puppy chow and a puppy

I got the intense urge to make puppy chow today. So when I got home from work, I made some.
Puppy Chow (not for actual puppies)

1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
1 T vanilla extract
9 cups chex cereal
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar, divided

Place peanut butter, chocolate chips and butter in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in 30 second increments until all are melted. Stir together and add in vanilla extract. Pour over Chex cereal and combine so cereal is coated. Place half of the mixture in a large Ziploc bag with 3/4 cup of powdered sugar. Shake until all are covered. Spread evenly over a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat with second half. Let cool and enjoy!

I also took some lovely glamour shots of Dolly, who unfortunately has some sort of a stomach bug. Yeah, I bet you can guess what she's been doing...
It's a good thing she's so darn adorable.

Also, today felt a lot like Friday. But it's only Thursday. Ugh. Anyone else having one of those days?


  1. So is it or is it not for dogs? Cause I would like to try it haha

  2. Okay, that second picture of Dolly made me laugh so hard, I had to show Kyle. And then we seriously both sat here and laughed for about ten minutes. TEARS streaming down our faces. That is one of my all-time favorite dog pictures ever. I actually want to steal it and make it my screensaver or something. Hilarious.

  3. Ahh puppy chow I haven't had that in forever and now I am having an intense craving for it too!!

  4. Aww, I hope she feels better!!!
    I'd never had puppy chow until my roommate brought some back from home that her grandma had made. IT WAS AMAZING! So, you can send me some of that, k?

  5. Puppy Chow is up there on my list of top five weaknesses in the whole wide world. Love love love.

  6. Omg puppy chow is the best! I haven't made it in forever, but my sister and I used to make it all the time and now I want some...
