S’mores Puppy Chow

by Erin

My phone stinks. Not because it is a dumb phone (I actually don’t really feel the need for a smart phone), but due to the fact that I can text on it all day long without any trouble yet the second I try to talk on the phone, after 5 minutes it decides to go from 100% battery to 0% and shuts off without even a low battery warning beep. Many conversations have been abruptly cut off, likely with me cursing at my phone as it dies (hopefully it dies fast enough that no one hears). Of course it then sits off for a couple minutes and when it finally comes back it has full power again. WTF!? Therefore, the only way I can talk on my phone is if it is plugged into its charger. I think I need to hunt down a new battery, and hopefully that will fix the issue.

In baking-related weather news, Friday we had a break in the heat and humidity but the next day it went right back to almost normal for this time of year. It’s not quite as hot but it’s still muggy so that means you get another no bake recipe today! It’s puppy chow with a s’mores twist, made with graham cereal instead of chex and then chocolate and marshmallows are mixed in before dusting with powdered sugar. Plan to lose self control.

S'mores Puppy Chow

Two years ago: Banana Foster Cream Pie


Makes about 8 cups


1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup Nutella

1-1/2 cups mini marshmallows

6 cups Golden Grahams cereal

1-1/2 cups powdered sugar


  1. Line a large baking sheet with wax paper, set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt the chocolate chips and Nutella on low heat. Constantly stir to avoid the chocolate from burning. Once completely melted, add in 3/4 cup marshmallows. Stir them into the chocolate mixture until they begin to melt, then remove pan from heat.
  3. Stir in Golden Grahams Cereal and the other 3/4 cup marshmallows. Stir until each piece is covered then pour evenly onto prepared baking sheet. Sift the powdered sugar in small batches onto the cereal mixture and mix every time to incorporate and evenly coat. Break up larger pieces while mixing. Allow to cool then enjoy.

[…] you want to change things up and add your candy to a different flavor of puppy chow. What about s’mores puppy chow or you could even try cake batter puppy chow. The latter may lend itself to the non-chocolate […]
