Puppy Chow Down

Now, 'round these parts, our "Puppy Chow" is a little different from others I've had. Puppy Chow (also called "Monkey Munch," "Chex Mix," "White Trash," "Cereal with Crack"...okay I made that last one up) in our family is this recipe.




But my friend who grew up only an hour from me says Puppy Chow is this recipe.





I call the latter recipe "Monkey Munch" from 'Jon and Kate Plus 8' - a show which has given me meaning in life and drives me out of bed every morning. Okay, not really, but I love it nonetheless. The nice thing about MM is that I made it safe for my nephew (allergic to gluten, dairy, potatoes, oranges and peanut butter) by using alternate butter and chocolate chips, and by using sunflower seed butter. It was actually pretty good (translation: I ended up eating most of it).

WHATEVER you call this stuff, or WHICHever recipe you use, it is a-m-a-z-i-n-g! I had a bowl...okay, two bowls last night. Okay, so three bowls. Whatever.

Anyway, it's real good stuff and super easy to make.

It is SUCH a good show! I just love their kiddos and all of the craziness. I would love to be their 9th child...or...a little sister to Kate (slightly more realistic).

I heard a HORRIBLE rumor that they are stopping the show. I would need a new family of 10 to stalk!

I've learned that I simply cannot make this stuff or be within about a mile distance of a bowl. It is addictive as CRACK!!!

Sweets - IT IS!!!! And the sad thing is, EVERY single time I see it, I try to give myself another chance. Two hours later, you're likely to find me with powdered sugar smeared on my lips. Sigh. Thankfully we USUALLY only make it around Christmas time....
