Puppy Chow

by sunshine on December 8, 2008

This recipe has been around forever and it is yet another recipe that I love to make during the Christmas season (surprise, surprise!).  I’ve never figured out exactly why it’s called “Puppy Chow” but that’s what I’ve always heard it called.  Your guess is as good as mine  : )

I could eat this stuff ALL DAY LONG!  I usually have to make at least a double batch so I can keep some for myself!!  It’s a perfect combination of chocolate, peanut butter and crunchiness!

It is called puppy chow because years back the puppy chow puppy food had a white milk coating on it and resembled the look of this candy.
