Puppy Chow aka Christmas Trash

Despite its name, this is for human consumption. This is one of my favorite recipes to make each year at Christmas.

1 box (or equivalent) of Crispix cereal
1 stick of butter
1 c. of peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
3 c. powdered (icing) sugar

Melt the butter in a small saucepan on the stove. Add in peanut butter, stirring until well disolved. Stir in vanilla. Dump the cereal in a large bowl that has a tight fitting lid (this is the most important step). Pour the butter mixture over the cereal, toss to coat with a spoon. Add 1 c. of the sugar, put the lid on the bowl, and shake well. Repeat with remaining sugar until mix is well coated.
This is the original recipe. Today I used 1/2 box Crispix, 1 box of kix, and a medium bag of M&M's, and doubled the PB mix. This makes a nice gift when packaged in a pretty tin or jar, or even in plastic bag tied up with ribbon.
