A FUN VALENTINE’S DAY INSPIRED PUPPY CHOW RECIPE

I am finally sharing a delicious Muddy Buddy, a.k.a “Puppy Chow” (or ‘White Trash’ as my Mom used to call it back in the day) recipe on the The Country Cook.

CAN I SWITCH THIS UP FOR DIFFERENT HOLIDAYS?

  • Of course! This particular recipe is going to use peanut butter and white chocolate before we coat the Chex in powdered sugar. However, you could go with the classic semi-sweet chocolate chips if you like. This is one of my favorite combos of flavor though.
  • What you add in is totally up to you. I love the Valentine’s Day edition M&M’s as well as pink and red sprinkles and a small handful of mini chocolate chips. I didn’t put a measurement for those because I figured you could throw in as much or as little as you like. But you can do green M&M’s and sprinkles for Saint Patrick’s Day, etc.

  1. Just made this to send to my daughter in college for Valentine’s Day. It’s tastes delicious but I did need to add at least 2 more cups of cereal. Two cups of cereal was not enough. Thank you so
    Much for the recipe.

  2. This looks awesome. What kind of Chex did you use, rice, wheat, corn? Also 2 cups doesn’t sound like a lot of cereal for all that coating???

    1. Wow! All of the recipes look delicious! Thank you Brandi for all the wonderful recipes! Hope you and everyone at your home have a wonderful Valentines Day!!????
