As we mentioned in Superbowl Snacks: Rolo Pretzel Delights, we are really excited for the Superbowl! The Superbowl would not be fit without some snacks to munch on, so here is the recipe for the last snack we plan on taking to our Superbowl parties: Puppy Chow.
Source: Adapted by Chex Mix
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
9 cups original/plain ChexMix square cereal
2 cups powdered sugar
Pour the nine (9) cups of original/plain Chex Mix square cereal into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, melt the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter/margarine in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring frequently to avoid burning. Remove the bowl from the microwave as soon as the chocolate chips have melted. Add and stir in the vanilla extract.
Next, pour the melted chocolate mixture into the large bowl of Chex Mix square cereal, making sure to coat the cereal mix with chocolate (using a spatula to disperse the chocolate is best).
Lastly, pour the powdered sugar into a 2-gallon ziplock bag and proceed to spoon in the chocolate-covered Chex Mix cereal. Seal the ziplock bag and shake it to thoroughly coat the cereal mixture with powdered sugar.
