Puppy Chow

In my family we've always referred to this as puppy chow. It also runs under the alias of muddy buddies. I generally only make this recipe at Christmas because we have a tendency to over indulge on it. We're lucky if a 3 cup batch lasts more than 2 or 3 days. . . with only my husband and I eating it. We're hogs. We know.

Puppy Chow
6 cups Chex, Crispix or other variety corn or rice cereal
6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips (1/2 bag)
1/4 c peanut butter
1 c powdered sugar
Place cereal in a large bowl. Set aside. Pour sugar into a 2 gallon ziploc bag or plastic grocery sack. Set aside. In another large bowl, microwave chocolate on high 1 minute. Add peanut butter and stir. Heat an additional 30 seconds or until chocolate is melted. Gently stir in cereal until well coated. Pour mixture into bag with powdered sugar. Seal. Toss gently to coat. Store in refrigerator. You may also use miniature pretzel twists in place of the cereal. This recipe also freezes well for later use. That is if it lasts long enough to make it to the freezer.
