The Best Brownie Puppy Chow Chex Mix Recipe
This Brownie Puppy Chow Chex Mix Recipe is just one variation of many different puppy chow recipes that exist. That is because it is so easy to customize Chex mix recipes to your taste. You can chose your favorite kind of Chex cereal. You can chose your add ins and your toppings. I chose to use Chex rice cereal with the normal peanut butter and chocolate mixture and then I used brownie mix as the coating (instead of powered sugar). I think this is the best brownie puppy chow Chex mix recipe around and I enjoy them just like this, they are delicious! But if you want, you can add some chocolate chips, mini Reese’s Peanut Butter cups or M&Ms to suit your taste.
Brownie Puppy Chow Chex Mix Ingredients:
- 9 cups of Rice Chex cereal
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- ½ cup of peanut butter – creamy
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cups brownie mix- from the box
How To Make Puppy Chow Chex Mix:
Put the cereal in a large bowl (you want to be able to mix in it later) and set it aside for now.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips, creamy peanut butter, vanilla extract, and butter for 30 seconds. Take out and stir and repeat this process of heating and stirring a couple of times until the peanut butter chocolate mixture is smooth.
Pour the mixture over the cereal and mix it until all the Chex in the bowl are covered.
Once the Chex has been fully mixed, dump the contents into a large plastic Ziploc bag and add brownie mix into the bag. Seal the bag without squeezing out excess air.
Here is the fun part… SHAKE THAT BAG!! Shake it until all the brownie mix covers the cereal.
You can serve these in a mixing bowl for everyone to eat or pass out individual serving bags!
