Puppy Chow

I lived in Florida for a brief period of time and when working there I had the chance to meet a lot of great people from all over the US and eat a lot of new and 'different' foods that I had never tried before, such as deep fried pickles, sausage gravy (thinking it was a vat of oatmeal at breakfast one day I sprinkled it with brown sugar...mhmm) and puppy chow.  Puppy chow is a sweet treat that is simple to make and a sure crowd-pleaser.  It  is also great mixed with popcorn and pretzels or served on ice cream.

Makes 4 cups of chow!

4 cup Chex or Crispix cereal
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
1/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup icing sugar
*large resealable plastic bag
In a large bowl combine peanut butter, chocolate and butter.  Microwave in 30 second increments stirring after each heating, until mixture is melted and smooth.  Alternatively you could melt this mixture over a double boiler.  Add vanilla and stir to combine.  Add cereal to PB and chocolate mix and gently stir to coat cereal well.  Once cereal is well coated place cereal into large resealable bag with icing sugar.  Seal bag and shake until cereal is well coated in sugar.  Serve!
