Nutella Puppy Chow

I don't know who thought of this first but...amazing! This is the best and most dangerous combination I have found thus far.

Warning: Eat with friends or you may hazardously consume the whole bowl.

Nutella Puppy Chow
By: Healthy Tasty Chow


1/2 cup butter
1 cup Nutella
3/4 cup chocolate chips (use semi-sweet or dark, milk would be far too sweet and you’d lose the chocolate flavor)
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
2/3 cup hazelnuts
13 cups or one 12oz box of hearty wheat/corn/rice cereal like Crispix or Chex – try to find a hearty version so it doesn’t break down when stirring (try to find one without preservatives, just read the ingredients on the side of the box)
3 cups powdered sugar


In a 350 degree preheated oven, roast hazelnuts until fragrant and light brown, about 8 minutes
Allow to cool and remove as much of the skin as you can with a towel
Grind finely in a food processor, if you don’t have one, a coffee grinder should work
Put the cereal in a large bowl
On a pan over medium-low heat, melt butter, chocolate, and white chocolate, stirring constantly
When all is melted, remove from heat and add Nutella and stir until mixed in, then add hazelnuts and stir well.
Slowly pour over cereal, wash your hands, and stir with your hands! It’s much easier than with a spoon. This may take some time since the batter is thick, but if you’re patient, you’ll get the lovely thickly coated ones. The cereal that breaks clumps together with the topping and there’s no harm done in that!
Wash those hands and add the cereal to a gallon sized plastic baggie, add the powdered sugar and shake shake shake! I like to start with less powdered sugar and slowly add it – too much powdered sugar and that’s all you taste! You just want that white coating right after the light brown stage – not to over-do the sweetness.
