What’s this? Another sugar-laden crispy-delicious chocolate-enrobed Puppy Chow recipe, despite the fact that we’re not even two weeks into 2013?
Yep. Absolutely. Of course. Really, you should’ve known better than to expect talk of detoxes and juice fasts here. If there’s one thing you can trust never to have to deal with on my blog, it’s language that equates food with guilt, moralistic “cleansing”, or body-shaming. That ain’t my bag, baby.
Therefore while I do love vegetables trulymadlydeeply, and am currently obsessed with tossing roasted, raw, and/or steamed veggies with a combination of nutritional yeast, ground flax, and olive tapenade, I fully intend to keep up my chocolate intake throughout January (and every other month this year).
And so: Nutella Puppy Chow, aka How To Use Up The Rest Of The Box Of Chex Cereal Originally Purchased For The Other Puppy Chow Recipe. In order to counter Nutella’s extra sweetness, I made sure that half of the chocolate used in this version was unsweetened (Baker’s brand) chocolate. It worked a treat.

…and closer to this (though with snow, now):
Fingers crossed that the next four months bring magic. I’ve been in a bit of a holding pattern lately, and would very much like to find a path for my feet to tap-dance on again. Or, at the least, to walk down tentatively, purposefully, and with hope.
