Oh my...I love puppy chow! It is so yummy! Highly habit forming though... Would you believe I had never even heard of it until about a month ago? My sister-in-law made some for a gathering and I fell in love with it. Mmmmm....
Consider yourself warned - you will probably want to eat the whole bowl : ) This recipe is a snap to throw together, and can easily be cut in half (just weigh out 7 oz of the cereal, or measure out about 6 cups). Yummy!

Makes about 36 1/2-cup servings
1 (14 oz) box Corn Chex (can use Wheat Chex instead)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup smooth peanut butter (or almond butter!)
1 (12 oz) bag (or 2 cups) chocolate chips (I use semi-sweet)
1 lb confectioners sugar (or about 3 cups)
Melt butter, peanut butter, and chocolate chips over medium-low heat, stirring often, until smooth.
Pour Chex cereal into a large bowl. Pour chocolate mixture over cereal. Gently stir or fold cereal until all the squares are evenly coated with the chocolate. Add confectioners sugar. Stir until well coated, and there are no clumps of cereal (they should be in individual squares). Enjoy!
