Puppy Chow/ Muddies buddies Remake!

Albertson’s had a great sale on Quaker cereal a couple months ago.  Capt’n Crunch Peanut Butter was my FAVORITE cereal of all time when I was a kid.  So I bought 8 boxes.  I don’t eat it anymore because I prefer Cherrios, but I thought my boys would love it just as much as me.  Nope, WRONG!  Fast forward to this week, I am on a Muddy Buddies craze, but I am running low on Chex and need a replacement. –>Insert Peanut Butter Crunch Here<–  This is so yummy!

The Snack Bowl

Now you want to make it?

9 Cups Quaker Peanut Butter Crunch

1 Cup Semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup butter (unsalted)

1 teaspoon vanilla

1-2 cups powdered sugar

Dump 9 cups of cereal into a large bowl that has a lid.  In a microwave safe bowl measure out the chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter.  Heat for 1 1/2 minutes checking on it and stirring every 30 seconds.  Remove from microwave and stir in the vanilla.  Pour chocolate mixture over the cereal.  Stir with wooden spoon until all cereal is coated.  Sprinkle over 1-2 cups of powdered sugar,, secure lid on bowl and shake for 10- 15 seconds, open and add more powdered sugar and shake.  Repeat until the cereal is evenly coated in white.  As a warning this stuff is addictive, and since it is technically cereal, it could be considered a breakfast food. 🙂
