Puppy Chow???

 I originally posted this last year but wanted to repost it because it is one of my FAVORITE Christmas recipes! It is seriously addicting. Don't say I didn't warn you!!


I recently came across a recipe and I just knew I had to include it in my Christmas cooking repertoire because it included my favorite flavor combination... chocolate + peanut butter. Delish.... it was so easy too, so I really wanted to share it with all of you!!

Puppy Chow
(I guess it is called that because it looks like puppy chow? But after we tried it E said, "I think we should just call it heaven!" Haha)
Ingredients:
9 cups Crispix cereal
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups powdered sugar
 
1. Combine peanut butter, butter and chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl.

2. Microwave for one minute then stir to blend all ingredients thoroughly. Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Stir well.

3. Place the 9 cups of Crispix cereal in a very large bowl.

4. Pour the peanut butter-chocolate mixture over the cereal and toss evenly, making sure all the cereal gets a good covering.

5. Place the powdered sugar in a large zip-lock type plastic bag.

6. Add the peanut butter-chocolate cereal mixture to the bag, leaving enough room for the puppy chow to be shaken (you may have to divide the mixture into smaller batches, coating one batch at a time).

7. Shake the bag vigorously to evenly coat each piece of the puppy chow with powdered sugar.

8. Once the mixture is fully coated, place in a large serving bowl.

SO EASY!
THE HARD PART IS TRYING NOT TO EAT IT ALL IN ONE SITTING, HAHA!

You could also throw it in a little Christmas tin and it would make a great little gift for teachers/neighbors/co-workers!
