YIELD: 8-10 cups

The Medjool dates in this Chocolate Peanut Butter Date Puppy Chow recipe are a delicious addition to this sweet snack.

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Chocolate Chips or melting wafers (we did a mixture of milk chocolate and semi-sweet chips)
  • ¾ Cup Peanut Butter
  • 3 Tbsp. Unsalted butter
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 Box Chex Cereal (roughly 8 cups)
  • 1 Cup Natural Delights Medjool Dates, Chopped
  • 2 ½ Cups Powdered Sugar

Preparation

  1. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate, peanut butter, butter and vanilla extract (We did it in 30 second bursts)
  2. Pour the Chex into chocolate mixture and carefully coat the Chex as much as possible.
  3. Place half the powdered sugar into a extra-large Ziplock bag or 2 large zip locks and using a slotted spoon, transfer the coated Chex into the Ziplock.
  4. Place the remaining powdered sugar over top, close the bag and shake until the Chex is fully coated in the powdered sugar. You may have to your hand over the bag to break up larger clumps and then shake again.
  5. Transfer mixture to serving bowl and add in chopped dates, mix to distribute throughout and enjoy!

*While Medjool dates are high in natural sugars, they are low on the glycemic index thanks to a balanced amount of soluble fiber. The complex carbohydrates found in Medjool dates are digested at a slower rate, making them a source of dietary fiber and releasing energy to the body over a longer period of time.
