The Best Christmas Puppy Chow Recipe

The Best Christmas Puppy Chow Recipe // Includes a few unique ingredients // by Destinee Stark

I’ve been making various types of Christmas Puppy Chow for years, and I don’t typically eat it because I don’t like chocolate. I wanted to create something that I could enjoy too and I have finally figured out the right recipe to make my ideal Christmas Puppy Chow!

The secret to my recipe is using part Cinnamon Chex over just plain, and white chocolate over milk chocolate. All of the recipes I could find only used milk chocolate. Also, beware that the sauce created when melting the peanut butter, white chocolate, and butter together is insanely good! I literally licked the bowl afterwards. Haha! It would go so well warm and melty on top of ice cream! I kind of want to try just spreading it out on a baking sheet and chilling it until hard and eating it that way. It’s seriously so delicious!
