This is basically a Puppy Chow recipe but with an added ingredient which enhances the flavor. My brother was kind enough to share his recipe with me - enjoy.

I have made this with and without the vanilla and I must say I like it better with. I was using a 12oz box of Cripix and decided to go ahead and add the rest of the box (about 1 1/2 cups) as there was plenty of chocolate mixture. This recipe is really forgiving you can add a little more chocolate or peanut butter depending on your preference.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Measure out the Chex cereal into a large bowl, set aside.
  2. Measure out the powdered sugar in a large plastic bag, set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan melt the chocolate chips (milk, semi-sweet or dark - your preference), peanut butter and butter together over low heat.
  4. After everything is melted together and very smooth add the vanilla - mix well.
  5. Pour the melted chocolate mixture over the Chex. Stir together well, making sure that all the pieces of Chex are covered in the melted chocolate.
  6. Pour the Chex mixture into the plastic bag with powdered sugar in it. Close bag & shake well until all the Chex pieces are coated in a layer of powdered sugar (can use more powdered sugar if you like).
  7. Pour into a bowl & enjoy!
