They sent me some great recipes to choose from, but in the end I decided to search their site for the Chex Muddy Buddies recipe. I've heard this called "White Trash" and "Puppy Chow". I've always wanted to make this and never tried it before.
Here's what we did:
Chex Muddy Buddies (courtesy of Chex)
3/4 cup butterscotch chips
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
9 cups Chex cereal (we used Rice Chex)
1-1/2 cup powdered sugar
In large microwaveable bowl, add butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Microwave on high for 1 minute.
Remove and stir. Return to microwave and cook on high for 30 seconds. Remove and stir until creamy. The butterscotch chips didn't melt all the way, but it worked fine. Add vanilla extract and stir until combined.
Measure 9 cups of Rice Chex mix into the melted mixture and stir until coated.
In a large paper bag, pour the powdered sugar and then pour the Rice Chex coated mixture into the bag.
Close the top and and toss and shake until well coated. Pour into a container and cool completely.
We measured out about 2 cups per 5 take out containers. We loved it! So yummy!
