My husband and I are always craving a treat at the end of the day. Mostly because we are rewarding ourselves for getting through another day as new parents! Hopefully this habit will die soon, otherwise we are in big trouble! I love this classic recipe – we figured since we are well into the fall season and headed towards another holiday we would whip up a batch of this delicious puppy chow!!!
This is the perfect treat to put into a little goodie bags and share with friends and family! They are bound to love it! I placed a bunch aside and put them into these fun paper bags and wrapped them with festive twine. All I need to do is write a little personalized note and pass them around!
9 cups Rice Chex Cereal (*optional: substitute for Life cereal)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (*optional: substitute for Nutella)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1. Pour cereal into a large bowl and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set both aside for later use.
2. In a large pot on medium heat, combine the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter for 1 minute; stir often. Keep on heat until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon zip-top food-storage plastic bag.
3. Add icing sugar. Seal the bag tightly shut and shake until everything is well coated. Spread the mixture out onto prepared baking sheet to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator. Enjoy!
