Orange Creamsicle Puppy Chow

This Orange Creamsicle Puppy Chow is sweet and crunchy with a touch of citrus. It is a delicious summer dessert idea.

Orange Creamsicle Puppy Chow

When I made my Root Beer Float Puppy Chow, I also made this Orange Creamsicle Puppy Chow, aka Orange Creamsicle Muddy Buddies. I served both of them at my Ice Cream Float Party. No one could really pick a favorite because they like both flavors. Puppy chow is perfect for parties or even for a snack. It is easy to make and very portable.

You can increase or decrease the amount of orange depending on how much of the citrus flavor you want.
