Poppy Chow---A Special Secret Recipe Club Post

Here we are again with another Secret Recipe Club post for August.  Why?  Because as a group, when we heard that only one blogger didn’t get something posted from their blog, we all banded together and decided that as many of us as could would make and post something today just for fun.  Surprise, Connor's Cooking!

You’ve probably seen or heard of General Mills Chex Muddy Buddies (also sometimes called Puppy Chow)—this is the same idea, except instead of making it with cereal, it’s made with popcorn--Poppy Chow.  Cute.  I was drawn to the fun name and I knew my boys like the Chex Muddy Buddies version of this treat, so after seeing it over at Connor’s Cooking, I decided to make a batch.

It’s simple as can be, pop up some popcorn--

Melt some chocolate, peanut butter, a little butter and some vanilla together--

Add it to the popcorn and coat all the popcorn with the heavenly chocolate/peanut butter mixture--

That is not all though—after that, generously coat the chocolaty popcorn with a nice dusting of a little more sweetness—powdered sugar.

Let it set for as long as you (and your kids) can stand to wait before serving up the treat for the evening!

There’s just one word for this stuff---

You can get the super simple recipe at Connor's Cooking.  She found the recipe at Tasty Kitchen.

I wanted to make this but, I was scared. I was so scared that I would end up eating it all. This just looks like the best snack EVER!

I have been wanting to make this for ages but I dare not as I know I would eat way too much. It was fun coming together and cooking from Connor's Cooking. I hope that you'll check out the Nutella Crêpes which I made from her blog.

Oh my heck! With popcorn??? YUM!!!

Cindy said...

Oh Katrina, this looks so good but I am afraid to make it. I don't have a house full of hungry little guys to help me eat it. But, it would look fun in a cello baggie tied with a cute ribbon. It would be fun to share. I'll make a batch tonight. I can talk myself into making most any treat!

I love puppy chow but I think I love poppy chow even more. I love popcorn!

What a great idea to use popcorn! This would be so dangerous to have around - I need to make it when I have a bunch of people to help eat it.

Tami said...

OMG, I have to try this recipe! I LOVE the muddy buddy mix. This is one of those things that I have to limit myself with when I sit down or I will eat all of it! (pathetic, huh?)

Lisa said...

Oh that looks so cool. If I only had the time I would have loved to do another recipe too.

I'm going to make this!

Owen's Mom said...

Yum! I love the idea of using popcorn. I am going to have to try this one for myself... with lots of taste testing. :)

I hope you have the chance to stop by for my #27. Baked Oatmeal

And I almost didn't click on this because I make puppy chow. I can't wait to try it with popcorn. Sometimes I make the chex one and put it in a new dog's dish, pull some cellophane around it and tie a dog toy to it. Makes a fun gift for a man with a dog. Just so he knows the food is for him. Ha!

Your boys aren't the only ones that like Puppy Chow. ;-) I like it too but no longer have kids around as an excuse to make it. No doubt I'd love the Poppy Chow too!!

Looks delicious Katrina! I first saw this idea on a different blog a months back. I really like this idea, a great snack to take to a party... or just eat all by yourself! =)

Noelle said...

Puppy chow....wow, I have not had that in a long time. Looks delish! Great pick for the SRC!

Jennifer Sikora said...

This looks delicious, and and made something from her blog, Katrina. I wanted to as well, but I've been super busy.

Monique @AmbitiousKitch said...

Yes! I've always wondered why more people don't make unique popcorn mixes. Thanks for this!
