Double Chocolate Peppermint Puppy Chow

Peppermint puppy chow-1

I knew I needed a holiday version of a puppy chow and obviously, chocolate came to mind. Now I have seen white chocolate peppermint versions and I have seen milk chocolate peppermint versions. However, this one combined the best of both worlds! I recently discovered on Instagram that Hershey’s came out with a new chocolate spread and I was eager to get my hands on some. Much to my delight, I found a jar in my local grocery store. This was the perfect ingredient for this puppy chow.

Creamy Cheesy Mushroom Leek Au Gratin Potatoes


With it being close to the holiday’s, it is nice to try some different and unique recipes. I love to cook with cheese. All types, any kind. Give it to me if it has cheese.

Halloween Mummy Jalapeno Poppers


Cute foods are the best foods, right?! I think so, especially when it comes to appetizers. I mean if something is already supposed to be small then can’t it be cute right along with small. The holidays are the perfect time for cute appetizers, and I take full advantage of this glorious time of year. I get plenty of eye rolls from my husband. He just wants to eat, ya know. So this year I made something cute out of a food he likes – Halloween Jalapeno Poppers. I still got the eye rolls, but he ate all of them so I win.

As usual, there’s always a way to make these your own. I just can’t make a recipe that can’t be changed up to others personal preferences. I’m sure it’s because I’m could be what’s called a picky eater. I like options. With the Halloween Jalapeno Poppers it’s super easy to change up the eyes to any flavor you’d like. Siracha, ketchup, chocolate chips, candy eyes, olives, more peppers. Whatever you’d like! Whatever your guests like! Make some with each so you have options! Options are wonderful.
