Puppy Chow (For People)

.
I'm sure everyone already knows how to make Puppy Chow, but just in case there's someone out there who hasn't tried it before I'm going to post it.  If you haven't tried it, you're going to want to - this stuff is good!
.

.
Ingredients:
.
- 9 cups Crispix (You could also use Wheat Chex or Corn Chex but I think Crispix is the best)
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (one 11.5 oz. pkg.)
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
.
First, measure cereal and put into large bowl.  Set aside.
.

.
Next, in a microwaveable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter for 1 minute.  Stir.  Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until the mixture can be stirred smooth.
.

.
Stir in vanilla.
.

.
Pour mixture over cereal and stir until evenly mixed.  This part is a little messy and you need to be careful not to crush the cereal when stirring!
.

.
Pour into 2-gallon resealable Ziploc bag.  Add powdered sugar and shake bag until well coated.
.
Spread out on wax paper or parchment paper until cool.
.















.
Enjoy!  Be careful though, this is extremely addicting!

Saw your post at Clover Lane and stopped by. Believe it or not I have never tried puppy chow. I will be showing this recipe to the girls and we will give this a go. I may as well add another addiction to the already long list. (when I saw the chocolate chips involved I knew it was my kind of recipe) Thanks for posting.

I've never even heard of puppy chow- looks similar to something called muddy buddies but that uses powered sugar to coat the cereal after the PB and Chocolate.

BTW- your pictures are all wonderful! Everything looks so good.
