Chocolate Strawberry Puppy Chow

Chocolate Strawberry Muddy Buddies

Some people call them Muddy Buddies and others call the stuff Puppy Chow, but either way it’s a simple and delicious treat that people can’t get enough of!  My Red Velvet Puppy Chow is by far my most popular recipe, so I thought I would try another type of Valentine’s Day Chow–Chocolate Strawberry.  Make sure to check out my other 24 Puppy Chow Recipes!

The Story:

Dating today is very different.  There aren’t just phone calls and knocking on doors, now we have social media to confuse and complicate even more.  Every “like,” tweet, photo comment, and friend request sends a signal.

But the ultimate question for the single woman today: “Do I text him?”

My friend struggled with this question for about 6 hours.  Once she finally decided she was going to do it, she handed her phone to me to do it for her.

She thanked my flirty fingers because it was a success!  After a few texts back and forth he was over later that night watching a moving with her…score.

    Have you ever put dried strawberries into it to reinforce that flavor? These look really good. <3

    What do you do with all the partial cake mixes when you only use a cup or so from them?

      I use them in other things, like frostings (great for yellow cake mix making a cake batter flavor) I can make cookies out of them too! Or mix up a little bit of batter and swirl them into brownies

    Would chocolate chips work or would they harden too much? (and if you think they would work, would you still use 2 cups ?)
