This Blue Puppy Chow Recipe is great for a party snack or a 4th of July recipe. This Chex muddy buddies recipe is also perfect for a fun baby shower, too! I’m a huge fan of puppy chow recipes because of how simple and easy it is to make.

The biggest thing to remember is that you’re going to pour mixture over cereal stirring until evenly coated. Be careful when stirring as you don’t want to break up the cereal. Once you add powdered sugar into the mix, it starts to get interesting and certainly tasty. Then, you just have to spread on waxed paper to cool. That’s it!

This is one of my boy’s favorite snacks because of how quick and easy it is to make. I can have this done for them in no time at all, which is how they like all their desserts to happen.
