My husband’s exact words to me today were, “If you could just go ahead and make puppy chow once a week, that would be great.”

Although I don’t make it once a week (I would cave on my diet if I did) I do try to make it around the holidays. My puppy chow recipe stores so well that I usually make a huge batch and can easily keep it in a closed container or even the plastic bag that I make it in.

Haven’t heard of puppy chow? It is a delicious snack that involves both peanut butter and chocolate coated Chex and is then covered in powdered sugar.
