Dire Wolf Puppy Chow

The long lunch is almost over... time for a midday snack.

A dire wolf is man's best friend. He's friendly, loyal, energetic and very likely to bite someone's face off if they try to hurt you. Most of all, a dire wolf is soooooo fluffy! What better way to spend time with your best buddy than curled up under a blanket on the couch with a delicious snack in hand while you watch the dire wolves do their thing on Game of Thrones.

Prep time: 10-15 minutes
Feeds: a pack of ravenous wolves

(All of the ingredients pictured above used for this recipe are corn free )

roughly 9 cups of Rice Chex
1/2 cup of peanut butter
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
Two 1 gallon zip-lock bags

1. First, melt your chocolate chips in a double boiler. Don't have a double boiler? Me either. If you don't have a double boiler, you can use a glass, metal, or otherwise heat safe bowl in a pot with water. To use a bowl, make sure the bowl is floating in the water. If it is sitting on the bottom, your chocolate may burn.

2. Once the chocolate has fully melted, add the peanut butter to the double boiler and mix them together.

3.  When the peanut butter and chocolate are thoroughly mixed together, pour the rice chex into a large mixing bowl and slowly pour chocolate/ peanut butter mixture over the chex. 

4. Stir until the chex is covered with the chocolate.

5. Put half of the powdered sugar in a gallon ziploc bag and half in a second bag. Divide the mixed chex between the two bags.

6. Seal the bags and shake the mixture until it is entirely coated in powdered sugar -- add more powdered sugar if needed.

And now you have Dire Wolf chow: the perfect snack for while you read (or watch) Game of Thrones.
