A lot of people know that I was a HUGE Jon & Kate plus 8 fan up until its final episode a few months ago. But it was all I watched throughout my pregnancy with my daughter. Even more so when I was put on bed rest during my last month of pregnancy. I actually got this recipe from watching one those episodes. I made it all the time during my pregnancy, until I was put on bed rest. I haven't made it since then.
While searching for new recipes online, I came across a recipe for something called Puppy Chow. Its the same as my Monkey Munch recipe. I guess there were a lot of different names for this delicious, chocolatey snack. But no matter what name you call it, its always delicious.
9 cups corn Chex cereal
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1) Place chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter in a large bowl. Melt in the microwave for 1 minute. Mix thoroughly. Microwave for another 30 seconds until mixture is smooth. Stir in vanilla.
2) Pour cereal in the mixture and stir until well coated. Pour in a 2 gallon storage bag or container with a lid. Add powdered sugar and shake until well coated.
3) Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Spread mixture over the cookie sheet and cool for about an hour, until the chocolate has hardened. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
