I am so excited! My family and I are boarding a plane tomorrow and after multiple flights, including an agonizingly long overnight flight that I am not excited about, I will be in Idaho! Leftover Frosting Puppy Chow (2) As you can probably imagine, I have a bunch to do so I am going to keep this post short and sweet.

Sometimes those are the best posts anyway. No one likes to read a novel about someones pets and how much they love their grandmother just to get to a recipe. I sincerely hope that no one feels that way about my blog, Yikes!

Leftover Frosting Puppy Chow I should probably shut up now and tell you guys how awesome Puppy Chow (A.K.A Muddy Buddies) is. I have been wanting to make it for a while now but you can’t by Chex cereal here so I thought I was out of luck. Then I had the brilliant idea to use what you can buy here which is Quaker Oatmeal Squares (or Quadritos if you live in a Spanish-speaking country). Leftover Frosting Puppy Chow (3) I love frosting! If nutrition wasn’t an issue I would make it my life’s ambition eat frosting everyday. As it is, I usually make something with frosting at least once a week. Being a frosting enthusiast, I always make too much and end up with leftover. Does anyone else have this problem?…..[crickets]

Okay, so maybe I it is just me, but even if you don’t have leftover frosting you can still use any frosting for this recipe.

Leftover Frosting Puppy Chow

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: about 10 cups

Leftover Frosting Puppy Chow


  • 9 cups Quaker oatmeal squares cereal or Chex cereal
  • 200g, about 1 cup, semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1/2 cup frosting, any flavor will work (I used the leftover frosting from this recipe
  • 1 teapoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 - 4 cups powdered sugar (This will depend on how thick your frosting is.).


  1. Melt butter, chocolate, and frosting in a medium sauce pan over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and salt. Pour cereal into a large bowl and pour chocolate mixture over it. Use a large spatula to carefully mix and coat all of the cereal pieces.
  2. For the powdered sugar coating you can either use ziplock freezer bags and shake with powdered sugar until coated or do what I did and just pour it on top and toss until coated. It is up to you.
  3. After cereal is coated with powdered sugar, spread it out on a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper and allow it to dry for at least 1 hour.
  4. Store in an airtight container at room temp.
