A post from Kelli–
Today has been a lazy day for me. I woke up later than planned and have had absolutely no motivation to do anything. I got up and looked around the kitchen, craving something sweet and found nothing. And then puppy chow popped into my mind! It was perfect! I had all of the things I needed and got right to work.
Puppy chow (or muddy buddies as some call it) is the perfect pick-me-up! It’s quick, cheap, and I almost always have the ingredients on hand. Here’s the recipe if you would like to make some of your own:
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 sticks of butter
1 bag of chocolate chips
Place all in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for one minute, stir, and microwave for another minute until all of the ingredients are smooth and creamy. Pour over a box of Chex and mix until all of the cereal is covered. Put in a paper bag with 2 cups of powdered sugar. Shake the bag until all of the chocolate covered cereal is covered. I have found that it is important to mix it in a paper bag so that it all remains crunchy. If you need a big brown paper bag, you can ask for a few extras the next time that you’re at the grocery store. It may also be helpful to put the brown paper bag in a plastic grocery sack while shaking it in case the brown paper bag would tear.
Final step? ENJOY!
