Puppy Chow

only slightly adapted from the back of the Chex box

yield 15-20 servings

  • 9 cups Corn Chex (I label checked and the whole wheat ones were way more calorie dense)
  • 1 cup grain sweetened chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup light whipped butter
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • dash vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. Measure 9 cups of cereal into the biggest bowl you have, set aside.
  2. Melt butter, pb, and chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Stir in dash vanilla.
  3. Pour melted chocolate mixture over Chex, stirring constantly until evenly coated.
  4. Pour into huge bag (I use a clean trash bag. Please, don’t use a dirty trash bag. Or at least, if you do, don’t offer me any) and pour powdered sugar on top. Shake it like a polaroid picture. Or like a salt shaker.
  5. Spread onto wax paper to cool.
