These New Treats


Oh my! When I walk into the kitchen, I see some new treats sitting on the counter.


They look white and crunchy and sweet.


“Mom!” I yell. “What are these new treats? Can I have some?”


“Which ones? Those?” she asks with a sly grin. “I just made a batch of those. I call them Puppy Chow.”


“What is in them?” I ask.


“They have peanut butter, chocolate chips, and Chex mix,” she responds.


“Will you share with me?”


“Yes, I will,” she says.


“These are so yummy!” I exclaim. Then I declare them my new favorite treat.
