Chex Muddy Buddies
This is a wonderful and simple snack, that kids can make. There is no baking required, nor do you have to use a stove. All heating is done in the microwave oven. It's a good way to teach your kids about measuring.

9 cups Chex cerals (Corn, Rice and/or Wheat)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanutbutter
1/4 cup margarine
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar (I generally use more to make sure everything is coated really well)

  1. Pour cereals into a large bowl; set aside.
  2. In a 1-quart microwave-safe bowl combine semi-sweet chocalate chips, peanut butter, and margarine. Microwave on high 1 1-1/2 minutes or until smooth, stirring after 1 minute. Stir in vanilla.
  3. Pour chocolate mixture over cereals, stirring until all pieces are evenly coated. Pour cereal mixture into a large resealable plastic bag with powdered sugar. Seal securely and shake until all pieces are well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool.

This is excellent. When I was teaching preschool, we always made this during "pet" week.... only we called it "puppy chow" and served it in cheap (read "dollar store") pet food bowls. It was always fun to see parents' reactions to "snack for today- puppy chow" on the notes home!

I make this "Puppy Chow" every year for xmas to give to my co- workers and friends. They love it and ask for it all year long. I use milk chocolate instead of semi sweet and I use the whole bag, which is just over a cup. I also use one more spoon full of peanut butter, and a couple extra tbl spoons of butter (to make the mixture smoother). I keep the cereal measurments the same, and i just pour a splash of vanilla in the choc. mix.
I agree that it is a good cooking project for kids. It can get a little messy, but its fun to make.
