Puppy Chow ~ Peanut Free, Dairy Free, Wheat Free and Gluten Free

Nathan has a limited snack choice with all of his food allergies and he takes a snack to school everyday, so I came up with this recipe for Puppy Chow!

The best part is you can't taste the difference between using real Peanut butter or using the Soy Butter, so it is a great safe snack even for those not allergic to peanuts. Great for a Peanut Free classroom.

"Specialty" Ingredients I use

9 cups Corn Chex™, Rice Chex™, Wheat Chex™ or Chocolate Chex™ cereal (or combination)
1 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips 
1/2 cup SunButter or WOW Butter
1/4 cup UNSALTED Fleischmann's margarine (it is dairy free) 
1 teaspoon vanilla (gluten free) 
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar 


In a large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.
In a 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave Enjoy Life chocolate chips, Soy butter and margarine uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla.
Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag. 

Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
