We love puppy chow so making Valentine Puppy Chow seems like a great thing to do. It is quite addictive! Corn and rice cereal covered in a layer of milk chocolate and peanut butter then coated in powdered sugar. What is not to like? Put it in a cute container and you have a sweet treat for friends! I even have a cute free Valentine gift tag for you so stay tuned! Valentine Puppy Chow

This would be a yummy treat for classroom parties served in a plastic red dog bowl from the dollar store.  You could even attach a tag that says, “You’re a dog-gone good valentine,” or “have a dog-gone good Valentine’s Day.”

      Oh, Goodness Lou Anne, I am so sorry for the miss-understanding. This is a recipe for people. It is only called puppy chow. I mistakenly assumed everyone knew this. This recipe is not intended for dogs ...only people. My apologies!
