Puppy Chow Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies are so easy to make, kids can do it. They are tasty and make a great appetizer or party food.
Puppy Chow Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies are gluten free and somewhat addictive.
When they were young, my kids loved these little Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies. They called it "puppy chow" because it resembles dog kibble. It is so simple to make, too. You might have to help the little ones melt the chocolate mixture, but they can certainly mix it up and add the powdered sugar.
The original recipe called for Nestle Real Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels, but I prefer dark chocolate so I used Nestle Toll House Dark Chocolate Morsels. SO good! Not only are these cookies absolutely yummy, but they are also gluten free. And they make a good gift, wrapped up in a little cellophane bag, tied with a ribbon. Or serve it as a snack in a pretty bowl at a party. Definitely a winner.
I believe the recipe originally came from a teacher at one of the kids' schools.
What You Need
For this recipe, you need measuring cups, a microwaveable bowl, a big mixing bowl, a spoon or spatula to mix it, and some good coffee to offset all the sugar.
