Let’s get right down to business. For the First Day of Sweet Eats & Holiday Treats I made Candy Cane Peppermint Puppy Chow.

This stuff is goooooooood. Like SO gooooooood! I literally make it too often, and 

It’s addicting. Like crack. I think. I don’t actually know because I’ve never done crack.

If you love flavored puppy chow recipes, you’ll love this. It’s so easy and tastes so great!

We make flavored puppy chow a lot, and I have to share even half of them. Time to get on that now.

The peppermint flavor is creamy and wonderful, it’s like handful’s of candy canes in a sweet treat you can eat just about anywhere.

We’ve made this every year since my kids were little. It’s their favorite.

Now they are 24 and 21. And we still keep making this Peppermint Puppy Chow.

I think we will always make it.

Now that I have a three year old grandson, I’m more apt to make it every week during the winter months. He loves puppy chow.

Ingredients

  4. Pour in the coated chex cereal.
  5. Seal the baggie and shake vigorously until all the cereal is coated with the sugar and candy canes.

This looks like it would be crack for me, too! Although, yeah....I've never done crack, either. I like to say that everything I know about drugs, I've learned from "Breaking Bad." True story.
