If I say Puppy Chow, and you were born before 1990 you don’t have visions of cute puppies with wagging tails and lolling tongues dancing through your head.
If you were born before 1990, you are immediately transported back to the peanut buttery, powdered sugary, crispy, crunchy snack mix that showed up at every class party, birthday party and after school event.
For some unknown reason, Puppy Chow is now known as Muddy Buddy snack mix (what?) but the basics remain the same.
The other day I was debating what to put into our ‘You’ve Been Booed” buckets, and puppy chow came to mind. Sugary, savory, crispy, a hint salty – it’s kind of the definition of perfection in the snack world.
However my kids aren’t keen on peanut butter (I KNOW!) so I twisted, tweaked, and with a bit of inspiration from Your Cup of Cake , I have a brand new Halloween inspired Puppy Chow that is chock full of Halloween Goodness and Nutella nomminess.
