This take on Puppy Chow is beyond good. Crunchy rice cereal is coated in white chocolate and a mixture of dry cake mix, powdered sugar, and of course sprinkles! Use festive sprinkles for a holiday twist.


How to make Puppy Chow

If you’ve never made puppy chow before, you’ll find that the process is simple but a little out of the ordinary!

First, make a melty peanut butter chocolate coating (in this recipe, we’re using white chocolate).

Next, coat your rice cereal in the chocolate coating. We’re also adding in some sprinkles at this step!

Finally, add powdered sugar to a large resealable plastic bag (for this recipe, we’re using a mixture of powdered sugar and dry cake mix). Add your cereal to the bag, zip it tight, and shake! The cereal will become coated in the powdered sugar. That’s all! You now have an absolutely delicious chocolatey cereal treat.
