So, do you call it puppy chow or muddy buddies? We’ve always referred to it as puppy chow but either way, it’s one delicious snack. I’ve always enjoyed the classic chocolate and peanut butter combination but with all the unique recipes out there these days, it was about time we try something different.
When I came across this recipe I knew it would be perfect to make for Hannah’s carnival themed 1st birthday party. Yes, I made this back in October and am just sharing it now. Which is pretty much a travesty seeing that it’s one of the best snacks ever. Seriously, I could not stop eating this stuff. And I don’t even like white chocolate. But I do have to admit that frosted animal crackers are a weakness of mine. They were one of my favorite snacks as a child so when I indulge in them (every few years), they always bring me back.
And adding cereal, white chocolate and sprinkles just makes them a million times better. Gah, it’s a good thing I don’t have any of these ingredients in my house because it would so be happening right now.
Frosted Animal Cracker Puppy Chow
recipe from Inside Bru Crew Life
9 cups Chex cereal (14 oz. box)
16 ounces vanilla almond bark
13 ounce bag frosted animal crackers
1/4 cup nonparil sprinkles
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1. Crush enough animal crackers to get 1 1/2 cups. Mix with sprinkles. Set aside.
2. Place cereal in a large mixing bowl with a lid. In a microwave safe bowl, melt almond bark in 30 second increments. Drizzle melted almond bark over the cereal and mix until covered. Dump in animal cracker crumbs and stir thoroughly. Add in powdered sugar and mix again.
3. Crush remaining animal crackers into chunks and stir into the puppy chow. Store in an airtight container (we liked ours refrigerated).
