How many of ya'll grew up savoring decadent "puppy chow?" One of my junior high school crushes (only for a little while, because he had curls) brought an ice cream bucket full for birthdays and other occasions. The best part was finding the clusters....ohhhh.
I get to hang out with some girlfriends tonight and thought this would be the perfect dessert to share. Here's the recipe:
8 cups Rice or Corn Chex Mix, or combination of both
1/3 cup peanuts (I left them out)
1/4 cup raisins (optional--I left them out)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup peanut butter
1-1/2 to 2 cups powdered sugar
In large bowl, combine cereals, peanuts and raisins; set aside.
In small microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and peanut butter.
Microwave on HIGH 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or until smooth, stirring after 1 minute.
Pour chocolate mixture over cereal mixture;
Stir until all pieces are evenly coated.
Pour powdered sugar into large resealable plastic bag; add cereal mixture. Seal securely and shake (the fun part!) until all pieces are well coated.
Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container.
