Muddy Buddies

I have a brother that loves loves loves this stuff.  My kids love it and every time we make it, I always think of my brother.  It is so great. It is funny how some foods and/or smells can bring a memory to mind when cooking, baking, eating, etc.  

Muddy Buddies
9 cups Corn Chex cereal
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margaine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2-2 cups powdered sugar

Pour cups of cereal into a large mixing bowl and set aside. In a medium sized saucepan, melt chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter together. Once fully melted and creamy, stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated.

Pour chocolate coated cereal into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag. {I use plastic grocery sacks doubled. Of course that have been washed and fully dry}Let cereal cool for a couple minutes.  If too warm, the powdered sugar will just "melt" to cereal.  Once cooled a little, Add powdered sugar. Seal bag {or tie plastic bag handles closed}shake until well coated. Store in an air tight container or in the refrigerator.
