Puppy Chow

This is one of those recipes that you assume everyone has had....BUT, if not, this is one you don't want to miss out on.

Even yesterday, with all of the Thanksgiving food, snacks, and desserts still out on the tables, my youngest son asked, "Where's the Puppy Chow?". It's something we have a lot during the five week stretch after Thanksgiving, through Christmas, and until New Year's.

Puppy Chow

1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1/4 cup Butter
1 cup Chocolate Chips
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
9 cups Crispix or Corn Chex cereal
1-1/2 cups Powdered Sugar

Combine peanut butter, butter and chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl.
Microwave for one minute then stir to blend all ingredients thoroughly. Add 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Stir well. Place the cereal in a very large bowl. Pour the peanut butter-chocolate mixture over the cereal and toss evenly, making sure all the cereal gets a good covering. Place powdered sugar in large container with a lid. Pour in coated cereal, seal the lid and SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE until it's well coated. Another way to do it is to put the powdered sugar in a paper sack, then pour in the coated cereal and fold down top of bag or scrunch it together at the top (hold it very securely)...then shake to coat cereal. Store in airtight container.

Note: If you happen to have kids in 4-H, Puppy Chow makes a great 4-H demonstration for the yearly demonstration contest. It's easy to demonstrate and most kids enjoy practicing for the contest because they get to eat the snack afterwards!
