Puppy Chow for One

It's been a rough few months. And I have a rough few more ahead of me before school is over. Some day soon, I will have only my full-time job to keep me busy.

In the meantime, I need a steady supply of snacks. And if you're like me, you'll eat exactly as much of this as you make. So in an effort to at least curb my stress eating, I decided to make a single serving at a time. That way, at least 4 minutes of preparation stands between me and more of it. Because it is so good. So full of peanut butter and chocolate, one of the best combinations that exists on earth. So addictive.

So go ahead. Join me in an attempt to eat just a little of it. And enjoy every bite.

Puppy Chow for One

1/2 cup Honey Nut Chex
1 tbsp. natural peanut butter
1 tbsp. semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 -3 tsp. powdered sugar

Melt the peanut butter and the chocolate chips together for 1 minute in the microwave. Stir the chocolate chips and peanut butter together, then add the chex. Stir to coat.

Put the powdered sugar in a small baggie. Pour the chocolate-coated chex into the bag and shake it to cover with the powdered sugar.

Store in the refrigerator...if you can wait that long to eat it.

YES! I need this kind of portion control when it comes to gluten free snacks.

I know, me too!! I will eat exactly as much as I make of most gluten-free snacks :) Thanks for your comment!

Wow! It made me want to buy gluten free snacks just by looking at your puppy chow. I can't wait for the weekend to try this recipe!
