  • 9 cups Chex Cereal
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine (butter will taste better)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

How to Make it:

DUMP Chex into big mixing bowl

MICROWAVE the next 3 ingredients (morsels, peanut butter, butter) uncovered in a microwave safe bowl for about 1 minute. Stir – then microwave another 30 seconds or until stirred smooth.

MIX in vanilla with melted chocolate mixture, then dump it over the Chex and gently mix until evenly coated

POUR the mixture into a 2 gallon sized locking bag and add the powdered sugar. Seal and shake until everything is covered in powdered sugar (this is what makes them “melt” in your mouth, yum!)

Serve once cooled, store in ziploc bag or an airtight container.

Gift Idea: Put these in jars with ribbons around the neck with a recipe card attached for a cute gift.

  1. it helps if you cool them first before the powered sugar. It gets messy!

  2. Puppy Chow! We used to make that ALL the time growing up! I was JUST thinking about it yesterday!

    PS – Just add milk for a REAL sugar cereal! :)~

  3. I love these I make them all the time!
