Nutty Buddies

 
I have a page on my Marian Allen, Author Lady blog called Recipals, which is a dozen recipes I got from friends. This was the December, 2008 entry. Jessica is the now the mother of our only great-grandchild. 
 
This treat is probably something Mrs. Brandt would have made for the kids at the Home where Mitch, the main character in my paranormal suspense novel, A DEAD GUY AT THE SUMMERHOUSE, grew up.
 
My terrific granddaughter, Jessica, brought this recipe over and we made it together. Fun AND yum.

Muddy Buddies
  • 9 cups Chex cereal (any variety)
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup margarine or butter (do not use soft spreads)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Measure cereal into a very large bowl (or use your largest pot). Heat chocolate chips, peanut butter and margarine in 1 quart saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently until melted. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Pour chocolate mixture over cereal in bowl. Stir until evenly coated. Pour into a large plastic food-storage bag; add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container.
