Recipe for Puppy Chow...

i had a request to share my puppy chow recipe :) its basically the same one off of the box of Chex cereal but i always use a brown paper sack to shake/coat the cereal. its quicker, less messy and a whole lot easier!

Puppy Chow

9cups Chex cereal
1cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2cup peanut butter
1/4cup butter or margarine
1teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2cups powdered sugar

Measure out cereal into a large empty brown paper sack. Set aside. In a big microwave safe bowl melt chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter for one minute. Stir. Microwave for 30 more seconds or until stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring to coat evenly. (do this quickly!) Add powdered sugar to bag, roll the top down to 'seal' the bag and shake, shake, shake! Once evenly coated, spread on waxed paper to cool.

i have to add 2 things: once you pour the chocolate mixture onto the cereal, try to work fast. the warmer the chocolate mixture is, the better the powdered sugar sticks to the cereal. and numero 2, if you use corn or rice chex then this recipe is gluten free (YAY!).

once the boys wake from there nap we're making this!
