Snickerdoodle Puppy Chow

Snickerdoodle Puppy Chow

The Story:

Well all remember them.  The things our parents used to say to us that actually made no sense at all.  Weren’t they supposed to be TEACHING us as kids and not filling our minds with worthless phrases?

“See Ya Later Alligator!”  :We aren’t alligators nor is it nice to infer your child looks like a green river beast everyone is afraid of.

“Easy-peasy Japanesey” :What….? You made a really awful rhyme and it makes no sense anyway.  Or if you did the Lemon-Squeezy version.  It’s not easy to squeeze a lemon because all those seeds get in the way!

“Oh Kidos…” :Kidos isn’t even a real word, don’t make things up.

“Okey-Dokey Artichokey.” :Again, why are we telling children they look green?  And this time delicious as well?  Are parents just hungry all the time and thinking about food?

“Silly Snickerdoodle…” :Are snickerdoodles silly? I can’t remember the last joke I heard from one. [end-story]

Snickerdoodle Puppy Chow


6 C. Rice Chex Mix
1 3/4 C. white chocolate chips
3/4 C. powdered sugar
1/4 C. granulated sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon


1. Measure out Rice Chex and place into a large bowl.
2. Combine powdered sugar, granulated sugar and cinnamon. (I just thew it into a large plastic bag and gave it a good shake and left it in the bag.)
3. Melt white chocolate chips in the microwave or using a double boiler. Be careful, white chocolate can burn easily.
4. Pour over Chex and stir until coated.
5. Dump into your large plastic bag with the cinnamon/sugar mixture, seal and shake until coated.
6. Pour onto a cookie sheet to let cool.
NOTE: I thought this might be fun to toss with some Cinnamon Toast Crunch as well for extra color and taste.

    You are a genius! I finally got around to trying one of the puppy chows and cannot believe how wonderful it is. One of the reasons I have waited so long to try these was because I KNEW I would become addicted. And, sure enough, I have a feeling that someday soon my daughter will have to arrange for a stint in rehab for her mother. I’m curious about a couple of things. First of all, do you have a degree in some area of the nutrition? Second, do you ever plan to return to the Portland area? Finally, if you do will you be opening up some type of business? The fact is that you are younger than my daughter but I believe I could learn sooo much from you. I look forward to each and every one of your emails. Even they are wonderful.

    Thank you for everything you do for all of your followers……Pam

      No idea on the nutrition, sorry. Juts take each ingredient and do the nutrition for that and then add it all up. I will be in Portland all of September but I don’t plan on opening a bakery because I strongly believe in people learning to bake rather than paying $2 a cupcake. Also, I don’t know where I will be in the next 2 years, so I just can’t tie myself for a spot yet.

    Hershey’s now makes cinnamon chips, which are AMAZING. I’m thinking you could swap the white chocolate chips for those and omit the extra cinnamon and it would be even more amazing!

    Tried this tonight with 4 cups of chex and 2 cups of cinnamon toast crunch….and all I can say was, “OMG” this is soo much better than the “original” puppy chow! My daughter ran to the store to get more white chips to make a second batch!

    Had some leftover white chocolate from making the “Bunny Chow” (so good!) so I found this recipe and thought I’d try it. Holy Moly! It’s amazing! Definitely going to try it with Cinnamon Toast Crunch next time I make it too! Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂
