Puppy Chow

The first time I had puppy chow was during freshman orientation at the University of Georgia. We were each given little baggies of this addictive dessert after touring the campus and learning the fight song.

Even after watching my Dawgs lose to Arkansas this weekend, I was feeling a little nostalgic for my time at UGA. The hubby and I were also craving something sweet so this quick dessert came to mind. The crunchy/sweet combination satisfied our craving and had us hoping that UGA will do better next time.

9 cups of Chex, or similar cereal
1 cup of chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1/4 tsp vanilla
1.5 cups powdered sugar

Put cereal in a large bowl. Melt chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter in the microwave (took me about a minute and a half). Remove from microwave and stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal and stir evenly until evenly coated. Pour cereal into a 2-gallon resealable plastic bag. Add powdered sugar, seal bag, and shake until well-coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool.

Hopefully next game will go better!
