This is a delicious treat - sweet snack mix for humans known as "Puppy Chow" named because it resembles the dog food. If you can get past that....(it took me 2 years to be able to do that), try it! Delicious. Kind of like a crispy Reeces.
We call it Chocolate Chex or Cocoa Crispies around here and it goes like hot cakes....
Easy recipe, can be found on the Chex website under Chex Muddy Buddies. Simple to make.
Here is the way to do it:
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
9 cups Chex Mix (any flavor, wheat, rice or corn)
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Melt butter, chocolate and peanut butter in microwave for about 60 seconds, stir and cook another 10 seconds, stir and repeat until smooth.
In a large bowl, place Chex mix.
Pour melted mixture over Chex mix and carefully stir, trying not to break the Chex.
Now, there are 2 ways to do the next step-
Quick way - sprinkle powdered sugar over chocolate covered Chex mix and stir until combined.
Put in airtight bowl or bag.
Longer method - place chocolate covered Chex Mix in large 2 gallon plastic bag. Sprinkle in powdered sugar. Seal bag and shake.
Store in covered container.
