Ready In:
12 cups




  • Measure out the Crispix cereal in a very large bowl (one in which you can toss the cereal to evenly coat with the chocolate/peanut butter mixture).
  • Melt the chocolate chips in either a double boiler or the microwave.
  • Add the peanut butter; stir well.
  • Pour the chocolate/peanut butter mixture over the Crispix cereal.
  • Toss the cereal with the chocolate/peanut butter mixture until the cereal is evenly coated.
  • Using a gallon size freezer bag, put about 1/3 of the box of confectioners sugar in the bottom.
  • Add half the cereal mixture and toss in the bag until evenly coated with confectioner's sugar.
  • Add the remainder of the cereal and top with another 1/3 of the box of confectioners sugar.
  • Toss until all the cereal is white in color (for the most part); add more confectioners sugar as needed.

  2. Perfect. I've been thinking about how we had these years and years ago when I worked at a summer camp and have only now gotten around to finding the proportions. Mmm mmm mmm!!! Thanks for the memories! Our house church will love this!
  3. I've made this recipe(although a little different) for years and it is always a huge hit. My recipe is just a smaller version, which is great because I don't want to make too much-we might feel obligated to eat it all. :-) Whenever I buy my DH some of his favorite cereal, Crispix, I always reserve the right to use half of it to make puppy chow, which is what we call this. Thanks for posting it this way, I've seen lots that use butter but I like it better this way.


I live in to Jacksonville, FL with my husband, 2 daughters (17 and 11), 4 cats, and 2 dogs. My favorite things to make are cookies/bars and pound cakes. I have had a great time cooking since discovering Recipezaar January 2002. This is a picture of my youngest cat, Lily. She is my sweet sweet little baby.
