little eats // patriotic puppy chow

It's kind of tradition in my family that every holiday, big or small, we make some kind of dessert. Sometimes it's a new recipe and sometimes it's an old one.

This year for the Fourth of July, we decided to make Patriotic Puppy Chow, aka puppy chow with red, white, and blue m&m's.

Super easy and super yummy.

{ps // so sorry for the single photo. busy weekend = little time for photos :)}

Ingredients:

- 9 cups Chex cereal (one kind or a mix of them, your choice)
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 bag of red, white, and blue m&m's

Directions:

- In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate, butter, and peanut butter for 30 seconds. Take out, stir, and microwave for another 30 seconds. Take out and stir.

- Add in vanilla and stir to mix.

- In a separate large bowl, add the Chex. Pour chocolate, butter, and peanut butter mix on top and gently stir to coat.

- In a gallon zip bag, pour the powdered sugar. Dump in Chex mixture. Close the bag and shake, dance, and jump to mix together...or just shake to coat. ;)

- Once coated, mix in m&m's.

Told ya it was easy! ;) 

Makes one gallon bag. Super easy to half or double or quadruple.

Enjoy!
