Cinnamon Toast Crunch Puppy Chow

Living in New England, I continuously discover things that are local or regional to my hometown in Kentucky. Recently I discovered that people here are not familiar with Puppy Chow.  Or, I should say, they’re not familiar with the name “Puppy Chow” for the chocolatey, peanut buttery, powdered sugary, addictive treat.  They call it by other names, but when I refer to Puppy Chow they all think I’m crazy.

I also discovered that I have a friend who doesn’t like Puppy Chow.  Have you ever heard of such a thing?! How can you not like the most addictive treat on the face of the planet?! It turns out, she finds Chex to be too boring.  So I took that as a challenge to spice up my Puppy Chow. And I did just that…literally!

Cinnamon Toast Crunch with Chocolate Peanut Butter

I first tried to replace the Chex with popcorn, but it came out a bit chewy.  Some of it may have been my poor popcorn making skills, but I think the chocolate and peanut butter did not help it. So I was back to square one and trying to think of ways to give it a little more pizzaz.  I thought about pretzels, which would be delicious, but probably too big.  Then the idea of Cinnamon Toast Crunch came to me.

I’m not a huge fan of cinnamon, but I love cinnamon sugar! And with fall coming, a little splash of cinnamon makes everything better.  So when you need a delicious snack for football season, this is a perfect, easy, and delicious treat with a little extra spice that you can easily transport to game watching parties, tailgates, or just snack on in the comfort of your own home while watching the game in your underwear!
