St. Patrick’s Day Puppy Chow
Since you guys liked my Valentine’s Day version of puppy chow so much, I decided to make a St. Patrick’s Day version. As you can probably tell given that this is my second puppy chow post in the last 3 posts – puppy chow is my new favorite thing to make. There are 3 reasons for that. 1. It’s so easy to make and change up 2. It’s delish and feels less guilty than cake 3. The hubs eats it up like crazy, which means I don’t have to do all the dirty work. Sweet!
This time I added some Baileys – oh yea! I am a big Baileys fan. And the Baileys in this is seriously awesome and really comes through. But you could easily make this without it and just have a festively colored puppy chow.
If you do use Bailey’s in it though, you MUST heat the Bailey’s and chocolate/candy melts together (like, in the same bowl at the same time) when you melt the chocolate. If you melt the chocolate and then add the Baileys, the chocolate will seize and be completely unusable. Trust me – I tested it.
The other thing is that you might be tempted to add even more Baileys, like I was. But when I added even more, the chocolate didn’t dry/harden as well and the puppy chow kind of became a big glob. So keep that in mind before you go and drown yours in Baileys. 🙂
Ok, now go make it!
This Baileys Irish Cream Puppy Chow is easy to prepare and full of flavor! With it’s green color, it’s also a perfect treat for St. Patrick’s Day!
- 5 cups rice chex cereal, divided
- 5 oz white chocolate or white vanilla candy melts
- 5 oz green candy melts (Found in craft stores like Michaels and Hobby Lobby)
- 4 tbsp Bailey’s Irish Cream, divided
- 1 cup powdered sugar, divided
- 1 cup chocolate chips
If you don’t want to purchase green candy melts, you can add green food coloring to the melted white chocolate. Start with a drop or two and increase from there to get your desired shade of green.
