The BEST Puppy Chow Muddy Buddies Recipe
Since I was probably 10 years old Puppy Chow, or what we call Muddy Buddies, have been one of my favorite treats and of course they were one of the very first things I learned how to make.
They’re a regular thing around here (I make them probably once a month), and I love taking them on trips and bringing them to parties. My whole family is obsessed with these! They’re also great for Christmas gifting to those without allergies.
They are unbelievably easy to make and hard to mess up. No mixer required, and no oven or stovetop needed. All you need is a microwave and a few basic kitchen tools (bowl, measuring cups, spatula), and about 10 minutes of your time or less to prepare them.
So what’s my tip for the best puppy chow?? Milk chocolate chips. I mean think about it, do Reese’s peanut butter cups taste good with dark chocolate? No. Peanut butter and milk chocolate were made go together, otherwise dark chocolate overpowers and drowns out the flavor of the peanut butter.
If you insist you can use half semi-sweet chocolate chips and half milk chocolate chips but I don’t recommend all semi-sweet chocolate chips or it’s just too much if you ask me. I’ve tasted both and hands down milk chocolate wins no question. Try it and you will see what I mean!
