Yummy Puppy Chow Rice Krispie Treats

Sharing is caring!

These Puppy Chow Rice Krispie Treats have such an awesome flavor! I love the crunch of the cereal combined with the sweetness of the other added ingredients. And if you’re a fan of that as well, make certain to check out our other puppy chow recipes!

Some people also call this a muddy buddy recipe as well and to me, it doesn’t matter what you call it as long as you make it! The flavors of the melted chocolate and sweet ingredients really take this over the top.

There’s a reason it’s one of my favorite desserts to make!

Even though this recipe isn’t hard to do, there are a few things to keep in mind. When you add the marshmallows to the butter, you’re going to want to keep stirring until it’s melted and smooth. This not only takes away any lumps of marshmallows but also prevents them from burning, too.

I’ve made this recipe for years for my boys and it’s always a huge hit. They love that they get two sweet recipes flavors in one easy bite and I love how fast and simple they are to make!

How do you keep this from sticking and making a mess?

I like to use coconut oil spray on my baking dish and on my wooden spoon that I use for stirring, too. Parchment paper is quite the life saver as well!
