It's hard to beat puppy chow! It's so gooooood!

I had to look up a recipe that was called Puppy Chow! I wondered what that was. I'm definitely going to try some of this. It is quite a nice idea to whip up when you are looking for something sweet to snack on and may be a nice idea to have for movie night!

This recipe is an all-time favourite of my kids! We've seen it called "Monkey Munch" too! This is an easy to make treat with a few simple ingredients that you are sure to have on hand. My kids love helping me make it too! This is great for a treat in the lunchbox or an after-school snack. This is a real winner - I need to make some again soon! When I make it I substitute Shreddies cereal since we don't have Golden Grahams in Canada - just as tasty!

So, confession. I 've never made any version of puppy chow. It looks really good but I hardly ever think to make it. I love the name Monkey Munch. LOL-would have made the perfect treat for my nephew, whom I called "my little monkey" when he was little. He's sixteen now, but I think I'll give this recipe a try and give it to him as Monkey Munch the next time I see him. hahahahathanks for the idea!
