Puppy Bowl Puppy Chow by Not Your Momma's Cookie

So, there’s this kind of important event happening this weekend. Here are some clues:

  • It’s happening on Sunday.
  • It’s televised.
  • There is a half-time show – cheerleaders too!
  • It’s called the “_______ Bowl”

Give up?

It’s the Puppy Bowl!

And, this year, hedgehog cheerleaders!

Puppy Bowl

It will be the only “sporting” event that my husband and I will be watching on Sunday. Sorry sports fans – it’s not our scene.

To celebrate, I made puppy chow for the first time. I made it extra peanut-buttery by adding Reese’s cereal. I also added some homemade chocolate bones (I made them by piping chocolate onto parchment paper – check out myย royal icing transfers tutorialย for basic instructions, just use chocolate instead!)

Get ready for “Puppy Bowl Sunday” with this puppy chow recipe with a peanut butter kick!
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

  • 2 cups Reese’s cereal
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 cups peanuts, optional
  • Chocolate footballs and dog bones, optional
Instructions
  1. Place Chex cereal and Reese’s cereal in a very large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Put powdered sugar in a large plastic bag. Set aside.
  3. Microwave semi-sweet chips, peanut butter, and butter together for 1 minute at 70% power. Microwave for 15 second intervals until mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla.
  4. Pour chocolate mixture over cereal. Stir gently to coat.
  5. Scoop cereal into plastic bag with powdered sugar. Shake until all pieces are coated. Feel free to add more powdered sugar for a “whiter” look.
