Puppy Chow

Puppy Chow aka Muddy Buddies aka Monkey Munch

I associate this snack mix with Christmas time, but I'm a little early this year. A friend's husband said he loves this, so I made some to share with them.

Puppy Chow

1 box Rice Chex (you can also use Corn Chex or Crispix)
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
1 stick of butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar (or more if not fully coated)

Pour Chex into a large bowl. In a separate microwavable bowl, combine peanut butter, chocolate chips, vanilla, and butter. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir to combine. Continue heating in microwave in 30 second intervals until completely melted and combined.

Pour mixture over cereal and mix to coat. Pour coated cereal into a brown paper grocery bag. Pour in powdered sugar. Fold down grocery bag and shake until completely coated.

Spread on wax paper to cool. Store in airtight container in the fridge.
