Four Foods on Friday

I know it's not usually Friday when I post this because I've become a procrastinator as of late. If you want to join in and participate on this Friday activity, go visit Fun, Crafts and Recipes. Val will post a new recipe almost everyday if not everyday.

#1. What’s your favorite beverage containing chocolate or chocolate flavoring?
I don't usually drink a chocolate beverage but I have to say that good ole chocolate milk is the best. Although I've also recently discovered a chocolate chip ice cream type drink at Starbucks which is quite delicious.

#2. What’s your favorite chocolate bar? OR Share a pic of your favorite candy, chocolate or otherwise.
I love Dove dark chocolate. It's scrumptious!

#3. What’s the most unusual thing you’ve ever eaten that had chocolate in it?
I don't recall anything that I've eaten as unusual, much less with chocolate. But I find chocolate cereal a little unusual.

#4. Share a recipe using chocolate.
Who doesn't love "Puppy Chow" or as I've also heard it called... "white trash"?

Puppy Chow

9 cups Chex cereal (any variety)
1 t. vanilla
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips
½ c. peanut butter
¼ c. butter or margarine
1 ½ c. powdered sugar

Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside. In 1-quart microwavable bowl, stir together chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Microwave 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. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

hmmmm... Dove is meltingly good. With dark, I can even call it health food.

I haven't had puppy chow in ages. My mom used to make it for road trips when we were little!

I've never heard of that kind of puppy chow, but I've copied the recipe. Sounds yummy!
