, chewy and sweet! In our house it’s been dubbed Kitty Chow. Mainly to set it apart from it’s well know cousin Puppy Chow, but also simply because my kids are obsessed with cats!
