Hi Ruth, sorry for the confusion! Puppy Chow is a common name for a chocolate snack such as this. It definitely is for human consumption only.

I am a bit confused by the name "Puppy Chow" for this recipe. Although it sounds delicious for humans, the chocolate bits make the recipe unsuitable for consumption by puppies and adult dogs Chocolate is poisonous for dogs. Perhaps clarification or change to the recipe name is needed. .
