Chex Muddy Buddies, also known as Puppy Chow

This isn’t slow food by any stretch of the imagination– it’s actually from the Chex brand website.  But it’s been around for many years– I was making this in the sixth grade for parties.  It’s easy and fun to make this with kids, and they will love it.  It’s great for parties, especially if you expect people to have the munchies…  hee.


9 cups Chex® cereal (any variety)

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Preparation Directions:

1. Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.

2. In 1-quart microwavable bowl, stir together chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Microwave uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.

3. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

By the way, as far as I can tell, corn Chex seem to be wheat-free but not gluten-free: they contain barley malt extract.
