Monkey Munch

Recently my freind Joy and I were talking about a yummy snack she calls, "Monkey Munch." I remember eating this, but we called it, "Puppy Chow." There aren't any bananas in it, but I do refer to my boys as monkeys, so I think I am calling it...

MONKEY MUNCH

1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1/4 cup Butter
1 cup Chocolate Chips
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
9 cups Crispix or Chex cereal (We like Corn Chex the best)
1-1/2 cups Powdered Sugar

In a large pot, melt the butter, peanut butter and chocolate chips until smooth. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour in the cereal and stir gently until the cereal is coated. Put the powdered sugar in a large resealable bag. Pour in the chocolate-y, peanut-y cereal and shake. Serve to monkeys and munch!

Oh yeah ... I love "Puppy Chow" (as we call it here). I am going to make some soon, as part of our Christmas sweets binge. I have heard Kate on Jon and Kate Plus Eight call it Monkey Munch. Yumm!!

Thanks for visiting and commenting at my blog! I love that you have three boys. I have three girls - so we're just opposite. And, I used to be a teacher also!

You could always add banana chips to it and then call it healthy!

My monkey is still too young (according to our pediatrician) for peanut butter, but I know he will love "monkey munch" when it is time. I think I will call it "puppy chow" for him though (that's how I knew it as a little girl) as he is already fond of eating foods off the floor as if he is a dog.

My kids would love this! I think we'll make it this weekend.

I call it puppy chow as well, and actually just sent some to my hubby today! Thanks for your comment yesterday. I think she was probably planning on shoe shopping until she looked in the purse and found it empty...

I love this stuff! But my poor son is allergic to peanuts so I've never made it. I could eat a whole batch of it in one sitting....YUM!


Hmmmmm...I wonder if I could make it with soy butter instead of peanut butter?! I may have to give that a try!
