Read below about Bryn’s adventure in cooking. She even sent us a poem she wrote about chocolate; so cool! Thanks, Bryn!
“One snack that I absolutely LOVE is Puppy Chow. Don’t stop reading! It is not really dog food. It is a delicious, amazing, tasty snack that I wish I could devour every day. Puppy Chow is Chex Mix with a chocolatey taste and powdered sugar coated on top.
One time my friends and I were playing a game called “Chopped” (like the show on Food Network), where 3 people are given crazy ingredients, and you are supposed to make a dish out of them.
We were asked to make a dessert, but one of the ingredients was potato chips. I sat in the kitchen for about 1 minute trying to think of what to do with the chips. Suddenly, I thought of Puppy Chow!
I melted the butter, peanut butter, chocolate and vanilla together to make the chocolate layer. Then I put the chips (which substituted for the Chex Mix) in the chocolate mixture. Finally, I poured the powdered sugar on top.
It turned out really good! I was so happy and relieved. But I have to recommend using the Chex Mix instead of chips. It is definitely a little healthier! The recipe is below; hope you enjoy.”
