Instructions for preparing Hazelnut latte puppy chow

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Measure out rice cereal into a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Spread hazelnuts in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and roast in oven for 12-15 minutes, until toasted and fragrant.
  3. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
  4. When hazelnuts are cool enough to handle, spread them onto a large kitchen towel and roll them around with your hands to remove the skins.
  5. Discard skins and transfer hazelnuts to a food processor or high-powered blender.
  6. Add Mexican Vanilla Gourmet, coffee extract and salt.
  7. Blend 7-10 minutes until hazelnuts reach a creamy, buttery texture, stopping to scrape down sides as needed.
  8. Combine hazelnut latte butter and white chocolate chips in a double boiler over medium-high heat, stirring until the white chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth.
  9. Fold hazelnut white chocolate mixture into the cereal.
  10. Once combined, toss cereal with powdered sugar and cinnamon until well coated.
  11. Let cool and store in an airtight container until ready to serve.
