Puppy Chow

9 cups Chex cereal (any variety)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Measure cereal into a large bowl and set aside.
Microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter in a 1 quart bowl on high for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave again, checking every 30 seconds until it mixes smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour this mixture over cereal stirring until evenly coated.
Pour into a 2 gallon resealable food storage bag. (I use a brown grocery sack) Add the powdered sugar. Seal and shake and shake.
After it is all coated can be spread on wax paper to cool if desired. Store in an airtight container. If warm in house store in fridge.

I have seen this presented as a gift where they filled a dog dish with it and attached the following poem.

Puppy Chow
This may look like puppy chow
but it is really made for you.
Have a handful and you just....
might be wagging your tail too!
