24 puppy chow recipes

The Story:

I was a camp director for 4 years.  Four years of walkie talkies, playing tag, glitter and glue, living in STAFF shirts, finding twigs in my hair, camp songs, and insane stories no one would believe. Bees attacking kids on field trips, children running away from camp and chasing them down, getting 108 mosquitoe bites from a 5 minute walk, peeling a child’s fingertip off the door and putting it on ice for the paramedics and so much more.  The kids favorite  activity? Snack time.  Nothing made them happier than a bag full of “puppy chow.”


Our kids at camp didn’t get fancy chow like this, we just made them the basic kind because I didn’t know anything else yet!  Some people call this stuff Puppy Chow  and some call it Muddy Buddies but it’s the same thing.  And I don’t care how old you are, you will love this stuff!  I’ve seen it served at weddings, graduation parties and given as holiday gifts.  The trick is how you “dress” it up.  At parties you can serve it in cupcake liners or soufflé cups (or just a big bowl) and when you give it away it’s adorable in little treat bags tied up with bows or in tins!

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I to find this topic to be really something which I think
    I’d by no means understand. It seems too complex and extremely vast for me.
    I am having a look forward in your subsequent put up,
    I’ll try to get the dangle of it!

    Definitely believe that that you stated. Your favourite justification seemed
    to be on the web the simplest factor to be mindful of. I say to you, I
    definitely get annoyed whilst other folks consider issues that they plainly don’t recognize about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly as outlined out the entire thing without having side-effects , people
    could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you!
