This is one recipe that I HAVE to make every year. My kids love it..oh..I do too! This also makes a great idea for gifts. Fill up some pretty jars with Puppy Chow and decorate with a ribbon and gift tag for a fun gift. You can also fill little cookie tins to give as gifts. OR…you can just eat it :)!! Enjoy!
- 1 package chocolate chips
- ½ cup butter
- ½ cup creamy peanut butter
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 8 cups round roasted oat cereal
- 2 to 3 cups powdered sugar
Stirring constantly, melt chocolate chips and butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add peanut butter and cinnamon; stir until smooth. Place cereal in a large bowl. Pour chocolate mixture over cereal; stir until evenly coated. Pour powdered sugar into a large paper bag; add chocolate coated cereal. Gently shake bag until mixture is evenly coated with powdered sugar. Spread onto waxed paper; allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
