Biscoff Puppy Chow

I seem to be on a bit of a puppy chow lately.  After making a batch of my favorite classic puppy chow and later using some of it to make these stellar brownies, a delicious little lightbulb suddenly went off in my head:

Why not try making puppy chow with Biscoff spread in place of peanut butter?!?!?

This of course necessitated making yet another batch of puppy chow STAT.

And now, I recommend you do the same.  :)

The creamy, cinnamon cookie goodness of the Biscoff paired perfectly with the chocolate and powdered sugar.  And of course, the cereal gave the chow it’s classic crunch.  I couldn’t stop snacking on it while photographing!  So I ended up taking the batch to my new coworkers (already love them!!) at Hallmark, and they graciously helped me polish it off.

Cheers to even more puppy chow love!

Biscoff Puppy Chow

Biscoff kicks puppy chow up another notch...if that was even possible!


  • 9 cups corn, rice, or wheat Chex cereal (or a combination)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup Biscoff creamy spread
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


In a 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on “High” for 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla (optional). Pour in the cereal, stirring carefully until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.

Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well-coated. Store in an airtight container/bag in the refrigerator.

***Please note that this recipe is for humans to enjoy only!!!  Any form of chocolate is no good for pups.***

    This is ridiculously amazing. So, so much fun! Now I wish I had some!

    YUM! Unfortunately me and puppy chow are not good for each other. I will end up eating all of that by myself (probably in one sitting)!

    A friend of mine used to make this for our girls movie nights, but the biscoff is a great update! Fun :)

    Oh, man, I think you’re on to something! This sounds amazing!!! I have Biscoff just waiting for this :)

  12. Joanne — July 21, 2012 @ 11:56 am (#)

    You’re basically the devil AND a genius, right? This sounds amazing! Biscoff makes everything better, I’m convinced.

    You know I’m board with anything involving biscoff!

  15. ronda — July 24, 2012 @ 8:42 am (#)

    This sound soo good. I can’t wait to try it out myself.

  16. Erin @ Texanerin Baking — July 25, 2012 @ 2:17 pm (#)

    After your last puppy chow post, I searched for Chex Mix and I was not successful. :( Now I need to find it even more! This sounds amazing. :)

  17. Gina — July 25, 2012 @ 6:08 pm (#)

    Oh, YUM! I wanna make.

  18. Ann — August 12, 2012 @ 6:16 pm (#)

    Boy! What a dummy I am! I kept thinking all these recipes on Pinterest for ‘puppy chow” were for dogs.. till I finally read this recipe. Duh! This sounds like a great Christmas home made gift idea!

    Is it possible to make this recipe without butter and with an extra tsp of vanilla? A friend gave me this recipe but with these minor changes.

    I love puppy chow and I love Biscoff, what a great idea to combine them! (I think Biscoff would taste good on or in anything though :) )

  22. Amy P. — January 16, 2013 @ 7:51 pm (#)

    Oh, the synchronicity of it all! I just received a jar of Biscoff spread (which, by the way, I’m eating by the spoonful) in a Christmas gift basket and this is the first result I clicked on when I searched “peanut free puppy chow.” Perfection. Thanks!

  23. Luv What You Do — July 20, 2013 @ 8:52 pm (#)

    I have a jar of Biscoff and had puppy chow in mind for sure!
    Can’t wait to try it…my mouth is watering just thinking about it : )

    I found some cinnamon chex, do you think that will work well? These look amazing and I can’t wait to try it

    • Ali — November 9th, 2014 @ 9:05 pm

      Sure, I think those would be great!

    Very easy and delicious.  A great alternative to anyone with peanut allergies.  I learned that adding vanilla to the microwaved Biscoff/chocolate mixture makes it a bit less creamy and thus a little bit more difficult when combining the Chex mix.

    Also, I shook this mixture up in a paper bag.

    I Have found Biscoff at Trader JOe’s. Love the cookie butter

    Also good in oatmeal cookies
