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.
Very easy no bake dessert.
Oh this is fabulous chow. I used semisweet chips and we all liked that. The vanilla is key I think. I also added some peanuts to the mix. It was a great snack for everyone. I will make this again soon! Made and Reviewed for Spring PAC 2009. Thanks! :)
This is the same recipe we use for puppy chow and my kiddos love it. On one occassion when I accidentally forgot to add the vanilla they said it wasn't nearly as good!
