Chocolate Coffee Toffee Puppy Chow is a tasty coffee flavored snack. Because it’s easy to modify this recipe, it’s also a great gluten free treat for all of your gluten free guest.
We start by combining Chocolate Chex Cereal and Cinnamon Chex Cereal with pretzels and pecans. (I used organic pecans from my parent’s farm). Once these ingredients are mixed well it is topped with a coffee flavored chocolate sauce.
Next, add miniature marshmallows and Health Bit candy. When everything is mixed well, divide the mixture and place it into two wax paper lined jelly roll pan and cool. Top it all off with a sprinkle of powdered sugar; gently stir the sugar in.
It’s really easy to adjust the coffee flavor. If you aren’t a big fan of coffee you can simply leave the coffee out. However, if you love coffee, so go ahead and add a little extra to make a stronger coffee flavor.
This puppy chow makes a nice DIY gift idea. Simply place some of the Puppy Chow into clear plastic treat bags and give it as a yummy DIY gift. Surprise a co-worker, a sibling, a parent or grandparent, or anyone with a bag of this puppy chow. Furthermore, take along a cup of their favorite flavor of hot coffee and now you really have a great combo!!! It’s sure to put a smile on their face.
A fun way to serve this treat is to place the puppy chow into a clear glass bubble bowl and allow your guest to bag some up as a fun snack to take home with them.
I added fun stickers to my treat bags and topped them off with a cute little ribbon bow. I also found these super cute Chalkboard Labels that would be an adorable addition too! You can even write your own message on them and use them for any type of labeling.
I gave some of this puppy chow to my grandchildren and thought maybe they would not like it because of the coffee. However, just the opposite! They didn’t seem to mind the coffee flavor at all because they gobbled it right down!
Feel free to be creative and add additional ingredients such as M & M’s, chopped peanut butter candy bars, candy sprinkles, flaked coconut, dried fruit, peanuts, etc…. but be sure to use gluten-free ingredients if you add additional ingredients and need this to be a gluten free snack.
Puppy Chow is probably one of the most versatile snacks you can make because of the wide variety of flavor combinations.
