Have you ever heard of Chocolate Puppy Chow?

I remember having this at sleepovers when I was quit young. It was chex mix tossed with peanut butter and melted chocolate coated with powdered sugar. It looked just like a bunch of puppy food. Does anyone remember this and if you do, do you have a good recipe for it?

I used to love this stuff. I don't know a kid who doesn't love it. Now it's far too sweet for me. I'd love it if it was just Chex, peanut butter, and dark chocolate and somehow skip the powdered sugar but that would probably be even messier to eat.

I actually made some of it after reading this discussion yesterday. I have not had it in years either. You are right, it is just too darn sweet now.

It's funny how our tastes change. Growing up, I remember hearing my parents say that some things were too sweet for them and I would think "too sweet? how is that possible?" :-)

I'm actually afraid of how much I will eat if I make it. Especially if I'm home alone and the bowl just keeps calling my name.

My aunt used to make it every year for our family reunion. I used to love that stuff. I have not had it in a long time. I have also heard of them being called Muddy Buddies. Here is the one from the Chex website. 9 cups Corn Chex®, Rice Chex®, Wheat Chex® or Chocolate Chex® cereal (or combination) 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips 1/2 cup peanut butter 1/4 cup butter or margarine 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar Preparation Directions: 1. Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside. 2. In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag. 3. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
