  • 3 cups Chex cereal + 1 ½ cup extra (to be used as add-ons)
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips or dark chocolate bark
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 ¾ cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt optional
  • 1 ½ cup confectioners powdered sugar


  • Mini marshmallows
  • Mini Reese peanut butter cups I used the normal Reese cups, chopped into half
  • Chocolate chips
  • Christmas M&M


  • In a microwaveable bowl melt dark chocolate and peanut butter for 30 seconds interval for 2-3 times stirring in between.
  • Pro-Tip: I prefer to use dark chocolate instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips. It’s sugar loaded snack, so using dark chocolate cuts down the sweetness to a bit.
  • Once completely melted, add in vanilla extract and ¾ cup mini marshmallows and stir well.
  • Pro-Tip: DO NOT heat on high temperature once marshmallow is added. Stir in the marshmallows in microwave for 30 seconds to a minute on low temperature. Marshmallows will thicken and turn chocolate mix hard if heated on high temperature.
  • No need to completely melt the marshmallows. The heat of the microwaveable jar will begin to slightly melt, that sound be enough.
  • Have chex cereal mix ready in a large mixing bowl or a gallon sized zip lock bag. Pour the chocolate mix over the cereal. Stir or mix gently to coat.
  • Pro-Tip: be gentle while stirring. You don’t want to break the cereal, don’t worry about clump together. Cereal should be completely coated in chocolate.
  • Load these chocolate coated cereal in zip lock bag with powdered sugar and shake it well. Everything should be coated well with sugar.
  • Wait for the puppy chow to dry. Then mix in the add-ins. Miniature Reese peanut butter cups, mini marshmallows, naked Chex cereals, choco chips, Christmas M&M’s, pretzels, sprinkles, or any other add-ins of your choice.
  • Serve it immediately. Or store it in air tight container for up-to a week.
