This is a dessert that my aunt always made for family get togethers, and I haven't had it in years. I thought it would be a good one to check out for our party. I found the recipe online, and made a batch. The one thing I changed was to melt the chocolate/peanut butter mixture in the microwave. It was much quicker and easier than doing it on the stovetop. It turned out great! It's something that everyone I knew in the Midwest grew up with, but all of my east coast friends were a little skeptical of it. Luckily, one of Dino's coworkers' girlfriends was from Michigan, and she was really glad to see Puppy Chow, and got everyone interested in trying it...and they were glad they did!
