Puppy Chow (for humans)

A few weeks ago we were having a potluck at work.  It was 12pm on a Sunday and I needed to have something ready to go by 3pm and I wanted to have a nap...  Quick and easy was the order of the day.  Thankfully I remembered a box of Chex that I had sitting in my pantry - 10 minutes later I was off to dreamland!

This is a super simple recipe that is open to many adaptations.  Have fun!

Puppy Chow

  • 9 cups Chex cereal (any kind)

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted (6oz.)

  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter, melted

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

  • 1 -2 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

  • *Measure the cereal into a large bowl.
    *In a microwave safe bowl combine chocolate chips, butter, and peanut butter.  Microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until melted.
    *Stir in vanilla.
    *Pour over bowl of cereal and mix until coated.
    *Place 1/3 of the coated cereal in a large ziptop bag.  Pour in 1/3 of the icing sugar and shake to coat.
    *Spread on waxed paper to cool (can be put in the fridge to speed the process).
    *Repeat the icing sugar step until all the cereal is used up.
