Double Chocolate Easter Eggy Puppy Chow

Double Chocolate Puppy Chow, despite the name is NOT suitable for dogs. Also called muddy buddies, monkey munch or other cute names, it is essentially cereal covered with chocolate, icing sugar and other tasty treats.

In the past I have made regular puppy chow, with chocolate and peanut butter, white chocolate puppy chow with cranberries for a festive treat and also Biscoff puppy chow with banana chips.

 This is double chocolate Easter eggy puppy chow, as it uses both a bar of milk chocolate and a milk chocolate spread. It tastes just like a choccy egg opened on Easter Sunday morning.

For my money, and I have not been paid to say this, the best milk chocolate is Cadbury’s here in the UK – that is until Kraft, or Heinz, or whoever owns it now changes the recipe! They started with crème eggs and lets hope they don’t cheapen our beloved Dairy Milk!

The cereal is mixed with this delicious Cadbury infused lusciousness then tossed with icing sugar. Then when it has all set, I have mixed in some Easter type sweet treats – fried egg jellies, carrot shaped jelly sweets, little chocolate micro-eggs and some Easter-coloured sprinkles.

This combo is served up in a bowl for folk to snack from, or served in little baggies and handed out to kids as a treat.

This is a killer snack as it’s so addictive and chocolatey – make sure the Easter bunny doesn’t pinch any!!

Cuisine: snack Category: dessert Yields: Lots!
Prep Time: Chill Time: Total Time:
  • 300 grams malted wheat cereal, such as Shreddies
  • 55 grams unsalted butter, cubed
  • 190 grams milk chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 125 grams milk chocolate spread
  • 2 teaspoons flavourless oil, such as corn oil
  • 190 grams icing sugar
  • Oodles of Easter-inspired treats
  1. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and set aside. Place the cereal in a large plastic tub, with a sealable lid.
  2. In a large bowl, over a pan of simmering water, add the butter, chocolate and chocolate spread. Stir until melted and add the oil, stirring this through.
  3. Pour the chocolate mix over the cereal and stir until every bit of cereal is smothered in chocolate. Add the icing sugar on top. Place the lid on top of the tub then shake it vigorously for a good couple of minutes.
  4. Empty the contents on to the baking sheet and spread out. Pop in the fridge to chill, about one hour.
  5. Place the contents back into the tub and add your treats, such as mini eggs, jelly sweets, whatever takes your fancy.
  6. Pop the lid on and shake to distribute the treats through the mix.
  7. Serve the mix in small bowls or in little baggies. Enjoy!

  1. The Easter Bunny wouldn't get a look in, think I'd scoff the whole bowl really quickly!

    1. I did to my detriment - trousers are getting nippit now!

  2. Fantastic Easter treat, although I still have a moment's hesitation over the name puppy chow. In my experience puppies will eat just about anything. I'm still suffering palpitations over the crème eggs betrayal - any assault on Dairy Milk would send me over the edge.

    1. Sorry 'bout the name - not my doing! Yes let's hope they don't tinker with anymore Cadbury's chocolates!!
