Ingredients
  • 1 (12 oz) box rice chex
  • 1 (12 oz) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (2 lb) bag powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. Start by taking the whole box of chex cereal and place it into a very large bowl. If you don’t have a big enough bowl, we always used a garbage bag growing up to mix the puppy chow together! Yes. It was a new one. 😉 Set this aside.
  2. Place chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 60 seconds and then stir until smooth. If the chocolate chips haven’t melted enough, microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until the mixture is completely melted. Then stir in vanilla extract.
  3. Pour the chocolate mixture over the chex cereal and stir together gently with a spatula. If using a garbage bag, shake gently, until all the chex pieces are completely covered in chocolate.
  4. DO NOT OVER MIX. The chunks are the best part! The cereal pieces should be completely coated in chocolate, but it’s ok for a few to clump together 😉
  5. Next, you’re going to pour in the powdered sugar. Usually, I don’t measure, but just keep pouring, mixing, and pouring more in again, until the chex is completely white! You’ll definitely have extra powdered sugar at the bottom of your bowl, but that’s nothing to complain about!
  6. Store in an airtight container!
