Puppy Chow

Either this picture grosses you out, or it takes you back to 7th grade home-ec where you learned how to make friends by making treats.
I was so excited when my daughter told me she wanted to make puppy chow.  She is 13, and is just now starting to be interested in what goes on in the kitchen.  A little Betty in the making.  I love having her there to help with meals, and treats are even more fun to make together.
Puppy chow is a hit with everyone in our family and this big bowl disappeared pretty quick.  A perfect Sunday snack.
6 cups Crispix cereal
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar

*Pour cereal into a large bowl and set aside.  Melt butter, chocolate chips and peanut butter in a separate bowl in the microwave.  Stir well until all chips are melted.  Very carefully fold the chocolate mixture into the cereal.  Stir until all the pieces are coated, trying not to crunch them up.  Put the powdered sugar into a brown, paper grocery bag.  Carefully dump in cereal mixture and fold the bag securely.  Shake gently until all the cereal is covered in powdered sugar.  Turn out onto a cookie sheet to cool and then eat up!
