Pork Rind Puppy Chow

Pork Rind Puppy Chow

When I was a kid my sister taught me how to make Puppy Chow. It was a crispy snack made with peanut butter and chocolate. It was so good and really easy to make. I was pondering how to make a keto Puppy Chow and my Pork Rind Cereal has been such a hit, I thought I would try to make Pork Rind Puppy Chow!

This Pork Rind Puppy Chow is amazing! Personally, I do not like plain pork rinds, I find the flavor of most unappealing. However, the combination of peanut butter, butterscotch and chocolate make this keto treat irresistible!

I did a podcast with the Gold Metal Olympic athlete Ben Greenfield and he introduced me to this Butterscotch Toffee Stevia and I have been addicted ever since!

Most of you know that I grew up on cereal and skim milk which is a terrible way to increase blood sugar and cause metabolic syndrome. BUT if you use this keto puppy chow with a cup of unsweetened almond milk it not only tastes amazing it also will also keep your blood sugar stable and in a healthy range.

    What does it net out to in terms of fat and carbs. I’m looking for something that is hand to mouth while I’m working and stressing. Right now there is a candy dish that is for the office that sits on my desk. Thanks.

  • Lisa Peek says:

    Is that 7 carbs per serving?

  • Kathy says:

    Maria, I just listened to the Ben Greenfield podcast a few days ago! Great job! I really enjoyed it. I was thinking about getting the butterscotch toffee stevia, too, so I think I will now to make your puppy chow for the kiddos. Also, just picked up your Keto Restaurant Favorites cookbook at Costco. I’m looking forward to making some new meals for my family. I appreciate the pictures you’ve include for each recipe, they’re beautiful, as well as the stories and tips you’ve added. Thanks!

    A little confused about directions. Is the peanut butter mixture poured over both bowls of pork rinds then the 2nd half of mixture with cocoa poured over both bowls, stirred and then combined? Love idea of this, just want to get it right.

  • Carla says:

    The link for the butterscotch extract has this listed for ingredients… Ingredients
    Water, propylene glycol, sugar, ethyl alcohol, xanthan gum, beet juice, Red 40, Blue 1, citric acid, polysorbate 80, natural and artificial flavoring. Gluten Free

    Just checking as some ingredients are not very good & wondering if that is the right link for your recipe? Love butterscotch!! Is there anything butterscotch that would have “better” ingredients? Love all you share, recipes, info, etc!!

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      I prefer extracts with glycerine instead of propelyne glycol. But, unfortunately I haven’t found a butterscotch extract without propylene glycol. But this recipes uses a small amount so I think it it ok. 🙂

  • Deborah says:

    I’m adding this for portable lunches next week. I don’t have butterscotch flavoring so I think I’ll try subbing caramel flavoring and will repot back. BTW — ordered your Restaurants book and it should arrive on Monday! Thanks a million to you and Craig for your wildly kind and generous hearts! ⭐️

  • Darlene says:

    Are any pork rinds ok or are there specific brands we should look for/avoid?

  • Carol says:

    I’m confused about the peanut butter and peanut butter flour in another recipe I want to try…I thought we couldn’t have peanuts…

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      Depends on your goals. If weight loss is a goal we have most go nut free. But if it isn’t some nuts can be fine.

  • Patricia Janz says:

    I love divinity fudge and was going to try to make it with swerve but what can I use for corn syrup?? help

  • PMK says:

    OH my goodness! If my 3 year old granddaughter knew about puppy chow I would be making it right now just to keep the peace. She is crazy about pork rinds (she calls them crunchy things) but pork rinds with nut butter AND chocolate? She will be ecstatic.
