Popcorn Puppy Chow Snack Mix Recipe

Popcorn Puppy Chow with Marshmallows


¼ Cup Popcorn Kernels

2 Tbsp. Oil

½ Cup Mini Chocolate Chips

½ Cup Creamy Peanut Butter

1 Cup Mini Marshmallows

1 Cup Powdered Sugar

1 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder



In a medium sauce pan over high heat add the oil and 1 Popcorn Kernel and cover.  Once the kernel pops reduce heat to medium high and add the remaining kernels.  Once the popping starts shake the pan to keep the popped kernels from burning.  Once the popping slows remove from heat and remove the lid to allow the steam to escape.  Continue shaking the pan for a minute to prevent scorching or transfer to a separate bowl.

In a microwave safe bowl combine the Mini Chocolate Chips and Peanut Butter.  Microwave on high for 30 seconds.  Stir.  Microwave an additional 15 seconds and stir.  Both should be completely melted and smooth, if not, continue microwaving in 15 second increments, stirring after each, until smooth.

Add half of the Popcorn, careful not to add the unpopped kernels, Chocolate and Peanut Butter to a bowl.

Use a spatula to gently fold Popcorn to coat.

Add the rest of the Popcorn, again avoid the unpopped kernels, Chocolate and Peanut Butter and fold to coat.

Once it has cooled a bit fold in the Marshmallows.

In a small bowl combine the Powdered Sugar and Cocoa Powder.

Place ½ of the coated Popcorn into a 1 gallon resealable bag, sprinkle with ½ of the Powdered Sugar and Cocoa.  Seal the bag ensuring there is plenty of air inside and shake the bag to coat.
