TIPS FOR MAKING BROWNIE PUPPY CHOW

  • Whenever making puppy chow, ensure that you use a big enough mixing bowl so that you can easily stir the mixture. Something like a 13 quart mixing bowl will do great.
  • For the dry brownie mix, I used a box of fudge brownie mix. There are, of course, plenty of brownie mixes that you can choose from. Simply pick your favorite brand of mix that you can source from your local store.
  • Many recipes for puppy chow (or muddy buddies) call for vanilla extract. I didn’t feel this addition was necessary in this recipe as the brownie mix provides great flavor as is. If you feel like you would like to add vanilla extract, then 1 teaspoon will be sufficient.
