Trash/Monkey Munch/Puppy Chow... Whatever!

Friday, February 26, 2010
I always oogle this recipe as it floats around. It's funny because it's so simple and really just a quick snack to make. We never really have Chex Mix in our house and have never had an inclination to buy it, so the opportunity to make this never arose. But I made it a point to try this, and it actually happened!

I first heard this called trash in my family, so I am forever tied to that name. It's funny, the first time I saw this at a family party, I thought it looked disgusting. It was called trash and I'd never seen anything like it. Can you blame me? I was probably 10 years old. Now I'm obsessed!

The only bad part about making this was I keep eating it! I may not be able to make this again after how crazy I went eating it. Maybe a once a year thing. Yes, I went that crazy for it that I have to limit myself!

But honestly at least make it once and you'll be in love<3

1/4 cup butter
1/2 smooth, creamy peanut butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla(I forgot to add this, as usual. Honestly I forget vanilla in almost all my recipes!)
9 cups Chex Mix (Or any generic brand resembling it)
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar (I'm pretty sure I was close to 2 1/2 he he)

Microwave the butter, peanut butter, and chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for 1 minute. I did 30 and 30 so I could stir it in between and not burn it. Then an extra safe 30 seconds to fully melt it.

Put the chex in an extra large bowl so you have room for stirring. Pour the chocolate/pb mixture over your chex until fully and evenly incorporated. Then add your powdered sugar in until it covers all the chocolate.

You can wait a minute or so for the chocolate to settle/harden, or just dive in like me!

    Trash never looked so good! I admit that I can't make this. I would eat the entire bowl in one sitting. Once a year for me, too!
