Butterscotch Peanut Butter Puppy Chow

Raven Higheagle


When I like something, I have to make about 10 different versions of it.
Such is the same with puppy chow. Or “Muddy Buddies” as most of you know it. Whatever you call this snack mix, I think we can all agree it’s dangerously addictive and wonderful at the same time.
