Cake Batter Puppy Chow is a great treat and also a good way to get your kids in the kitchen. Good luck keeping your hands out of the goody bowl though!
What is this?
Our kids don’t get on the site and do a post often enough, although it is not for lack of interest on their part. They enjoy being a part of Platter Talk and as a result, the dads in the family could not be happier that our boys have an interest in this passion of ours.
Like most things in life, it’s all about timing. Finding the time, ingredients, and ultimately finding the patience.
We’ve done a couple of features showcasing the culinary talents of our junior chefs and when our fifth grader Isaiah asked if he could put something together this weekend at the cottage, my answer was an enthusiastic “Yes!” Here goes the keyboard to Isaiah and James, working together they put this little ditty together in fine order.
I got this recipe for Cake Batter Puppy Chow from school and therefore I thought it was pretty cool. My friend James came over and I thought it would be fun to make. Earlier in the day, I fished the entire time while my dads did spring yard work.
James is planning to sleepover for the night and we will have a bonfire with pizza and movies too. Overall this Cake Batter Puppy Chow was a fun dish to make, and quite tasty. It has been a great weekend at our cottage maybe we can make other good things soon.

Dads’ note: There was in fact a bonfire that ensued, along with pizza, s’mores, and a movie. Not a bad Saturday night with our boys and one of their good friends, James; as nice of a boy as you’ll ever meet.
