Minty Puppy Chow Shamrock Mix

I decided to venture off and try a new cooking activity in my class and it ended up being one of my favorite desserts! Let’s be real…..everyone loves puppy chow! You just can’t go wrong! Well this minty puppy chow took it to a whole new level! We made this in my class for St. Patrick’s Day, but you can make it any time of year! It reminded me of thin mint cookies! So just think thin mints meets puppy chow! YES! It was amazing. Try it yourself…..it is almost TOO EASY to be this good! You only need 3 ingredients to make the puppy chow.
