Isn’t this pretty? A very easy, yummy, and cute Christmas gift for a teacher, neighbours, or friends. My friend Parla made this beautiful jar for a Christmas bake exchange I hosted. Simply take a mason jar, fill it with puppy chow, top the lid with a brown coffee filter, tied with a ribbon! I think even *I* could manage something simple like this. 🙂


Puppy Chow

1/8 cup butter
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/8 tsp vanilla
4 1/2 cups cereal (Crispix, Chex, Cocoa puffs, etc)
1 cup powdered sugar

Melt butter, peanut butter and chocolate chips on low. Stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal in large bowl and stir until coated. Put powdered sugar in large bag. Spoon cereal in bag of powdered sugar. Close bag, leave some air in the bag. Shake to coat. When thoroughly coated, open bag and let cool – shaking occasionally for the next 30 minutes to prevent large chunks.
