This year I decided that I would make some gluten free treats for everyone. I did some searching online for some new ideas. I was going to make some of my cookies or brownies but really wanted something else. About a month ago I heard that Chex® now has a gluten free option…Rice Chex®! So, I decided to make some Puppy Chow or Muddy Buddies®. Who doesn’t love these little treats??
9 cups Rice Chex® cereal (gluten free)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1. Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.
2. In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
3. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
I made a double batch and ended up with 40 of the bags you see in the photo above…ENJOY!!
