We eat healthy around here during the week, so when the weekend comes, sometimes I like to surprise my kids with a bit of a sugary snack. I love the reactions I get when I do this, according to my girls I qualify for mom of the year when I make a surprise sugar snack.
When I do take the time to make something less healthy, I want something easy and fun. This puppy chow and kitty chow fit that description. Kids think it is great fun to have 2 different shaped chow with fun names. It is the perfect munching snack, especially for car trips! What I love? It is so good that it gets eaten up right away so when the new week comes we don't have a bunch of tempting puppy & kitty chow laying around!
Puppy & Kitty Chow
1/2 cup butter ( I use Earth Balance)
1 cup peanut butter
12 ounces chocolate chips
1 1b powdered sugar
1/2 box any Chex type cereal (for puppy chow)
1/2 box Kix cereal (for kitty chow)
Mix butter, peanut butter and chocolate chips in a glass bowl. Microwave until melted & stir. Divide in half. Add Chex to one half and Kix to the other. Stir until coated. In 2 brown paper bags, divide powdered sugar. Add coated Chex to one and coated Kix to the other. Shake until cereal is coated.
