Puppy Chow

It doesn't sound like it would be delicious, does it? But believe me when I say it is addicting stuff! This is a great and easy snack to make for the holidays. Make a bag for home, one for the office, and one to take to the inlaws. Everyone will enjoy snacking on it before and after the big turkey dinner!

9 cups chex
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1.5 cups powdered sugar

In a saucepan or microwave safe bowl, slowly melt your chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter. You'll need to stir this quite often. When it's all melted together, remove it from the heat and add your vanilla.

In a large bowl, pour your cereal. Pour the warm chocolate/peanut butter mixture over the cereal, and then pour all of it into a large ziploc bag. The ziploc bag should have your powdered sugar in it. Seal the bag and toss to coat it all.

*This can be a cute teacher's gift if bagged into small baggies, tied up with a cute ribbon and placed in a coffee mug. It is also cute when placed in a mason jar with a square of Christmas fabric over the lid. You can attach the recipe as the gift tag.
