Okay - I'm on a total sweet kick! :) I had a couple of boxes of Wheat Chex that were going to expire in mid-July. So I checked the pantry and I had all of the ingredients to whip up a batch of Muddy Buddies or Puppy Chow, as my husband calls it. I've had Muddy Buddies with Corn Chex and Rice Chex but my absolute favorite kind is made with Wheat Chex. The Wheat Chex makes this yummy treat so crunchy and delicious!!! It took just a few minutes to prepare this recipe so grab a box or two of Chex, some chocolate chips and head to the kitchen. Your sweet tooth will definitely thank you!!!
9 cups Corn Chex®, Rice Chex®, Wheat Chex® or Chocolate Chex® cereal (or combination)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1. In a large bowl, measure out 9 cups of cereal. Set aside.
2. In a 1 quart mixing bowl, combine chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave for 30 more seconds or until smooth. Stir and then pour over cereal. And mix to coat cereal evenly.
3. In a gallon-sized Ziploc bag, add half of the cereal mixture and half of the powdered sugar (3/4 cup). Shake to coat all of the pieces. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Repeat with the remaining cereal mixture and powdered sugar. When completely cool, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
