Camping Munch

(Also known as "MonkeeMunch" or "PuppyChow")

I was first introduced to this yummy delight back in High School. I worked as a lifeguard and on a break, my co-worker, Nicki, shared this snack with me! Luckily, she knew the recipe off hand and willingly gave it to me! I always make this when we travel or go camping (hence our family's new nickname ). There are many variations of this recipe out there, so if you dont already have one, this is a keeper! It is delightful on its own, but you can easily omit the cereal and powdered sugar and pour the chocolate/peanut butter mixture over ice-cream as a topping...or better yet, make the complete recipe and then place it on ice-cream! No matter what you call it, or how you make is GOOD!!!


2 cups chocolate chips (semi-sweet)

1 cup peanut Butter

1/2 cup butter

1 large box Toasted Rice Ceral (like Chex or Crispix)

3 cups powdered sugar

Heat chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter on HIGH in a glass bowl in microwave until melted. (Or heat on the stove top). Mix well. Combine cereal and chocolate mix in a large bowl. Stir until cereal is completely coated. Place powdered sugar in a large ziplock bag (at least the gallon size...preferably larger). Add cereal mix, and shake to coat. Spread on wax paper and let stand until set!
