If you love Puppy Chow, then you will love these Puppy Chow Candy Clusters. I use chocolate cereal with the classic Puppy Chow ingredients: chocolate, peanut butter, and powdered sugar.

Why You'll Love This Recipe

Nostalgic: You will love these Puppy Chow Candy Clusters! If you are a fan of traditional Puppy Chow, then this candy version is one you will absolutely love.

More Chocolate: I use Nature’s Path Coco Chimps instead of the classic chex cereal for these Puppy Chow Candy Clusters. I love the crunch this cereal has and the addition of a little more chocolate.

Chocolate + PB: I use dark chocolate and peanut butter to coat the Puppy Chow Candy Clusters. I just use a spoon to drop little clusters onto parchment paper. After they’ve cooled, I dust them with powdered sugar for a delicious no bake treat.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Add the cereal to a large bowl.

Step 2

In a separate heat proof bowl, add the dark chocolate chips and the peanut butter. Melt the chocolate and peanut butter together. You can do this using a double boiler or in the microwave, doing 30 second intervals, stirring between each one so not to burn the chocolate. 

Step 3

Add the melted chocolate and peanut butter to the cereal and stir to coat the cereal completely. 

Step 4

Using a large soup spoon, spoon clusters of chocolate cereal onto the prepared baking sheets. You should have about 30 clusters.

Step 5

Place the baking sheets in the fridge or freezer to harden the chocolate. Sift powdered sugar over the tops of the candies. Store in the fridge.
