Dragon Chow Recipe

Making Dragon Chow is one of the easiest and fun ideas I’ve ever had making a new spin on an old classic. I used Cinnamon extract to give it a more cinnamon flavor and of course mixed in two different candies to make it even more unique. This will be a unique treat for any Dragons Race to the Edge Party! Just be sure that you make sure you guests don’t have an allergy to peanuts before you make up your Dragon Chow with peanut butter! 🙂 

Iingredients

9 cups Chex Cereal (Cheap brand is fine)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon extract (to make it hotter)

1 package Hot Tamales

1 package Red Hots 

Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.
In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Then mix in a box of Tamales and a package of Red Hots. 

Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

If you wanted to “cheat” you could even use the pre-packaged Chex Mix that they sell in stores, you just wouldn’t be able to add the cinnamon flavor into the Chex mix itself.

Then, I took the package of red hots and mixed them into the “puppy chow”. Making it just a little more colorful and of course a little more hot with cinnamon throughout! 

Dragon Chow Hot Tamales

After that, I then mixed in the package of Hot Tamales to make it even more unique. Then I sat Toothless by it to watch to make sure no one ate it until after I completed my pictures. I will say that the kids we had over loved the Dragon Chow and just left me with a bowl that had powdered sugar pieces left in it! 😉 

Don’t forget to check out Dragons: Race to the Edge on Netflix and whip up some Dragon Snot for your party
