I do not know how this snack got the name puppy chow — I know when I mentioned it to my husband he thought I was making dog food

I thought of renaming this recipe but could not come up with anything of usefulness — so puppy chow it will remain

But I should comment that you should not feed this to your puppy πŸ˜‰

One thing I love about this recipe is that it is gluten – free πŸ™‚

It is also a great way to use up those candy canes – this recipe is not super sugary and would be awesome for adults to eat that do not have a huge sweet tooth

I REALLY enjoyed this mix and pretty ate the WHOLE thing on my own and ruined my dinner – I might be in my 20s but I still spoil my dinner on a weekly basis.

Big thank you to my dad who helped style the finished product picture — he kept saying ” we need more red!”

Here is him styling the chow πŸ™‚

There are pieces of candy canes in the mix as well as candy canes mixed in the powered sugar
