Puppy Chow (aka Muddy Buddies)
I remember eating this for the first time when I was in 8th or 9th grade. A friend had brought it to a class party and called it Puppy Chow. I thought it was one of the best things I had ever eaten. I don't make it very often because I'm apt to eat the whole batch without blinking an eye. It is just so good.
I made it for Marissa's birthday party (101 Dalmatian party) for the girls to munch on....but they weren't very big eaters and lucky for me, we had a lot left over!
Recipe: (from Chex box)
9 c. Chex cereal (rice or corn, I used rice)
1/4 c. butter
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. peanut butter
1 t. vanilla
1-1/2 c. powdered sugar
In a microwaveable bowl, melt butter, chocolate chips, and peanut butter. Stir until smooth and add vanilla.
Pour Chex cereal into a large bowl. Drizzle chocolate mixture over slowly, stirring well until all the cereal is coated.
Pour half of cereal into a gallon-sized ziplock bag. Add half of the powdered sugar and shake well until all cereal is coated. Pour onto a wax-lined sheet to dry and repeat with remaining cereal and powdered sugar.
Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for longest storage.
