Back to school is almost here for my kiddos! I’ve been working on a list of snacks to make for them since I know they’ll both need something during the day and then something after school. The camp they go to provides breakfast and two snacks daily, so I’ve gotten off pretty easy this summer. Now with less than 2 weeks until school starts, I need to get back to making sure they have something nutritious and healthy to eat throughout the day.
My kids love snacks. They’d rather eat snacks instead of meals, so I need to get creative with my recipes. I decided to whip up a batch of puppy chow for them to enjoy. While it’s not the healthiest snack, it’s a little sweet treat and after a small bowl, they’re usually good. I enjoyed the snickerdoodle flavor and was a nice change from the puppy chow I’ve made in the past.
6 cups Rice Chex cereal
1 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
In a large bowl, add the cereal. In a large plastic bag, mix together the sugars and cinnamon; set aside. Using a double boiler or microwave, melt the white chocolate. Pour the melted chocolate over the cereal and stir to coat. Transfer the cereal to the bag with the sugar/cinnamon mixture and shake until the cereal is coated. Pour onto a baking sheet to allow to cool.
