Popcorn Puppy Chow #SundaySupper

Popcorn Puppy Chow - A no bake, gluten free treat that takes minutes to prepare!

I’m a little too excited for the Oscars tonight. I can’t wait to watch E!’s red carpet coverage to see all the dresses. Fashion is one of the best parts of the show. I dream every year about which dress I would wear if I was attending. Which for the record, I will be one year soon. This year, the finale dress from Zac Posen’s recent runway show is kind of calling my name. It’s gorgeous.

Then there’s the show. I know Neil Patrick Harris will be an amazing host. He is so multitalented. I love hearing really inspirational acceptance speeches too. It’s so interesting that sometimes the best ones come from the people I don’t know. You know, the sound mixers and costume designers.

Popcorn Puppy Chow

I have seen a few of the movies this year. Boyhood, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Theory of Everything, Gone Girl, The Judge. I may have to check out Birdman before the show. I really loved The Theory of Everything and Eddie Redmayne’s performance. I will never understand how an actor can immerse themselves in these roles. They are so talented.

Popcorn Puppy Chow

I know you want a snack while you watch the show that can be incredibly long. I have the perfect one for you: Popcorn Puppy Chow.

Anytime we’re talking about movies, I immediately think of popcorn. But I had to do something fun with it. Puppy Chow is always a hit, and when combined with popcorn, it is a combination so addictive, you’ll devour it while you wait for the Best Picture winner to be announced way after your bedtime.

Popcorn Puppy Chow

The nutty peanut butter really shines through and adds some creaminess to the crunchy popcorn. A no bake, gluten free snack just like this is exactly what Oscar night needs.

  1. I love the Oscars too. (Hey, maybe I’ll see you there the year I go!) I thought Eddie Redmayne was brilliant too.
    Your Puppy Chow looks delicious!

  2. Love the oscars! So hard to watch with kids though 🙁 I’ll just have to make do with this yummy popcorn I guess!

  3. I’m all about the fashion! You’ll have to report back with your favorite ensemble 🙂 And I’d be thrilled to have this puppy chow on my lap while I’m watching!

  4. Munch, munch, gone!! I would love this when I am watching tonight’s Oscars!!

  5. WOW! Apparently I don’t get to the movies a lot because I’ve only seen one nominee for Best Picture. This dish would also be good enough to sneak into the theater to watch those nominees.

  6. I love the idea of popcorn in puppy chow. This is genius.

  7. Oh yummmm, Laura! PB and popcorn? Yes, please! Bet almond butter would taste great, too! P.s. Maybe we can sit together at the Oscars next year….2015 is still young…Never know what can happen this year for both of us, right?

    • I have never made puppy chow with almond butter, but it certainly seems like it would be great – maybe even better.

      I have high hopes for 2015. I felt like Graham Moore’s speech was directed at me. I’m the weird girl that doesn’t fit in. I think I would fit in with the film crowd, so I can’t give up.

  8. You have just made puppy chow even more addicting! Love it!!

  9. I would totally not be able to put this bowl down!

  10. Love the amped up popcorn….Great choice!!

  11. I would inhale the entire bowl in one sitting! Dangerous stuff 🙂

  12. I’m afraid I would never stop! Maybe I’ll have to test that theory! This looks crazy yummy!!!xo

  13. I’m amazed by the fact that you’ve watched so many of the nominated films. I haven’t watched any although I do intend to eventually. I’m always behind.
    Anyway, I love the sound of this puppy chow popcorn. Perfect movie watching snack! Yum!

  14. Movie-watching would be SO MUCH BETTER if cinemas replaced regular buttered popcorn with this puppy chow! So good.

  15. Just wow.. this is the ultimate snack option when watching any award show. Delicious recipe

  16. Oh man, this popcorn puppy chow would be dangeroussss at my house! haha I would have no self control while snacking on it while watching a movie or something!

  17. I looove NPH but didn’t see any Oscar nominated movies this year *shrug* oh well. I hope you enjoyed it!

    And this puppy chow popcorn is so so sooo smart! I wouldn’t be able to stop eating it!

  18. I could snack on this anytime!

  19. A treat that would be a hit at any celebration, red carpet or otherwise.

  20. I’ve never had puppy chow before, this looks like one heck of a way to love it!

  21. Hi Laura: Glad to see you are still creating these wonderful treats! I sure miss sampling them.

    • Thank you so much for leaving a comment, Hank! I really appreciate it. I wish I could send samples your way. Hope you are doing well 🙂

  22. This looks so amazing, I’d probably plow through the entire bowl before Neil Patrick Harris’ opening number was over!
