Chex Puppy Chow... AKA Muddy Buddies

This is a recipe that we use often. Set a bowl of these on the counter... and they won't last long in my house. Especially if they're near me! They are a quick treat to satisfy that 'sweet tooth', and the kids... as well as the adults, love them!

We often make them for holiday gifts as well. They fit nicely in those cute holiday containers, and you know they never go to waste. What makes them even better... we usually have most of the ingredients on hand. Quick... easy... and budget friendly.

Puppy Chow (aka Muddy Buddies)

1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup Skippy peanut butter
1 package (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips (1 cup)
1/4 cup margarine or butter
9 cups Chex cereal (any variety)

Measure cereal into large bowl; set aside. Microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and margarine in 1-quart microwavable bowl, uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour chocolate mixture over cereal in bowl, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into large plastic food-storage bag; add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator. 9 cups snack.

*Do not use spread or tub products.

Important: Because microwaves cook differently, time is approximate.
