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.


  1. i picked up some chex to make this...and i too have the SAME problem with eating it all, so ive been holding out! its SO GOOD!

  2. we love puppy chow, too!

    I bought some chex this week 'cause they were on sale AND I had a coupon. I also happened to buy powdered sugar, since Christmas is around the corner. The kids were just SURE we were having "something that started with 'uppy' and ended with 'ow'"
