Hey everyone! I’m Lindsay from Life, Love and Sugar, where I share all kinds of fun and tasty treats and desserts. I’m so happy to be guest posting on Wine and Glue today!

I brought some Fluffernutter Puppy Chow to share with you all. Puppy chow is one of my favorite things to make (and eat!). It’s always such a hit with my husband and when I share it with friends. There’s never any left – and this puppy chow was no exception!

Another thing I love is fluffernutter sandwiches. Not familiar? It’s a peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwich.

Growing up, I didn’t actually like peanut butter that much – fortunately that has been corrected as an adult – but I ate those fluffernutter sandwiches all the time just so I could have the marshmallow fluff. I’ve always had a pretty big sweet tooth. :)

So it made perfect sense to me to combine two loves of mine and make this puppy chow. Such an awesome flavor combination!

The base of this puppy chow is white chocolate. I didn’t want milk chocolate to overpower the peanut butter and marshmallow flavor. I also made half of the puppy chow with peanut butter, and half with marshmallow. That way, you have both distinct flavors and nothing gets lost in the mix!

The peanut butter half is super easy and the chocolate mixture can be melted right in the microwave! My kind of dessert!

The marshmallow half needs to be melted over the stove. I tried to get by with the microwave, but the marshmallows can be temperamental. As you melt it over the stove, the mixture will start out kind of clumpy. Just let it melt slowly over medium heat, and it will come together to give you a nice, smooth mixture.

With both halves, you want to melt the mixture together until smooth, add it to the chex mix and stir carefully to coat the chex. The chex are then covered in powdered sugar and make a super tasty treat!

Go ahead and try not to eat all of it at once. :)  It certainly didn’t last long in our house!

    Whew. What a relief that you grew up to like peanut butter more! That would have been so tragic…
