- quick recipe of the week -

Happy Monday!

Since we're on our little vacay right now, today's recipe is an old archived one, but it's a good one! It probably would have been more timely to share this one with you during the holidays as that's when I made it and it was perfect to have around the house during Christmas when everyone indulges, but alas, anytime can be a good time for a quick and easy sweets recipe right?

Okay, so it's not the most original recipe, but there's gotta be some people out there who still haven't heard of it...if so, this one's for you guys!

Puppy Chow
9 cups Chex cereal
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips or baking chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
1.5-2 cups powdered sugar

Melt the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter in a pot over the stove, or in the microwave. Add the vanilla to the mixture. Pour Chex cereal into a large mixing bowl and pour the chocolate mixture over the Chex. Mix gently until cereal is fully coated with chocolate. Pour powdered sugar into a large ziploc bag. Spoon the Chex in to the bag and shake until coated with powdered sugar. Cool and enjoy!

Seriously, this stuff is addicting! I had to send a bunch of it with Matt to work so the guys there could eat it, just so it wasn't in the house. And I'm not even huge on sweets, so that's saying a lot! It's yummy stuff. You gotta make at least one batch...just one, to say you tried it. You'll be in heaven!
