Cherry Mash Puppy Chow

Karla Harkins


I was craving something sweet. I had bought the cereals to make puppy chow a while ago. While I was getting the chocolate chips out I saw the cherry chips I had bought for the Cherry Mash bars I love. So I thought to my myself, HMMMMMM. Why not! Ta Da, Cherry Mash Puppy Chow!
