A rare treat we had at my family get-togethers growing up was puppy chow. What goes together better than chocolate and peanut butter? Two of my faves! But now that I have kids with food allergies, we must adjust. I took our family recipe and tweaked it to meet our needs.
1/4 c milk-free butter (I used Earth Balance Soy Free)
3 c chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)
1 c peanut butter alternative*
12 oz Rice Chex (gluten-free)
3 c powdered sugar
Over low heat, melt butter, chocolate chips, and peanut butter alternative. Pour mixture over Rice Chex and mix. Let stand 5 minutes. Put cereal and powdered sugar in a paper bag and shake well. Pour into a bowl and freeze 1-2 hours.
*I halved this recipe and added 1/2 c Barney's almond butter (which is dedicated peanut-free) to one half and 1/2 c Wowbutter (made with soy) to the other half.
Both batches taste eerily like the original peanut butter version. So delicious!
