Is it too early to start dreaming about Christmas? Perhaps….. but I’m doing it anyway! The other day I was craving some puppy chow, and decided to make a rich, chocolatey Nutella version of it. Nutella makes everything taste better, it’s like magic. If you aren’t familiar with “puppy chow,” it is a snack/dessert normally made with rice cereal squares, peanut butter, chocolate and powdered sugar. In this Nutella puppy chow recipe, I skip the peanut butter and use Nutella instead. For no mess and easy cleanup, I use Hefty® Slider Storage Bags to shake up the ingredients and create this delicious Nutella puppy chow!
Hefty® Slider Bags cost less than Ziploc® Slider Bags when comparing the same size and type of bag, and you can easily find them at your local Walmart. Hefty® bags are super strong thanks to MaxLock® track design, so nothing will spill out when you are shaking up your puppy chow or later when you are storing it. These slider bags are awesome because you can use them during the Nutella puppy chow recipe creation as well as for storage later. Two for one!
