Disney’s “Frozen” took the world by storm when it debuted in 2013 and its popularity is still going strong. If you’ve got some Anna and Elsa fans in your home, know that you can now make “Frozen”-inspired puppy chow for a perfect a winter snack.
The blogger behind The It Mom walks readers through the simple recipe. Rather than use the traditional chocolate chips, use blue candy melts (which you can find at your local craft store or in your grocery baking aisle). You can use white and blue snowflakes, or even better use these “Frozen”-branded snowflakes, which cost less than $3 on Amazon.
Hip2Save uses white chocolate chips in its recipe, and opts for blue, white, and silver sprinkles. Instead of rice Chex, the puppy chow is made even sweeter thanks to vanilla Chex.
Or how about making snowman-themed puppy chow for those Olaf-lovers out there?
The Bearfoot Baker makes snowman puppy chow, thanks to the help of royal icing transfers in the shape of snowmen and snowmen carrot noses. (You can find the template for the royal icing transfers here.)
For kiddos who love Sven, you can make reindeer puppy chow! This recipe from Brown-Eyed Baker calls for Chex, Cheerios, pretzels, peanuts, and red and green M&M’S.
Of course, if you want to make sure that this Sven puppy chow really looks the part, ditch the red and green M&Ms (which are more appropriate for the holidays), and opt for blue and white M&Ms.
You can even throw in some aqua and light purple M&Ms to really bring in the classic “Frozen” colors. (You can find any color combo you want on Amazon!). The result is a sweet-and-salty snack mix that looks like it was shipped straight from Arendelle. Yum!
Whether you call the recipe muddy buddies, puppy chow or monkey munch, the classic Chex treat never gets old. It’s easy enough for kids to make on their own, but satisfying for adults with a crunchy snack food craving. Enjoy!
