Puppy Chow


"Puppy Chow" has become a standard snack in our holiday traditions. But it's usually made by my aunt, or sometimes my sister.

I went to make it for the first time myself as a movie-night treat, and was surprised to find I don't even have the recipe. A quick google search directed me to the Chex website, but I decided to post it on the blog so I can look it up easily next time I'm craving it.

The ton of powdered sugar in this snack means a little goes a long way, so I like to make it to share--like tonight's movie night potluck.

Ingredients
9cups Rice Chex®, Corn Chex® or Chocolate Chex® cereal (or combination)
1cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2cup peanut butter
1/4cup butter or margarine
1teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2cups powdered sugar

Preparation Directions

Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.

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.

Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
