“Puppy Chow” / Muddy Buddies: 3 Ingredient Recipes

DOG is here to help me make something that’s sweet and delicious, but not for dogs! Even though this candy is called “Puppy Chow” (or sometimes Muddy Buddies), it’s for people only, because it’s made with chocolate, peanut butter, and Chex cereal. It’s as easy to make as it is delicious, and we adapted the recipe to require just 3 ingredients!

Puppy Chow / Muddy Buddies


1 8-oz. package mini peanut butter cups
4 cups Chex cereal
1 cup powdered sugar

Melt the peanut butter cups in a microwave-safe bowl and then add Chex cereal. Stir until completely coated with chocolate mixture. Place powdered sugar in a large zippered plastic bag and pour cereal mixture over it, then seal the bag and shake until all pieces are coated with the sugar. Pour in a single layer onto a lined baking sheet and chill until set.
