Vegan Puppy Chow

December 23, 2019
A family favorite treat for the holiday season has always been our homemade puppy chow (also known as muddy buddy or reindeer chow). It is an extremely simple recipe and is actually a lot of fun to make with the family! This recipe makes a large batch as well so it is perfect to take to work or family dinners to share with loved ones. It is important to note that when you purchase powdered sugar at the supermarket you want to purchase a brand that is marked "raw" or "organic". This is the only way to ensure that you are purchasing vegan powdered sugar. Hopefully, you enjoy this simple and sweet vegan treat as much as me and my family!
