Chex Muddy Buddies

All you need is 15 minutes and you have a really fun treat that everyone enjoys!

What you need:

9 cups Chex cereal -- any kind (1 box is a little more that 9 cups)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powered sugar

Here is what you do:

1. Measure out cereal into a large bowl and set aside.

2. In a 1 quart microwaveable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave for 30 more seconds and stir again. Once the mixture is smooth, add vanilla and stir. Pour over the cereal and stir until coated evenly. Pour covered cereal into a 1 gallon ziplock bag.

3. Add powered sugar. Seal bag and shake until evenly coated. Spread onto waxed paper to cool. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

**This is so fun! Check out the for more Chex recipes.

**I usually add 1/2 cup powered sugar to the bottom of the bag and then add some Chex mix, 1/2 cup powered sugar, Chex mix, 1/2 cup powered sugar, Chex mix. Layering it in the bag helps to distribute the powered sugar more evenly.
