Saturday recipe for fun!!

I know I have been absent, but seriously I have been reading an insane amount of books. In fact, I have overwhelmed 6 different people (combined they can't seem to keep up, like they have a life or something.....)


Anyway, I am doing very well. The sun is out, I wake every morning with the love of my life, and I am surrounded but the most wonderful friends anyone could hope for.

So today, the Hubby and I spent some time in the kitchen making a very simple yet scrumptious little treat!! (And yes Lil' Deb, we did have our Jammies on the entire time!!!). See, I had just finished yet another book, and was in the office looking for the next one, when my eye was caught. Remember the family cook book that was put together after the passing of my Grandma? Well, I have decided to walk through a revival of sorts. I have already made the two favorite cookie recipes from Grandma, and then proceeded to eat each batch entirely!

So, today was a first time treat with this one, and we were not disappointed! I give this a 1 on the easy scale, a 1 on cost of ingredients scale, and a 5 on the happy taste scale!!! (this is of course on a scale of 1 to 5). Oh, and if there are children involved, even more fun!! Here you go, family recipe for Saturdays......

Puppy Chow

9 cups Chex or Crispix type Cereal
1 cup Chocolate chips, semi sweet (you do know I used the entire bag.....one can never have to much chocolate!)
1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/4 cup Butter or Margarine
1 tsp vanilla
1 and 1/2 cups powdered Sugar

Measure cereal into large bowl and set aside. Microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and margarine in a 1 quart microwaveable bowl for one minute uncovered. Stir, microwave another 30 seconds or until the mixture can be stirred smooth. Add vanilla and stir. Pour this mixture over the cereal and toss until evenly coated. Pour into a large plastic food storage bag, add powdered sugar and seal bag. Shake until well coated. Spread on wax paper until cooled. Store in an airtight container.

Predo, you are just bad to the bone. You should have never told me about this. Don't you know I am a girl trying to lose weight?
Oh. Well, now you do!
Sure am glad to see a post from you again!

So glad to see you back darlin!

Hi Predo - you are so right - "one can never have too much chocolate".

Now that you've mastered Puppy Chow...and I'm sure that Chow is all gone and you're hankering for more chocolate & peanut butter...check out my posted recipe for Monster Cookies. It's really easy and makes a ton of cookies - so you can eat your fill and still have some to share.

I'm not pushing my blog, it's just serendipity that you commented on my friend Krissa's blog, and I checked out your post about trying out some sweet recipes.
