The holidays are the time of year when we look for ways to bring back that magic of Christmas we felt as a kid and share that with those we love. Making homemade edible gifts is a great way to make lasting memories at Christmas time.
One of the treats my family looks forward to is homemade Puppy Chow cereal, and it’s perfect for large batches to serve over the Holidays and to package for Christmas gifts. Here’s what you need:
1 Box cereal crisps such as Crispix
2 cups creamy peanut butter
2 cups milk chocolate chips
2 cups powdered sugar
2 paper grocery bags
Step One: Mix peanut butter and chocolate chips together in large pot and melt over low heat, stirring until smooth.
Step 2: Use a large mixing bowl filled with half of the box of cereal and pour half of the melted peanut butter and chocolate mixture over top. Gently stir together until cereal pieces are completely coated in the chocolate and peanut butter mixture, being careful not to smash the pieces of cereal as you stir.
Step 3: Open one paper bag and cover bottom with 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Pour coated cereal mixture into the bag sprinkle another 1/2 cup of powdered sugar over the top of the mixture. Close top of the grocery bag together and roll over several times. Shake sugar and cereal mixture together until the cereal is completely coated in the powdered sugar.
Step 4: Pour the powder sugar coated cereal into a strainer and shake until the extra or loose powdered sugar has been removed.
Step 5: Pour Puppy Chow cereal treats into your favorite glass jar container and decorate with Holiday or festive accents.
There are many types of jars you can use such as mason jars or airtight jars with lids like the ones here.
