These are one of the easiest and most yummy (and a kid pleaser) snacks EVER!! Kyla was in charge of taking snacks for her DI (Destination Imagination) practice last week and so this is what we made and shared! It would also make a fun gift for teachers/neighbors!
9 cups Chex (rice, wheat, corn, chocolate or a mixture...off brand works well too!)
1 cup semi-sweet chocoalte chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Measure cereal and pour into a large bowl and set aside.
In a microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute then stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal and stir until all the cereal is coated. Pour into 2-gallon food-storage plastic bag. Add powdered sugar, seal bag and shake well until coated. Spread on a cookies sheet or on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator (if it doesn't get eaten right away!)
We just put some in a plastic baggie and tied them up with red ribbon for Kyla to take to her practice, and I think they turned out pretty darn cute and SUPER easy!
