Muddy Buddies

This fun party food is also called 'Puppy Chow'.  Its very easy to make, and is always a great hit.
The original recipe only calls for 9 cups of chex; you can the original recipe here.
I modified the recipe to use a whole box of chex, which is about 13 cups.

13 cups Chex cereal  (I prefer rice Chex)
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup creamy peanutbutter
3 Tablespoons butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups powdered sugar

1.) In a microwavable1-qt. bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter uncovered on high for 1 minute; stir.  Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth.  This may require stirring for several minutes.  Do NOT over cook.  Stir in vanilla

3.) Place cereal into a large bowl.  Pour chocolate mixture over cereal and stir until coated.

(Here I am stirring away!)

(The kids loved helping with this snack!)

4.) Pour the coated cereal into two gallon  zipper bags. Split the powdered sugar between the two bags.  Seal the bags well, then shake well until the sugar evenly coats the cereal.

For best taste store in refrigerator, and serve cold.
 26 servings (1/2 cup each)
