It’s that time of year already. Time for blankets, big puffy jackets, and mugs full of comforting warm drinks. Unless you live someplace that’s warm year round. If that’s the case I’m not sure what you’re currently doing. I’m currently all cozied up on the couch watching the Pioneer Woman on Food Network. My boyfriend doesn’t understand how I can watch the Food Network literally all day long. I will watch the same episodes over and over again. Personally I just love the energy the channel brings. I feel my own sense of warmth from the Food Network so that’s why it’s great to watch it during the last autumn and winter months.
We all have our own ways of warming up during the cold months. For most of us we grab a mug of hot tea or hot chocolate. Personally, I am more of a cappuccino girl. After mixing up this batch of Hot Chocolate puppy chow I now feel differently about hot chocolate. I don’t like to drink it but it sure does make a tasty snack. If you follow my blog you know I make a puppy chow recipe at least once monthly. I love how it’s easy to grab and so customizable. This flavor is by far my favorite so far (coming from a girl who doesn’t like chocolate).
This recipe will be a crowd pleaser at your next get-together. It surely was a crowd pleaser at my house 🙂
- 1 (heaping) cup white "chocolate" candy wafers
- 4 packets Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate Hot Chocolate mix
- 2 tbs. vegetable oil
- 6 cups Rice Cereal Chex
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 packets Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate Hot Chocolate mix
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- In a microwave safe bowl melt the white candy wafers on defrost for 30 seconds. Repeat until the wafers are almost fully melted. Once they're practically melted whisk in the vegetable oil. After it's nice and smooth whisk in the hot chocolate mix. Pour the hot chocolate mixture over 6 cups of rice Chex cereal and lightly stir until the cereal is evenly coated. Once covered evenly, pour the powdered sugar and hot chocolate mix into a small ziplock bag. Shake the bag until the hot chocolate mix is evenly incorporated. Add the powdered sugar mixture to the bowl of coated cereal and stir slowly until each piece is coated evenly. Stir in mini marshmallows and Enjoy!
