  • 9 cups Chex cereal
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup peanut butter creamy
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup M&M candies
  • 1 cup Reese's Pieces candies
  • 1 bag microwave popcorn movie theater style


  • Place the cereal to a large bowl. Place the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter in a separate microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals until completely melted and smooth. Pour the chocolate mixture over the cereal and toss to combine, taking care to ensure the cereal is completely covered.
  • Place the powdered sugar in a large gallon sized ziplock bag. Add the chocolate covered cereal and seal. Shake the bag to evenly coat the cereal pieces in the powdered sugar. Pour the contents onto a baking sheet or shallow pan into one even layer. Chill in the refrigerator until the chocolate has set, roughly 10 minutes.
  • While the puppy chow is setting, make the popcorn according to the instructions.
  • Once the puppy chow is set, combine the popcorn, m&m's, reese's pieces, and puppy chow in a large bowl. Enjoy!
