We love munching on puppy chow (made with Chex cereal) and poppy chow (made with popcorn). This is even BETTER! Not to mention, very easy to make. It would be a perfect snack to make and take to any parties for this big football game thing that I keep hearing about that is coming up on Sunday :)

How To Make puffy chow

  • 1
    Pour puffed corn into a large bowl. *Puffed corn can be found at most grocery stores in the chip aisle. Get butter flavor...not cheddar. I used Seyfert's brand but do a Google image search for puffed corn to find other types.
  • 2
    Empty package of chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl. Cut stick of butter into approximately tablespoon size pieces and add to the bowl with the chocolate chips. Melt in microwave.
  • 3
    Stir peanut butter and vanilla into the melted chocolate/butter mixture. Pour over bowl of puffed corn. Stir gently until evenly coated then add powdered sugar and stir again.

    Pour mixture onto cookie sheet to cool. Place in a cool area or refrigerate until chocolate is set.
