Peanut Butter & Chocolate Puppy Chow

A true family favorite.  This was one of the treats I looked forward to at the holidays during my childhood.  The combination of peanut butter and chocolate simply cannot be beat.  And, that powdered sugared coating ... it's what life is all about.  (Okay, well maybe not what it's all about.  Love, happiness, health and family kind of rank up there, too, but you get the point.)


1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy)
1/2 cup butter
12 ounces chocolate chips
7 cups Chex cereal (any variety or a mixture of varieties)
2 pounds confectioner's sugar (powdered sugar)


Melt together the first three ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat.  Place the cereal in a large mixing bowl.  Pour over the melted chocolate mixture and combine to coat cereal.  Place sugar in a paper bag or very large zip-top bag.  Add in the chocolate-coated cereal.  Shake well to thoroughly coat cereal with the sugar.  Spread onto baking sheets and cool.  Store in an airtight container.
