Bow Wow for Puppy Chow

If dogs eat this good I wanna be a Poodle in my next life!

Now we all know that this recipe isn't really for dogs as they are not to have chocolate. I am not sure where the title of this addictive treat comes from, but it is known as "Puppy Chow" in my family. (I have heard others call it "White Trash Mix" as well). Whatever you choose to call it, the fact remains, this quick and easy snack is addictively DELISH!

I love cereal and any recipe that involves Peanut Butter, Chocolate and Cereal has to be a winner in my book. Nothing is better than licking the white sugary goodness off of your fingertips after you are finished enjoying this addictive treat.

The recipe can be easily halved and keeps for days (if it lasts that long) in an airtight container kept at room temp or in the fridge during these hot months.

Puppy Chow
9 cups Crispex Cereal (Chex would work as well)
2/3 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
4 TBS butter
1 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Into large mixing bowl, measure the cereal and set aside. In medium saucepan, combine the peanut butter, butter and chocolate chips. Heat over low heat stiring frequently until all of the mixtuere is melted and creamy. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Evenly pour mixture over cereal and toss to coat completely. In a huge ziplock bag place half of the powdered sugar mixture. Toss half of the chocolate covered cereal to the bag and shake to coat. Spread coated cereal on waxed paper covered baking sheet or counter. Repeat with remaining sugar and cereal. Once mixture has cooled, store in tupperware container in fridge to keep fresh.
