We were headed to a friend's house for a much needed get together. One of Matt's favorite buddies was going to be in town, so it was the perfect excuse. The hosts were smoking a bunch of meats and had a full menu planned. So, I thought it would be fun to bring something people could snack on throughout the night.
Puppy chow was the perfect answer. Everyone loves it and it was plenty easy to throw together after work. I decided it would be fun to switch it up a bit though and toss it in brownie mix rather than powdered sugar. Extra chocolate is always good. I would say it was a hit... I had a clean bowl by the end of the night!
Brownie Batter Puppy Chow
6 cups Chex cereal (I used rice)
1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups brownie mix
- Melt chocolate chips in microwave. Start with 30 seconds, then stir and return to microwave in 15 second intervals being sure to stir between each until the chocolate is smooth.
- Stir in the peanut butter and vanilla until completely combined.
- Fold in cereal until well coated.
- Place in a gallon zip topped bag with the brownie mix and shake until coated. Allow to set up before serving.
