PB&J Puppy Chow

Sings “PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME!” I’m back with yet ANOTHER puppy chow recipe and if you’re like me than this one will be your favorite one yet! Shane was VERY skeptical at first – he said “I don’t like jelly” and I responded “Just try it!” … we are on our third batch and not because of me!

I will say this combination seems lighter to me, meaning it’s not as rich! The fruitiness of the strawberry cake mix pairs perfectly with the salty of the peanut butter! This was a combo that I had been messing with for a while but couldn’t get the consistency just right, until NOW. I will say I prefer using the almond bark over white chocolate chips for flavor reasons BUT both will still work! I feel as thought the white chocolate chips take away from the strawberry flavoring more than I prefer!

I will say that you must watch both the chocolate and peanut butter very closely when melting to avoid over cooking! Other than that, this is a pretty typical puppy recipes with a few NEW & DELICIOUS ingredients.

Recipe is listed below, let your girl know if you test this one out!
