I love chocolate and peanut butter. And if they are put together, my fingers automatically reach for it. Which is why the Chex Mix Puppy Chow is a Jubilant favorite. It is often called Muddy Buddies. I was thinking of making it for Thanksgiving since there will be a number of kids at our celebration. Hey it can't all be meat and potatoes can it?
9 cups Rice Chex®, Corn Chex® or Chocolate Chex® cereal (or combination)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1. Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.
2. In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
3. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
Easy. And the results are sooooo yummy!
Counting it all chocolatey joy,
