We’ve all had puppy chow before (I hope). I’m sure we’ve all also had those weak moments when we need dessert, but don’t have the ingredients, right? Maybe?
Luckily, weak moments lead to delicious dessert creations. We didn’t have any Chex in the house, so racked my brain for a solution. I figured that chocolate and peanut butter tastes good with anything, so I just needed a vehicle for it. That’s when I decided to use popcorn.
I was worried the popcorn would shrivel up when I poured the peanut butter/chocolate mixture over it, but it didn’t! I didn’t think it was quite as good as regular puppy chow, but it’s definitely good…the only thing missing was the crunch from the cereal. Maybe next time I’ll make it with caramel corn.
- 9 cups popped popcorn
- ½ cup peanut butter
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1½ cups powdered sugar
- In a large saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate; add peanut butter and mix until smooth.
- Remove from heat, add popcorn and stir until coated.
- Pour powdered sugar into large plastic bag, add coated cereal and shake until well coated. Store in an airtight container.
