“I never get powdered sugar on my clothes when I eat puppy chow,” said no-one ever.
I say, just own the mess and make a batch of puppy chow coated in so much chocolate, peanut butter, and powdered sugar that you’ll look like one of my children after eating a meal: powdered sugar in your hair, on your eye brows, on your ankles, and somehow on the toys you played with hours before (how does that work, exactly?).
If you’re anything like me, this puppy chow will be gone in less than one hour. Do yourself a favor: put on your favorite pair of sweatpants, turn on Netflix, and dig in.

1 (12 oz) box rice chex
1 (12 oz) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 (2 lb) bag powdered sugar
Make the puppy chow: Pour the box of chex into a very large bowl.
Place the chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 60 seconds and then stir until smooth. If the chocolate chips haven't fully melted , microwave for 30 second intervals, until the mixture is completely melted. Then mix in vanilla.
Pour the chocolate mixture over the cereal and, using a spatula, stir gently until the cereal is coated.
Slowly add the powdered sugar. Mix. And pour again until mixture is completely white. There will be extra sugar at the bottom of the bowl but this is the best part.
