A million years ago, I hinted that I wanted to post more recipes - courtesy of the boyfriend - and I fell down on the job a bit with that, but I've been updating recipe binders so I guess food is on my brain and now it's back on the blog!
This recipe is TOTALLY unhealthy, but like most things made with chocolate, sugar, and peanut butter, AMAZINGLY delicious! Seriously, you might become addicted. And then you might need to be carted around in a wheelbarrow. Or maybe that was just what I was fantasizing about and fearing...
To be fair, we've used margarine to make it a bit healthier. I'm not sure how much it helps, but I think we felt better about eating it! And it's gluten-free, very kid friendly, and not hard to make.
So here's the recipe and the link to the Scribd location where I have a free printable for you! It's just the recipe that you can download, print out, and put in a recipe binder... or save on your computer or whatever to use when you please... enjoy!
And note that I cannot take credit for this, the original recipe is here on allrecipes.com.
- 9 cups Rice Chex, Corn Chex, Chocolate Chex, or Honey Nut Chex cereal [the boyfriend has mixed in a couple varieties together when we had various portions leftover and you couldn't taste the difference]
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1.5 cups powdered sugar
1. Measure cereal into a large bowl and set it aside.
2. Microwave the choclolate chips, peanut butter, and butter uncovered on high for 1 minute in a 1-quart microwavable bowl. Stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth.
3. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
4. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator. Makes 18 servings of awesomeness.
