Puppy Chow

Not all recipes are new to us.

Some are a flash-back to the past;
something we had a long time ago.

Something that we ate for the first time, maybe even lived on it for awhile,
But now we never make anymore.

Matter of fact, some recipes that we share start a story with, "I remember . . . "

This little treat is one of those "I remember . . . " recipes.

I was in college when I first ate it with some friends.

One of those friends is now my Mr.!

How 'bout that!

Now that I'm trying to cook ourselves gluten-free, it has me looking back through recipes.
Which caused me to find this! 
Which will be my girl cherub's birthday treat at school on Tuesday!

Yeah, Me!

Puppy Chow

4 cups corn chex
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 TBSP butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar

Place corn chex in a large bowl, maybe even one that is fitted with a lid. (Makes clean up that much easier!).

Place chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter in a microwave safe bowl.  Melt ingredients, stopping microwave every so often to stir ingredients together  . . .as well as not to burn it!

Pour chocolate mixture over the cereal and stir well.

Dump the powdered sugar over the mixture and cover tightly with the lid (or place all ingredients in a 2 gallon ziplock bag and seal).  Shake very well!

Pour out onto wax paper and allow the treat to dry.

If there's any left by the end of the night, store in an airtight container.

This is like a family and a half serving . . .or one big boy cherub's serving!  Good thing is; it easily doubles if needed!  (And some days, it's "needed!")
