Nutella Puppy Chow

Hello Friends!  I’m back from the woods and had the best weekend relaxing and soaking up some nature!



Devil’s Lake, Wisconsin 6/08/13


Although I know that ya’ll are excited to hear about my camping trip, I’m sure you have also been looking forward to this recipe after I’ve been teasing you with it all week!




I made two attempts at Nutella Puppy Chow last weekend.  Both turned out addictingly good, but this recipe had a little bit of a stronger Nutella flavor.  Bonus!

Puppy Chow is always a crowd favorite, and this recipe won’t disappoint!




I recommend my favorite freezer storage method to keep things fresh and because I love that first chilled bite!




But be warned…no matter where you store it, this Puppy Chow won’t last long!

  1. […] First up was mani’s and pedi’s…followed by a little shopping.  Then a Fiesta Dinner at our house complete with Two-Ingredient Crockpot Chicken, homemade guacamole (that one of my friend’s made), Sorority Spinach Dip (we were sorority sisters, what can I say?), chips, salsa, and more!  We ate until we were full, catching up in between bites, and then retreated to the couch to relax.  It didn’t take long for big laughs to follow remembering old stories from college and looking through old photos.  For dessert, we picked at Peanut Butter Bars (my friend’s secret recipe) and Nutella Puppy Chow (recipe to come).

  2. Oh my- this looks amazing! Nutella is my biggest weakness. I’m going to have to try this after my big race!
    I’m glad you enjoyed your weekend in the woods!

  3. Putting it in the freezer is a great idea! I used to make regular puppy chow/trash (we call it trash) back in high school and loved it. I’ll have to try your version although I might end up eating every last bite of it in one sitting! 🙂

  4. I never thought of putting it in the freezer but thats a good idea. Maybe ill put it in the downstairs freezer to because there is no such thing of having just one serving of it lol

    • That is a great idea! If I had a downstairs then I would feel better about walking up and down the stairs to get each handful…ha ha! Try it and then let me know what you think!
