Sugar Cookie Puppy Chow
I often find myself thinking back to my childhood years about snacks and treats that I really, really loved. While it’s hard to narrow it down to a definitive list of favorites, two that I really loved then (and still do now) are sugar cookies and puppy chow. And, because of how my mind works, I questioned – if they were that scrumptious all on their own, how would they be combined?
AMAZING is the answer. Absolutely amazing. Sugar Cookie Puppy Chow is the kind of treat that really stops me in my tracks. I don’t care what diet I’m on or where I am, if I see this stuff, I’m having some. Period! I just love the sugary sweetness and the fact that it’s all my childhood memories wrapped up in one nice, sprinkled little snack. The simple combination of the four ingredients is takes to make this snack is sure to make your inner child smile!

This is an easy tried and true recipe that you’ll love whipping up. Honestly, I have to will myself to stay away from it because I find myself grabbing piece after piece (or sometimes handful after handful) of this seriously addictive Sugar Cookie Puppy Chow.
PUPPY CHOW INGREDIENTS
To make this sweet puppy chow, you will need just four simple ingredients. Yes, you read that right – only 4!

HOW TO MAKE PUPPY CHOW
Here’s how to make the easiest (and tastiest) Sugar Cookie Puppy Chow EVER:
POUR: Pour the Rice Chex cereal in a large bowl, set aside.
MELT: In a microwave safe bowl, melt the almond bark according to package directions.

Tips for the BEST Sugar Cookie Puppy Chow
- I used almond bark to give this sugar cookie puppy chow that “sugar cookie” flavor. But if you don’t want to use almond bark, you can use white chocolate baking bars. Just do NOT use white chocolate chips!
- I like to use nonpareil sprinkles because they mix into the cereal a lot easier than “normal” rainbow sprinkles. With that being said, still be careful when folding the sprinkles into the puppy chow mixture because you don’t want the colors from the sprinkles to run.
- I highly recommend making this puppy chow the same day you are planning on enjoying it. The longer it sits, the less crunchy the puppy chow is, so I like to make it the day of or the night before for the freshest results!
BAKING TOOLS NEEDED
- MIXING BOWLS: I love these mixing bowls! They’re extremely durable and the colors are so much fun!
- SPATULA: Everyone needs a good quality spatula in their kitchen, and this one is my absolute favorite.
- SERVING BOWLS: I love these super cute serving bowls! After all, with a treat this cute, you need to serve it with a little flair.
So many sprinkles, so little time! If you love colorful treats half as much as I do, you need to also make No-Bake Cake Batter Truffles, Funfetti French Toast Muffins, and some truly wonderful Sugar Cookie Dip. You’ll be feeling like a real unicorn in no time!
