Call it puppy chow or muddy buddies, sweet minglers or delicious mix — I simply call it perfection. Passing around a bowl full of Chex Mix has become something of a holiday tradition over the years (or at least, so the commercials would have us believe), but there's something even more enchanting about a bowl full of cereal pieces that have been given the all-star treatment and doused in melted chocolate. Bring on the gooey peanut butter and the generous sprinkling of powdered sugar — we know exactly what we're thankful for this year.

But wait, there's more. Add in lemon zest or pumpkin spice, switch out your regular chocolate for decadent mocha, or keep things simple with just a dash of cinnamon. These 12 puppy chow recipes aren't exactly what you remember from when you were a kid, but that's OK, because they're even better.
