Valentine Puppy Chow


This Valentine Puppy Chow recipe and post is sponsored by Netflix. All thoughts, ideas, and opinions expressed are my own.

Have you made puppy chow before? I have eaten this many times, but hadn’t made it. Not only is this super easy and adorable, but it is delicious! When Kenny saw it he thought it was dog food. So I guess that is how it got it’s name? LOL!

Valentine Puppy Chow

I packed it up in little bags, that we could each snack on some valentine puppy chow during our family movie night. This week we watched The Adventures of Puss in Boots,  a brand new Netflix Original Series! I love that Netflix is coming out with all these new shows and movies for the kids. Carsyn really enjoys watching Clifford’s Puppy Days. Of course I have been watching all the Friends episodes. I really miss that show!

    This looks so yummy!

  23. Janet Potter says:

    While these snacks look delicious, I question calling them “Puppy Chow.” Sadly, there are plenty of people out there who will think these are OK for dogs!! They are NOT!!! Chocolate can kill a dog. This label is very irresponsible, and could lead to possible lawsuits.

  24. Laura says:

    Oh, I love puppy chow! This looks great!

  25. Kendra says:

    I’ve never made it but loved eating it growing up 🙂

  26. Emmy says:

  29. Holly says:
