White Chocolate Peppermint Puppy Chow

I’ve wanted to do a baking blog for several years. For some reason or another, I never fulfilled this dream. I figure with Christmas right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to get started and share my baking explorations. My first treat will be a puppy chow I discovered via Pinterest. Thank you {sally's baking addiction}

Puppy Chow

To make everything easier, I like to start by prepping everything. That way, once I start the recipe, it comes together quickly. 

The best place to start is by crushing candy canes. Get wax paper, put your candy canes in the center and wrap up, so the crushed canes won't escape. Bang with a rolling pin.

Next melt your white chocolate using your microwave's 60 percent power feature. Then add the chocolate to your chex mix and then add your crushed canes.

Then transfer the mixture to a Ziploc bag with powdered sugar. Shake and enjoy!!!

  • 1 cup crushed candy canes (about 12 canes)
  • 1 12 oz bag white chocolate morsels
  • 5 cups rice chex
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Prep Work

Cut piece of wax paper. Place four candy canes (per batch - 3 total) on parchment paper and fold up parchment paper so no candy canes slip out. Bang package with rolling pin until candy canes are crushed to desired fineness.  

Melt white chocolate in microwave safe bowl for one minute at 60 percent power. Stir. Microwave for additional minute or until fully melted.

Put 1/2 cup of powdered sugar in one Ziploc bag.


Place rice chex in large bowl. Pour melted white chocolate on chex. Stir to coat. Pour crushed candy canes on top and stir.

Using a measuring cup, or your hands, transfer mixture to prepared Ziploc bag (all will fit!) Add 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. SHAKE!

Pour back in original bowl and enjoy!
