Muddy Buddies~The Screaming Snack!!

Last Friday night I was craving something sweet, but needed it to be quick and simple.  Then I remembered this recipe that one of my son's friends introduced us to a few years ago.  DELICIOUS!! The great thing is my kids were outside playing when I made them.  My youngest came in and said, "Oh something smells good!" She wandered over to the counter saw the Muddy Buddies and started to scream with delight!! It was hilarious!! So now I call them "The Screaming Snack!!
Muddy Buddies
9 cups corn chex (or other flavor)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Measure cereal into a large bowl and set aside.
In a microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on high for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave aabout 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth.  Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal and stir until evenly coated.  Add powdered sugar and mix until evenly coated or place mixture in a resealable bag and shake the powered sugar on the cereal.  Spread out on wax paper to cool.  Store in an airtight container in refrigerator.
Next time I will make a double batch because they were gone in a flash!!
