Puppy Chow

Being the kitchen queen that I am, I decided to start a new blog to post some great recipes we have tested at our house.  Hopefully you will all get a kick out of this and be able to use some of these yourself!

For our inaugural post, I give you..... Puppy Chow!  A big crowd pleaser, the kids LOVE this stuff.  It is easy and fast, and great for family movie nights!  Enjoy, and let me know what you think! This is a great recipe for the kids to help with, as the only equipment used is a microwave, spoon and ziplocs!

Puppy Chow

1 cup Jif peanut butter
1 cup Country Crock butter (softened)
1 bag of Nestle chocolate chips
1 teaspoon of vanilla
9 cups of Crispix (or any rice) cereal
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar

1. Combine peanut butter, butter, chocolate chips and vanilla in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 60-90 seconds, stirring at 30 second intervals. Chocolate should be smooth and slightly shiny.

2. In a large bowl, pour in 9 cups of Crispix cereal.  Pour half of the chocolate mixture on cereal and toss gently.  Add in remainder of chocolate mixture until cereal is WELL coated.

3.  In a gallon sized ziplock, add 1/2 cup powdered sugar.  Carefully add in half of the cereal mixture.  Seal bag and shake vigorously.  Open bag, add in another 1/4 cup powdered sugar, and shake again.

4. Repeat same process in second ziplock with remaining 3/4 cup powdered sugar and remaining 1/2 of cereal mixture.

5. Let cool and enjoy!  Store tightly sealed in ziplock bags.
