Introduction: Christmas Puppy Chow | Muddy Buddies

About: Hey y'all! My name is Lydia and I want to share my passion for cooking/baking with everyone!

Have you ever had Puppy Chow? Now I do not mean the puppy chow that you feed your puppy, I mean this delicious chocolatey, peanut buttery goodness covered in powdered sugar. I've made mine for Christmas because it's the holidays so I've added Christmas sprinkles to the mix but if you don't care for the sprinkles just omit them or you can change it up and use other sprinkles or candy for other holidays. If you want to learn how to make Christmas Puppy Chow, follow along with these simple step by step instructions or watch the video below. Let's go!
