There are some days where I just want to indulge in a decadent and tasty dessert. While I aim to eat clean 80% of the time, I try to make the most of my 20% of fun. When Maria visited a couple of weeks ago we knew we wanted to make puppy chow. When I was at the grocery store shopping for our ingredients I saw the Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter and it hit me … what would be make puppy chow even better? Making it triple-chocolaty of course!
What came to be is easily my new favorite dessert. Ever. I already loved puppy chow but this seriously takes it to another level. Even Chris, who barely likes chocolate, gave it two thumbs up. I made it for a BBQ we went to last weekend and instantly made some new friends. It was that good 😉
The best part? It takes less than 10 minutes to make. However, unless you have insane self-control do not make this on a whim. You might eat the whole 9 cups by yourself. Save it for an event where you can share the love.
