Eat it by the handful!
We're not sure how chocolate and peanut butter covered cereal got the name puppy chow, but with just one bite, we easily forget all about the name. Puppy chow is a favorite both during the holidays and any time you need a quick and easy treat to feed a crowd. The original puppy chow recipe is absolutely addicting, but you can also make a few other varieties that are guaranteed to be just as delicious.
The original puppy chow recipe combines chocolate, peanut butter, crispy cereal and powdered sugar. While the original recipe doesn't need any adjustments, you can easily make a few small changes to boost the flavor or just have something different from the usual. Add in a little peppermint extract or various other flavorings for an added flavor boost or mix in nuts or pretzels for an added crunch and a bit of a salty flavor. After everything is mixed, you can also toss in colorful candies, sprinkles or even mini-marshmallows for a festive look. The options are endless, so get creative with what you have on hand.

For those who don't like chocolate, if that is even possible, or if you just want something a bit different, try this cinnamon version. It is just as easy to make and just as hard to stop eating once you start! You'll likely have to make a batch of each variety.
