Rachael's Gooey Chex Mix from the last post looks so good, doesn't it? It reminded me of my kids' absolute FAVORITE treat: Puppy Chow (also known as Muddy Buddies). Which are well known, but are good enough for a repeat. Sorry about no picture, but we had birthday cake last night so I get no sweets for a week!
9 cup Chex
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
Put cereal in large bowl. Melt chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.Pour over Chex cereal, put into a large plastic bag with powdered sugar and shake well to coat. (Got a huge Tupperware bowl? You can shake the powdered sugar on in that, too.)
Spread mixture evenly on wax paper and allow to cool. Hungry little bellies can't wait? Put it in the freezer for 20 minutes.
**Ok, wanna make it ten times better? Mix in mini pretzels!
**Want it fifty times better? Skip the Chex altogether and make it pure pretzels. So, so, so good.
