I seriously can’t stop eating this Christmas Puppy Chow! This recipe makes for a perfect Christmas movie snack, you can share or (my personal favorite) eat it all to yourself. Not to mention that this recipe comes together in 10 minutes – it doesn’t get any better than that! Christmas Puppy Chow is also kid friendly, not only to eat, but to make. There is nothing better than getting the family together in the kitchen for some fun holiday baking. I love serving this with holiday M&Ms for that extra festive feel and colors! You can even add in some holiday sprinkles.

Don’t let the name fool you though, this recipe is NOT made for dogs, it is made for humans! This recipe goes by a couple names like puppy chow, muddy buddies, trash, etc. Whatever you call it, it is completely delicious!
