Pistachio Puppy Chow

Pistachio Puppy Chow, also known as Pistachio Muddy Buddies, is a delicious and easy-to-make snack. It’s a sweet and salty treat with a nutty twist. Here’s how you can prepare it:


  • 6 cups Chex cereal (rice, corn, or a mix)
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup shelled pistachios, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)


  1. Measure the Chex cereal and pistachios and set them aside.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the white chocolate chips, peanut butter, and unsalted butter. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until the mixture is smooth and fully melted.
  3. Stir in the vanilla extract into the melted mixture.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, pour the melted mixture over the Chex cereal. Gently fold and stir until the cereal is evenly coated.
  5. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the powdered sugar and salt. Add the coated Chex cereal mixture to the bag.
  6. Seal the bag and shake it vigorously to coat the cereal evenly with the powdered sugar mixture.
  7. Once the cereal is well-coated, open the bag and add the chopped pistachios. Reseal the bag and shake again to distribute the pistachios throughout the mixture.

  1. Open the bag and pour the Pistachio Puppy Chow onto a baking sheet or a large piece of parchment paper. Spread it out to cool and set.
  2. Allow the Pistachio Puppy Chow to cool completely and the coating to harden.
  3. Once cooled, transfer the Pistachio Puppy Chow to an airtight container for storage.
  4. Enjoy your homemade Pistachio Puppy Chow as a snack or dessert!

Remember that you can adjust the quantities of ingredients according to your preferences. You can also add other mix-ins like mini chocolate chips, dried fruit, or even a touch of cinnamon for extra flavor.
