Ingredients needed to make Dark Puppy Chow Mix

Every year we have a family bake day and it’s so much fun! One item that is always made is puppy chow. It’s a favorite of mine, and I normally only have it during the holidays.

The nice thing about this recipe is it’s so simple, even children can make it! We don’t have a microwave at our house, but we normally do our baking day at my mother-in-law’s house, and she has one. 🙂

  1. Oh, my goodness! Thank you! You are an answer to prayer! I have just been stressing about what to give our neighbors for Christmas. We have lots of neighbors, and with four children I just can’t spend days making beautiful cookie plates. This is my new idea for this year. Thanks!!!
