Chocolate Raspberry Puppy Chow


I may be the only person to have never made muddy buddies
 a.k.a. puppy chow
{very fitting at my house}

Sure they all look good,
but I definitely prefer my snacks
salty to sweet.
{hello fries}

Dessert is completely different,
{and I like my dessert, maybe a little too much}

but I don’t really see puppy chow as dessert
it is definitely snack food.

But today, I was strolling down the cereal aisle,
and then the Valentine’s day aisle,
and this puppy chow is what happened next.

Stella almost put milk on it:)
“it’s cereal mom”
Charlie proclaimed it the
“best thing ever”
and I may  now be a sweet snacker
{good thing Ian got me a treadmill}


Chocolate Raspberry Puppy Chow
6 cups of rice chex cereal
1 package of Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Squares {chopped}
2 tbsp butter
1 – 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
handful {or more} of raspberry m&m candies

melt the chocolates and the butter
{over medium heat – stir until melted}
pour over the cereal, and stir until thoroughly combined
in a large ziploc bag, toss the cereal with the powdered sugar
allow to dry/cool on a baking sheet
toss with the m&ms

easy and addicting,
not exactly the best combo

a few “extra” sweet snacks
