Puppy Chow for People?

This is such an odd name for a yummy little treat. It is really easy to make and store and most people love the chocolate/peanut butter combo. It looks pretty in tins as Christmas gifts for teachers, neighbors, etc.
Melt together in microwave or on stove top:
1 stick butter
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
10-12 ounces chocolate chips
(I do this in the microwave in a 5 qt plastic bowl)
Once it is melted, stir until combined and smooth.
Then stir in a 12 ounce box of rice or corn chex cereal. Make sure all the cereal gets coated. I then take a gallon size ziplock bag and pour powdered sugar in. Better to start with a 1/2 cup of sugar and then add more if needed. ( That way when you pour out the first batch you don't loose all the extra sugar.) Start scooping in the cereal mixture and then seal and shake. Check to see if all the cereal is coated. I do this in batches. It is easier to coat them when the bag is not entirely full. About halfway is best. You can store this in the fridge, but we just put it in a sealed storage container on the countertop. It goes fast, so it is a good thing the recipe makes a very large batch!
