Reeses Pieces Puppy Chow


Reeses Pieces Puppy Chow..Wait, What?

You read that right.  Reeses Pieces Puppy Chow.  The first time someone brought Puppy Chow in for a snack where I worked, I thought they were insane. They even went so far as to serve it in a clean dog food bowl.  It was a cute touch, but weird.  But I should have expected as much from someone who brought in a flower pot full of a wondrous dessert she called “Dirt”.  Puppy Chow was an interesting mix of chocolate, peanut butter, crispy cereal, and powdered sugar.  I was hooked.  But I took it a step further with my Reeses Pieces Puppy Chow.  Half of the tasty morsels are chocolate and peanut butter, like the original.  The other half are butterscotch and peanut butter.  And they are all mixed together with a smattering of Reeses Pieces candy.  It’s the perfect Autumn treat for home as well as the office.

Making Reeses Pieces Puppy Chow in Minutes

Reeses Pieces Puppy Chow is really a fast recipe to make.  The chips and peanut butter get warmed in the microwave in just a minute or two, then mixed with the cereal.  I used Rice Chex cereal, but you can use whatever similar cereal you like.  I’ve used Crispex, all the Chex, and even Cheerios.  They all work well.  It just depends on your personal tastes as to what you use in Reeses Pieces Puppy Chow.  Once the cereal is coated, transfer it to a gallon sized plastic zippy bag with powdered sugar in it, seal it and shake to coat them.  I usually put them in a colander and shake gently to get any extra sugar off.  That’s all it takes to make these delicious little treats that you can pack in lunches, or just put a bowl out for an event or at work.

  1. I’m making this for a Halloween party, I noticed other recipes call for margarine. Can I use margarine or is there no need for it?
