    Good ole’ puppy chow right here in Iowa—I love it with ‘chunky peanut butter’ rather than just the ‘creamy’ but I love nuts too—maybe that is because I am one! LOL

    Super cute cupcake Friday card here Taylor—you do awesome work–day in and day out!

  • Karen (taiterbug)

    Another cute card – great idea for a party – we are all kids at heart. Here in Ontario, Canada – no idea what “Puppy Chow” is except the kind that my 3 year old puppy eats and that certainly doesn’t look inviting. Have a great day. Karen

    I just love your cupcake cards! Actually, I love all of your cards. What a wonderful talent you have. I just found your blog and will be checking in every day (I also subscribed). Thanks for sharing!!

  • Sherri (sherristampsalot)

    I believe your Puppy Chow is what we call Muddy Buddies… Scrumptablulous! Hmmm…I just might have to go make some now! Adorbale cupcake card, too!

    Puppy Chow is the Bomb! I’m an Iowa girl too so I think it’s a requirement for all of us to know how to make it.
    My guess is that all those smells in Cedar Rapids got some people goofy one day and they thought it would be funny to make cereal into something that looks like dog food. (for Non-Iowa people, They make Purina Puppy chow in one factory in Cedar Rapids and in a total other they also make Cereal)

    An IL girlie and I LOVE Puppy Chow! Such a delicious chocolately snack! (And LOVE the card, too, Taylor!)

    Have a wonderful time this weekend meeting up with all those SCS girls. What a fun time that will be! Can’t wait to see pics of your get-together!

  • Trish D

    I *Looooooove* Puppy Chow!! My friends and I would always make big batches of it on our movie nights back in junior high. We just had a church get together over the weekend, and someone from the area (Pennsylvania) actually brought a big bowl. YUM! People were oohing and ahhing over it. BTW, she called it “Muddy Buddies.”

  • Cindy Keery

    I have made puppy chow before… but am curious to see if your recipe is the same as mine.

  • lorrietori

    this is adorable! I have heard of Puppy Chow but don’t remember what’s in it. Can’t wait for the recipe!

  • MiMi's Place

    How can anyone live without Puppy Chow? When I get on a PC binge I keep making it for weeks. I like to say I make it for our family, but my husband can take it or leave it and the cat and bird do not want any part of it!

    In hot, humid southern Illinois we have to make it in the cooler months or keep it somewhere very cool Otherwise it is a mess. It is a must have over the holidays!

    It is no wonder your stamping friends love it… it is irresistible!

    I grew up in Kentucky and I don’t have any idea what Puppy Chow is. I’ve lived all over since going to college (the AF) and haven’t heard of it in Colorado, Wyoming, Georgia or Texas either!! Can’t wait to find out what it is! 🙂

  • JenMarie

    Hey Taylor – I’m from Louisiana but have lived in Illinois for 6 years. We had puppy chow down there and here in central IL.

    From Wisconsin–yes, we know Puppy Chow. (Haven’t made it in a long time–thanks for the reminder!)

  • Lauri

    I love Puppy Chow being from Ohio. I love to make it for gatherings and get the weird faces from people who don’t know what it is. Adults and kids love this addicting snack. I usually have to make this for my BIL for his birthdays.
    This is worth making! Oh, and the cupcake card rocks!

  • JennyMick

    Born in Iowa, raised in Wisconsin, how could I not know what Puppy Chow is? I couldn’t give you a recipe, but I can certainly vouch for the yummy factor.

    I’m curious though, as this does not seem to be as widely known about on the coasts, is there something yummy they have that us in the midwest are in the dark about?

  • Anonymous

    Don’t know as I’ve ever heard of Puppy chow, but I’m guessing it’s some kind of cereal snack mix. Love the cupcake today! As always your card is wonderful, fun and just a whole bunch of yummy!

  • Susan L.

    Puppy Chow ROCKS!!! I have lived in Wa. State my whole life and actually discovered something similar about 8 years ago,but the box of cereal called it muddy buddies or something…NOT as good as Puppy Chow!! My kids are already bugging me to make it. We usually make it to have around the Holidays.
    P.S. I have enjoyed your blog.

    I have had Puppy Chow Snack many times. Learned to make it long ago at Girl Scout Camp in VIRGINIA.

    Also received it in a goodie bag once during a trip to TEXAS for a wedding.

    And, I have a school fundraiser cookbook from PENNSYLVANIA with the recipe.

    Enjoy your snck and day with other stampers!
