Cinnamon Puppy Chow

A delicious twist on a Holiday Classic……because sometimes, I amaze myself with my Ah-ha! Grocery Store Moments.

  Ok, ok, fine.  

  I am sure, someone, somewhere, has made this into a recipe…

  BUT, I was standing in the cereal aisle getting ready to buy some regular Chex for Puppy Chow when I saw the Cinnamon Chex.  I was like HMMMM, Chocolate and cinnamon are amazing together, I think I will sneak some into this years Puppy Chow.

  Needless to say, Dale went crazy.  “What is in this? Something is different, but it’s SO good!”

Thankyou, thankyouverymuch.

Cinnamon Puppy Chow txt

  • 2 boxes Chex Cereal: 13 Oz Cinnamon Chex & 16 Oz Corn Chex {18 Cups Total}
  • 2 cups Chocolate Chips  {What about some cinnamon chips?!?!?! I think so!}
  • 1 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 cup Butter
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 3 cups Powdered Sugar

On the stove top, melt butter, peanut butter and chocolate chips together at low heat. Remove from heat and add vanilla.
Working with 9 cups of cereal at a time in a large bowl, pour half the chocolate peanut butter mix over your Chex and carefully stir.

Transfer to 2 gallon zip-lock bags. Add the remaining cereal to your bowl and the rest of the melted chocolate peanut butter mixture. Stir carefully then transfer to 2 more gallon zip-lock bags. Divide 3 cups of powdered sugar between all 4 bags and shake away.

Store all together in one large Tupperware making sure to stir the coated cinnamon chex in to the regular ones very well.

OH MY Cinnamon-y Deliciousness!!!!!
