great for a crowd (or just your family), this big batch puppy chow is super simple to make and every better to eat!



  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 oz box of chex cereal (I like corn or rice)
  • 3 cups powdered sugar


  1. in a large glass bowl place the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter
  2. put the bowl in the microwave and heat at 30 second increments stirring every 30 seconds until everything is melted together
  3. once everything is melted, stir until really well combined
  4. add in the vanilla and salt until combined
  5. dump the cereal into the melted chocolate mix and stir carefully until all of the cereal is well coated
  6. into a large zip top bag, dump the powdered sugar (if using gallon size bags, you may need to split this into two batches)
  7. add in the coated cereal and shake until all the pieces are well coated and the entire mix is white and covered
  8. spread out on a parchment lined baking sheet and let set until cool (can refrigerate if need be to hurry up the process)
  9. enjoy!


make sure that everything is well combined before adding the cereal

be sure to coat the chocolate covered cereal really well with the powdered sugar.  add more as needed to the zip top bag to ensure good coverage!
