Minty Puppy Chow How-To

So I had a party to go to on a Friday night (I know right?) and I had a dilemma: I didn’t have any food to bring! So what’s a better opportunity than this one to try out a Pinterest recipe. Here’s the link to it: http://www.yourcupofcake.com/2013/02/thin-mint-puppy-chow.html

The recipe is as follows:

I changed this recipe around QUITE a bit. Here’s what I used:

1 bag of milk chocolate chips

1 bag of white chocolate chips

1 box of Chex mix

1 pack of Oreo Thins (Minty Flavor)

About 1/2 bag of powdered sugar

1 glass measuring cup

2 microwave-safe bowls (1 not shown)

As you can imagine, I never do anything by the book. First, I put a handful of milk chocolate chips into the glass measuring cup and heated the chocolate in the microwave, taking it out every 30 seconds and stirring until I got the consistency I wanted. Be careful not to heat the chocolate up too much or it will begin to clot again.

Then I poured the chocolate over a handful of Chex and began to mix it around. Keep adding as much Chex and chocolate as you desire!IMG_8966.JPG

Then I took about 1/2 the pack of Oreos and crushed then in my hands. Wash your hand before you do this! Or use plastic gloves.IMG_8967.JPG

I added some more chocolate so both the Chex and Oreos are coated.Halfway through, I realized that my bowl was too small, so this is when I switched to the larger one. My bad 🙂IMG_8969.JPG

Now’s the time for the sugar! Sift in some sugar on the top and carefully fold it into the mix. Make sure the sugar doesn’t have any clumps in it. Add as much as desired!IMG_8970.JPG

For the white chocolate, I did the exact same steps, but I added green food coloring to the chocolate before melting i. Follow the same procedure or mix it up if you want to! Cooking and baking is all about trial and error. Find what works best for you! It may not look good, but it does the job. Here’s the finished product:
