Puppy Chow Cookies – Simple and Delicious

For those who are unfamiliar with the term Puppy Chow it is also called Muddy Buddies. You know, the Chex cereal munchie recipes.  I saw this recipe and thought of my friend, Jenni.  Had to make these cookies for her.  When I first tried them I thought they were tasty.  However, they were even better the next day!

Puppy Chow Cookies
DEcember 007

Ingredients for Cookie

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups flour

Ingredients for Coating

1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar

Directions for Cookies

  1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cream butter and peanut butter together until smooth. (I used my stand up mixer) Add both sugars and mix on medium.  Add egg and vanilla until all combined.
  3. Add flour, baking soda and salt. Mix on low speed.
  4. Roll into a ball about an inch round and place on baking sheet.  Lightly flatten.
  5. Bake for 8-9 minutes until lightly browned around the edges.
  6. Remove from oven and place on wire rack.  Let cool completely. (I had to omit the let cool completely step.  I made before work and had to get them done!!  Next time, I will let cool completely. Just sayin’!)

Directions for Coating

  1.   In a 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth.
  2. Put powdered sugar in a bowl
  3. Dip both sides of cookie in chocolate.  Then dip in powdered sugar to coat both sides. (Since I did not let them cool long enough I had to take a knife and frost both sides of cookie with the chocolate. Then dip in the sugar.)
  4. Place back on cooling rack until chocolate is set.

Got it all done in less than an hour.  I would say “Simple and Delicious”.  Enjoy!!
