Puppy Chow

Love me some puppy chow. Not that kind! Gross!
The homemade powdery Crispix kind. Although, I didn't use Crispix. Hy-Vee had hexagonal crispy rice on sale for $2 less than Crispix. So it was my obvious choice. I also shook up the recipe because the Farmer doesn't like chocolate. (I can hear the gasps of women everywhere!) Because I love him, I made it with butterscotch chips...which don't melt quite as easily so I had to make some modifications. Read on for the yummy recipe.

Butterscotch Puppy Chow
9 cups Crispix, Corn Chex, Hexagonal Crisps, etc.
12 oz. pkg butterscotch chips
1/2 stick of butter (I use salted)
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used chunky because again, the Farmer doesn't like creamy...picky isn't he?)
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar (or more if necessary)

Place cereal in large mixing bowl (I use a huge popcorn bowl so it's easy to mix around). Heat butterscotch chips in microwave until soft (I used a large glass measuring cup for this), add butter and microwave again until butter has melted (this will help the butterscotch chips to melt). Stir until you have a butterscotch liquid. Add peanut butter and stir. Pour on top of cereal (another reason the glass measuring cup is good to use-it has a spout!) and stir until evenly coated. If your bowl has a lid, dust powdered sugar on top, close lid and shake! If not, pour contents into gallon sized baggy (I've also heard of using a paper grocery bag) and shake! Put into freezer for 10 mins to allow to harden. Break apart (if frozen together), EAT!

It is SO good. I love the chocolate version, but this version is yummy! Try it, you'll like it! (Can also use peanut butter chips, white chocolate, etc.)

Warning!!! This stuff is addictive!
