Cooking, Suicide Awareness and Prevention

Puppy Chow

This Puppy Chow was my friend Leigh Ann’s favorite holiday treat.  She loved it when I made this for her.  I mean, she would eat it by the pound.  Sadly, my friend’s life ended too early.  If you or your loved one suffers from depression or suicidal thoughts, please call the Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.

Her life was taken far too early.  Mental illness, toxic relationships, addiction…it all goes hand in hand.  Yet, God is bigger.  As severely as her family aches…His plan is masterful.  Today, she is at peace.

Puppy Chow

9 total cups of Chex (combine corn, rice, and/or wheat)

1 c. chocolate chips

1/2 c. peanut butter

1/4 c. butter

1 tsp. vanilla

1.5 c. powdered sugar

Pour cereal in a big bowl, or I use a double-bagged Walmart sack cause this is messy.

Combine in saucepan, on low, chocolate chips and peanut butter until melted.  Add in vanilla and then pour over the cereal.  Stir or workaround in the bag the chocolate to coat all of the cereal.  Throw in your powdered sugar and shake shake shake until the chocolate-covered cereal is covered with the powder.
