I love Puppy Chow (or Muddy Buddies...whatever you want to call it). I don't make it very much because between me and Hubby, it's gone within a day or so.
About a year ago, I was having a serious craving for some of that chocolaty, peanut butter goodness and went to my cupboard to discover that, alas, I only had 1/2 bag of chocolate chips on hand. Being desperate, I improvised and I loved the results so much that it's the only way I make it now.
Butterfingers Puppy Chow
1 stick (1/2 cup) of butter
1/2 bag of semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 bag of butterscotch chips
1 cup of crunchy peanut butter
9 cups of Chex cereal
2-3 cups of powdered sugar
Melt butter in a saucepan on the stove or in a microwave safe container in the microwave. Stir in the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, and peanut butter. Continue cooking until all ingredients are melted together. Put the Chex cereal into a large covered bowl and pour the chocolate mixture over the cereal. Fold the chocolate mixture into the cereal, making sure that all the cereal is coated. Let cool for about 15 minutes (if you do this, you won't have to use quite as much powdered sugar since it won't get soaked into the chocolate as much). Add the powdered sugar to the cereal in the bowl and put the lid on. Shake the bowl until the cereal is coated. Cool until chocolate is set and enjoy!
